LED lighting is a new concept to our world; however, it has become more popular over the past couple years primarily because of the immense benefits that LED lighting has to offer.
LED lights are durable.
When compared to other lighting options, LED bulbs are much more durable. If you were to drop a conventional light bulb and an LED light bulb, the LED bulb is less likely to break. If it does break, it won’t break in the same way that a traditional bulb will. In addition, they are more durable in the way that they work. Let’s take a parking garage as an example. The vibration from vehicles will echo off the walls, floor and ceiling creating a disturbance in the lighting. However, when LED lighting is used, there is very little to no interruption in the provided lighting.
LED lights are longer lasting.
A traditional light bulb is said to be able to last up to 10,000 hours and a compact fluorescent light can last as long as 30,000 hours. While all that sounds nice, LED lights can actually last up to 50,000 hours.
LED lighting options have greater efficiency and lower temperatures.
Led lights are smaller in size than traditional light bulbs making them the perfect option for smaller spaces that need light. Light is emitted in all directions with compact florescent and conventional bulbs whereas LED lights produce light in a specific direction resulting in LED lighting being incredibly more efficient. Further, LED lights are more efficient due to the fact that conventional light bulbs waste a large amount of their “light” as heat. LED lights stay cool rather than getting too hot to touch, as compact fluorescent and traditional bulbs gives off 80 and 80 percent as heat respectively.
LED lighting has come a long way since it first emerged on the market. LED lights are being used for far more things than just a more energy-efficient, longer-lasting and stronger light bulb in your living room lamp. In fact, LED lighting is very popular in the bathroom and the kitchen as accent lights. Whether you want to use LED lighting to create more radiant light in your home or you are simply looking to help the environment, led lighting is the way to go.
