Benefits of LED Lighting December 09, 2019 Switching to LED bulbs is a great change for your home, as well as the environment! While it may be expensive to change all of your bulbs at once, changing them gradually is a good way to make a difference in the efficiency of your home- without costing you a fortune. Want to find out why LED lights are so great? Keep reading this post!Longer bulb lifespanWith LED bulbs, they last longer than any other type of bulb available. While standard incandescent bulbs last for less than 2000 hours, LED bulbs last for over 25000 hours. This is a huge improvement, meaning you won't have to replace your bulbs anywhere near as often. The longer lifespan makes LED bulbs worth every penny you pay, as you will pay less for bulbs overtime with LED.Range of coloursLED bulbs are available in a range of different colours and shades. For coloured lights, they are the best option to go for, as they don't require filters that can fade over time. Instead, it is the diode itself that changes colour. This makes them a safer and more long term option for colour changing lights. Your lights can be controlled with a remote that can have a wide range of light settings, which would not have been available before.High brightnessThe light produced by LED bulbs is incredibly bright, especially when compared to incandescent bulbs. They are so bright that wattage is no longer the best method to measure the brightness and intensity. Instead, you should look at the lumens available. Energy efficiencyLED bulbs can turn over 70% of their energy into light. This makes them a very efficient bulb to have, as they waste much less energy than other options. As well as this, it makes them a safer choice to go for, as they create less heat. This means they are less of a fire hazard and are safer for use around children or pets.Need an electrician?Our team offer a range of electrical services across Harpenden, Luton, Caddington, Slip End, East Hyde, Tea Green, Harlington, Toddington, Houghton Regis and Dunstable.
