10 Reasons to Switch to LED Lighting

Light Emitting Diodes or LEDs are not new technology and have been on the market for quite some time. You might have fallen behind and failed to make the switch in your home. Here are ten reasons why you should.

They Last Longer

It’s true, LED bulbs will last for longer and can go on for over 100,000 hours. That’s 11 years, and it means that you will probably change your home before you change your bulbs. This also means that they last at least twice as long as typical bulbs.

LED Lights Are Brighter

These bulbs actually provide, a true brighter light so if you’re tired of your home being bathed in a yellow tinge this is the switch you need to make. As well as this, they are also available in a range of different colours.

Total Silence

Are you tired of your bulbs making a noise? Whether it’s a tick, a hum or a whiz - lights that make noises can be annoying. Well, you’ll be pleased to hear that LEDs are totally silent.

LED Lights are Completely Green

It’s also worth pointing out that these bulbs are helping to save the planet. Using an incandescent bulb, you will waste eighty percent of the energy as it’s turned into heat. LED bulbs use most of the energy for light and waste hardly any, producing almost no heat. As well as this, they only need 20 percent of the total power used for an incandescent bulb.

Incredibly Safe

This also means that the bulbs are a lot safer because they don’t get as hot. You won’t burn your fingers removing them, and you won’t have to worry about them becoming fire hazard. As well as that, they are very sturdy so even if you drop one, there’s a good chance that it won’t break.

LED is Brilliant For Dimming

If you love dimming the lights to create an atmosphere, you should definitely look into dimmable LED bulbs. They keep their natural colour even when dimmed whereas other bulbs turn yellow.

Rapid Response

Typically, when you switch on a bulb, you have to wait for it to light up. Depending on the type of bulb (such as CFL) it can take a good few minutes before the bulb reaches full power. With LEDs, things are completely different. The bulb reaches full power instantly.

A Better Future

LEDs aren’t just energy efficient, they also don’t contain mercury, and they far outlast other bulbs. As such, LEDs are always going to be the brightest option if you are eager to do your part to help the planet.

Completely Versatile

LEDs can be purchased in a wide variety of different shapes, sizes and indeed colours. As such, they can be used for a variety of different lighting sources in your home and even add a rather unique aesthetic to your room design.

Totally Focused

Finally, LEDs can be focused without using a massive amount of lenses. What does this mean exactly? Well, basically, LEDs can be smaller, lighter and cheaper to build leading to a few worthwhile benefits for consumers.

The bottom line then is that LEDs are the brightest and indeed the best option when choosing lighting for your home.
