If you’ve purchased LED lights for your home, you likely know about one of their top benefits — long lifespans. Many drivers visit our truck shop in Lloydminster with the plan of investing in quality headlights, and are surprised to learn that our LED truck lights may outlive the vehicle itself.
To give you an idea of how effective these lights are compared to traditional bulbs, we’ve compiled a few industry averages covering the life expectancy of each product:
- Halogen — 1,000 hours. Based on how often you drive, this number may be perfectly acceptable. For working professionals and off-road enthusiasts, halogen lights may prove to be a costly choice.
- HID — 2,000 hours. While beneficial in many regards, drivers find that the higher cost of their HID bulbs do not outweigh how often these lights need to be replaced.
- LED — 20,000 hours. The longevity of your LED bulbs can range from 10,000 to 30,000 hours or more, based on the quality of installation.
We’re not saying LED truck lights are perfect. Many consumers are quick to point out the upfront cost of LED bulbs, which is why we like to use math (yes, math!) to highlight the long-term advantages of this modern bulb. If an LED bulb is rated to last 10 times longer than halogens, the price should be roughly 10 times higher to break even. When you visit Tidy Truck in Lloydminster, our team can walk through which headlights are best for your needs, and will be happy to discuss why these bulbs are so much more beneficial!
