LED bulbs, also known as light-emitting diodes, have become one of the most energy efficient technologies of today. Not only do these advanced options last longer than traditional bulbs, they also are more durable, safer, and offer better light quality than any lighting option before. So just what makes them so special? And why should you invest in these technologically advanced options? We’ve got the answers for you.
Perhaps one of the most desirable aspects of LED lighting is the savings associated with them. LEDs are highly efficient and use at least 75 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs (the lighting you grew up with). While using LED bulbs throughout your home can save you lots of money in the long run, it can also help our nation. If everyone used LEDs, we could decrease our electrical output significantly, helping ourselves, our environment and our economy. They truly are a win-win option.
Due to their increased efficiency and lower energy usage, LED bulbs also last 25 times longer than incandescent lighting. In fact, LEDs can have a lifespan of up to 60,000 hours. Most traditional lighting options only have a 1,500 hour lifespan. A high quality LED bulb can light over 7 years of constant (yep, we said constant) use before needing replacement. This reduces maintenance costs for commercial businesses, too!
Unlike traditional lighting options that use neon gas or filament as their source, LEDs utilize semiconductor material, making them far sturdier than typical incandescent bulbs or neon tubes.
Say goodbye to burns and fires. Because LEDs generate no warmth, they can be left lit for hours without danger. This makes them superior to traditional lighting options when it comes to safety.
Exceptional color range
These advanced lighting options also come in a variety of base colors, so you can fine tune your atmosphere based on your personal preferences. These colors include red, blue and amber. In fact, these colors can be mixed together to produce an array of options!
