Are You Benefitting from LED Lights?

Why LEDs Are Superior

You have several choices when it comes to the type of light bulbs you install in your home. Recently, LED lights have become the preferred choice for home and business owners alike.

Light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, have become the top lighting technology for several reasons.

Efficiency

LED lights are the most energy-efficient models on the market. According to the Department of Energy, LEDs use at least 75% less energy than traditional bulbs and last up to 25 times longer. That is a huge amount of energy savings!

Also, LEDs emit very little heat when turned on, compared to incandescent bulbs, which emit 90% of their energy as heat.

Environmentally Safe

Traditional lights like fluorescents use mercury and can be dangerous when not in use. Therefore, special consideration needs to happen when disposing of the light bulbs. That isn’t necessary with LED lights.

Cost Savings

Because of the efficiency of LED lights, you’ll save money on your energy bills over time. Originally, LED light bulbs had a high price tag, but as technology and availability improve, the upfront cost continues to reduce.

You’ll clearly see the savings when you switch to LED lights.

Lighting Quality

If all these reasons weren’t enough, LED lights are still higher quality than traditional lights. LEDs are directional lights, meaning they point light in a specific direction, rather than all over the place. This makes them a better choice for task lighting and small spaces.

LED lights also usually have a higher color-rendering index (CRI), which is the measurement of how light makes objects look when compared to natural light. They also work great for dimming and are so small that they fit in many applications.
