There are so many benefits of LED lighting that it is almost crazy to not consider making the changeover from incandescent light bulbs to LED in your household.

Benefits of LED Lighting in your Home

Their insane longevity actually saves you money and the fact that they are much safer than the standard light bulb makes LED bulbs Lightco’s top lighting choice. Here are 5 of the many benefits you enjoy when using LED lighting in your home:

1. Efficiency

LED lights are powerfully packed with a life that uses up to 90% less power than incandescent light bulbs. LED lights are semiconductors that convert electricity into light. Another great thing about their efficiency is that LEDs operate at lower temperatures than other incandescent bulbs that are available on the market, because LED operates at lower temperatures they last comparatively longer. This is efficient as you will not need to constantly change light bulbs around the home.

2. Longevity

The long lifetime of LEDs will drastically reduce maintenance costs and lower long-term operating costs compared to traditional fluorescent lights because of their lower operating temperatures. LEDs have a lifespan of up to 60,000 hours as opposed to 1,500 hours typical of incandescent bulbs, this results in saving time and money. Unlike traditional fluorescent bulbs, LED lights don’t fail or burn out, they start to dim slowly.

3. Durability

LEDs are solid express lighting devices that utilize semiconductor material rather than a filament or neon gas which can often “pop” or burn out. Unlike traditional bulbs that are encased in glass that are prone to breakage, LEDs are breakage resistant and largely immune to vibrations and other impacts. This is because they consist of a tiny chip exemplified in an epoxy plant enclosure and mounted on a circuit board, this makes them sturdier than traditional light bulbs.

4. Safety

Safety is another advantage of using LED light bulbs, because they operate using cooler temperatures the risk of getting burnt when touching the bulb. The reason is due to LEDs producing 3.4 btu’s/hour compared to 85 for traditional incandescent bulbs which can cause burns when touched. This minimises the risk of fire and burns.

5. Environmental Friendliness

LED are eco-friendly, as they are made from non-toxic materials, they contain no gas filaments or mercury, which are harmful to the environment. This means they are recyclable and prevent contamination from noxious chemicals. Due to their longevity they reduce energy consumption and lower carbon emissions, which make them environmentally friendly. Their long-life results in frequent replacements which means less bulbs are used and that lowers the cost of resources used in packaging.
