Go LED: 4 Reasons to Consider Switching to LED Light Bulbs

Welcome to a brighter world!

LED lights are the future. These leading electroluminescent lights are not only eco-friendly and effective, they also look great. If you’re considering switching to LED light bulbs, but you’re still on the fence, consider these four great reasons to make the switch today!

1. Eco-Friendly

LED lights have the longest lifespan of any other light bulb. With up to 50,000 hours of light, they last 40 times longer than incandescent bulbs.

Not only will you save money on buying fewer bulbs, but LED bulbs cut down on your energy bills while helping the environment. In fact, you can save up to 84% on energy bills compared to CFL or incandescent bulbs. If for no other reason, reducing your carbon footprint and doing your small part to save the planet is the perfect reason to switch to LED light bulbs.

2. Lighting

LED lights utilize two-lead semiconductors to give off a consistently bright, warm glow. Plus, LED lights can give off any color without a filter, increasing their efficiency. As an incredibly versatile bulb, they can be used in anything from traffic signals, professional photography lighting, interior lighting, and even automotive headlamps.

3. Safety

LED lights are also much safer than other bulbs. Most LED lights are deemed “safe under all conditions of normal use.” They are also much less likely than any other bulb to cause damage if accidentally put too close to anything flammable as they give off very little heat. Instead of an abrupt stop, the LED light slowly fades, which allows you a chance to replace the bulb before you are stranded in the dark.

4. Tech Specs

LED lights can be easily and precisely dimmed by using a type of stroboscopic effect of pulse-width modulation. They also do not need a reflector to focus the light. Instead, LED lights use Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lenses. For any on-off cycling, LED is ideal. Unlike other bulbs, LED lights do not fail faster with an on-off cycle.

As you can see, despite the higher initial cost of LED lighting, long terms costs are significantly lower. If you care about the environment, about saving money, and about having a reliable light source, invest in a bulb that won’t let you down.
