Switching to LED bulbs has been recommended numerous times over, but what are the benefits of LEDs? Here are some perks you will enjoy when you switch to LED bulbs.
LED bulbs are more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs. They use about 75% less energy to light your home. So even if you keep your lights on for extended periods you won’t be using as much energy compared to traditional bulbs.
In addition to being more energy efficient, LED bulbs also last longer than incandescent bulbs. As a result, they don’t have to be replaced as often as an incandescent bulb. An LED bulb can last up to 20 years even if turned on for 8 hours a day. LED bulbs can essentially operate for about 30,000 hours while incandescent bulbs only last about 1,000 hours on average.
Better Color Rendering
LED’s, unlike their traditional counterparts, provide a varying range of different colors to fit different needs and purposes.
Doesn’t Get Hot
Ever had to turn the lights off because it was making the room hot? You won’t have that problem with LED bulbs. They don’t get hot even after they have been on for a few hours. LEDs are easier to touch after they’ve been on for a few hours so there’s less risk of accidental burns.
Durability/Cold temp operation
LEDs can endure harsh and extreme weather conditions. They’re not made of glass and are hollow, so they’re generally break resistant. They can withstand vibrations and work well even in extremely cold temperatures. LEDs have actually been proven to have a performance increase as the temperature drops.
Overall, LED bulbs are cost efficient, energy efficient, long lasting and are a far better option than traditional incandescent bulbs.
