How long Can LED Display Screens Last?

How long can LED displays be used? To answer this question, it is important to determine the type, structure, and conditions surrounding the LED display. Learn about the factors that affect the lifespan of LED displays and how to extend their lifespan.

LED display structure affects lifespan

The mainstream housing material is aluminum alloy, made of industrial-grade aluminum profiles, lightweight and long-lasting. All outdoor LED displays have undergone weather sealing tests and have protection levels above the national standard, so they can withstand any type of rainfall and corrosion. The frame structure and steel structure also affect the overall lifespan of the display.

Temperature of LED displays

Heat is the number one enemy of outdoor LED displays and the greatest factor affecting LED lifespan. Proper ventilation during installation and temperature sensor fans inside the display will extend the life of the LED. When installing indoor and outdoor LED displays, consider their working temperature, as different temperatures will have a significant impact on the lifespan of the display. If necessary, air conditioning can be added, while in the colder Northeastern regions, it is unnecessary, reducing operating costs. Outdoor LED media screens require less maintenance. Indoor screens also require little maintenance, mainly dust and pollution from outdoor environments such as weeds and small animals. Regular grounding inspections and timely replacement of unstable modules are necessary.

Duration of LED display operation

Using the display during normal working hours will extend the lifespan of the LED display. Preventing long-term high brightness or white screen will also extend the lifespan of the display.

Special content on LED displays

LED uses red, green, and blue colors, but they can produce a variety of colors. The colors used in LED displays will also affect the lifespan of the LED. To produce a white background or text, red, green, and blue LEDs work at full power, shortening their lifespan. Since other colors require less power, using less white in LED media screen content will extend the lifespan of the LED.

If you use LED displays 24/7, 7 days a week, your outdoor LED sign is expected to last approximately 100,000 hours - about 10 to 11 years, but you can extend its lifespan. In our daily lives, traffic guidance screens need to be lit for a long time, running 24/7, so the quality and quality requirements for technology and components are relatively high. By proper maintenance, proper installation, a little rest time, and careful color selection, you can extend the lifespan of your LED to 15 years or more! The lifespan of indoor LED displays can be even longer.

Overall, as long as they are qualified LED displays, their overall lifespan is considerable. Furthermore, LED displays are maintained in groups and can have their faulty components replaced individually, so their lifespan can be extended to a certain extent. Therefore, investing once and using multiple times is not a problem. It is recommended to consider trends for five to ten years during the design phase, and choose a higher level of clarity appropriately, ensuring that it can meet functional needs for a longer period of time in the future.
