Hi everyone, my name is Georgiann and I’m with Inspired Rep Group. I’m a manufacturer’s rep; today representing RV lighting, your premier source of LED light replacement bulbs in the RV industry. Today were going to be talking about why an LED is appropriate for you and your coach. So LED’s really mean: Light Emitting Diode. Light emitting diode ultimately means that were using electricity to produce the light instead of using a filament heat. Light emitting diodes come in all sorts of forms and colors. Primarily they come in two different colors that are available in the RV industry. Those two colors are Cold White or Natural light which is really a blue/white. 

It is the brighter, more daylight light. The second one is the “Warm White” or the incandescent color which is more of a yellow light that you’re used to inside of your coach. The cool white is primarily used for task or reading applications. Whereas the warm light is more for your general seating, general area. There are multiple reasons to use LED over a traditional incandescent, fluorescent, or halogen light. Those reasons primarily are the amount of light. LED’s can produce anywhere from 10x-50x amount of light than a normal light bulb would in your same fixture. The LED also produces very little heat.

The amount of energy that an LED will use is 1/10th the amount of energy that a regular incandescent will use. An incandescent can use up to 1 amp of power where as an LED will only use 1/10th of that. Which ultimately means you can run 10 LED bulbs on the same amount of power that your 1 incandescent would run. Fluorescent are a little bit more energy efficient. And you will get 1 to 2000 hours with and incandescent bulb. You’ll get 10,000-15,000 hours on a fluorescent bulb and you will get 20,000-50,000 hours of available light with an LED. I hope this has helped you today choose why you should use LED’s in your coach over a regular incandescent fluorescent tube or halogen. Thanks everyone and I hope you have a super day.
