If your business’ outdoor signage is powered with neon lighting, it may be time for an upgrade.
You might have noticed this on your own, after seeing how easily a neon light can go out, making your business’ sign look like it’s missing a letter or two at night. Or you might just be wondering what other options you have for your small business’ sign.
Either way, there are a number of reasons why you should be switching from neon, and why LED lighting is the best option you have for external signage.
Still not convinced that it’s time to invest in LED business signs and throw away your old yet undoubtedly eye-catching neon small business sign? Here are three of the biggest advantages that LED lighting boasts over neon:
LED display signs are cheaper
Did you know that it takes one-tenth the power needed to light a neon sign to keep an LED sign lit? Because LED business signs require so little power, they’re also incredibly less expensive to keep lit. This means significant savings for your business, which is always a good thing. LED-lit signs are also cheaper in terms of up-front costs, as neon signs can cost hundreds of dollars.
LED lighting lasts longer
The life span of an LED light is also another one of its strong points. The average LED light can run for as long as 10 years before it will need to be replaced; neon lights, on the other hand, need to be periodically refilled and maintained in order to keep them working.
LED lighting is more versatile
Neon lights get their distinctive look because the lights must be tube-shaped in order to work. If your business or brand needs a new look, LED lights are the way to go — they can be used for any shape or size of sign, and can change colors like neon can’t. Another great benefit of LED lighting is the fact that it can be seen from a much further distance than neon can.
