Both neon signs and LED signs have their place in the battle for bold, edgy aesthetics. While both are options for decorating your bedroom, living room, or store, it can be difficult to weigh the pros and cons of each. Both have similar effects, they both attract people’s attention and set the mood. Which one is right for you? Are you sure that LED signs will do the job, or neon signs with bright fluorescence? Are the LED signs able to deliver the vision you have in mind? This guide will compare the pros and cons of both LED and neon signs.
An LED sign or a neon sign will provide bright, fluorescent aesthetics for the space you are decorating. Because neon signs are made of glass tubes filled with inert gases, their reactions create energy that produces more fluorescence. Because LED signs are simply a collection of diodes that emit overlapping light, they are much duller than neon signs. The overlapping enhances their brightness but does not produce as much fluorescence. Neon signs are best if you need something bright and bold that is easily visible from far away. You can also use LED signs to keep the lights dimmed and rearranged in the same space.
LED signs are the best at utilizing energy. However, this is a conditional win. If the signs are large, LED signs win easily by a mile. An LED sign large enough to be used can take almost 1200 volts. A similar-sized LED sign can use much less energy and can be run on only 15 volts. Both signs will require the same amount of energy if they are smaller than each other. If you want a sign that consumes less energy, choose an LED sign. However, neon signs can be used if you are happy with higher energy consumption.
Neon signs are more popular than LED signs so they can be personalized more. They come in a variety of shapes and phrases, but you can also order a customized neon sign that is made to your specifications. They are more expensive than LED signs, but they last longer. It’s a well-deserved tie between them both.
