The Benefits of LED Lighting
LED, or light-emitting diode, lights are an increasingly popular choice for homeowners. You’ve probably seen them advertised with other types of lighting, and you probably have some reserved for specialty applications like holiday lights or lamps.
But why are LEDs becoming so commonplace? And are they worth it? Here’s why you should consider upgrading your home lighting to LED.
LED lights are the most energy-efficient on the market. They achieve this because they emit almost no heat. By comparison, the energy used by incandescent light bulbs is almost all heat. This heat, a byproduct of creating light, is waste. By eliminating wasted energy, LED lights cost less to produce the same amount of light.
A lower energy output means less money spent on electricity. When you switch over to LED lighting, you should see some savings in your monthly energy bills.
LED lights are much longer-lasting than incandescent or fluorescent bulbs. In fact, the Department of Energy estimates that LEDs can last up to 30 times longer than incandescents!
LEDs are often knocked or passed over for their higher upfront cost. It’s true that LED bulbs are a bit more expensive, but over time, you actually save money because of how long they last and how little energy they use.
LED lights aren’t just for novelty lamps or holiday string lights. They can be used all around your home to both brighten a room and add accents. They can be used in the kitchen under cabinets, around your desk, alongside mirrors, and much more!
