Why You Should Be Using LED Lights
When you head to your favorite big box store to purchase light bulbs, it’s hard not to notice the newest in technology.
Energy efficient lighting will not only save you money over time, but it will also protect our earth in the process. And for many people, that means moving to LED technology.
LED – Light Emitting Diode – lights are extremely efficient and come in a wide range of sizes to meet both residential and commercial needs.
They are long lasting. LED light bulbs can last up to ten times longer than fluorescent light bulbs, and last up to 25 times longer than incandescent light bulbs.
They don’t cause heat buildup. Because LED light bulbs generate less heat and stay cool to the touch, they don’t generate much less heat within your home or office. Meaning your air conditioning needs don’t increase to overcompensate from the heat produced by your lighting.
They use less power. LED lighting uses less power than other types of lighting. This means you’ll save on your monthly utility bills from the moment you have them installed. The typical LED PAR30 bulb uses 10-12 watts, instead of a 75 watt halogen bulb.
They are safer for the environment. LED light bulbs are completely free of hazardous mercury and other materials that make them environmentally unfriendly when deposited into landfills.
They are durable. LED lights are extremely durable and can resist extreme conditions, including vibrations and other impacts. Typically LED bulbs are rated for 25,000 – 50,000 burn hours, which gives you nearly 20 years of usage.
They pay for themselves over time. Yes, LED light bulbs may cost more initially. But because they last longer and require less energy to operate, they will save you money in the long run.
LED lights are quickly becoming the preferred lighting option for all residential and commercial needs. Are you using LED lights in your home or office?
