LED Conversions | Light Emitting Diodes

LED Light Emitting Diodes are low voltage diodes that produce an exceptional amount of light but consume a low amount of energy.LED Lighting operates on either 12 or 24 volt systems and will last up to 100,000 hours. Neon on the other hand operates on a High Voltage system which consumes more power to operate your sign. It is a waste of energy to use neon when we have so many LED Accessories available today. With an LED Conversion, you will SAVE MONEY on your electric bill, and high cost service calls for neon repair. Low voltage LED Light Conversions is the future of electric signs.
