There may be various types of lights available in the market, but nothing comes closer to the durability, efficiency and design benefits offered by LED technology. (LED stands for Light Emitting Diode)
Here are seven primary reasons why you should opt for LED fixtures for your home:
1. You will save money on electric bills.
LED uses only two to ten watts of electricity, a mere 1/3 to 1/30th of that of Incandescent or CFL lights. Generally, the use of LED's for your home can amount to as much as 90% of savings on your total monthly electric bill. Although the bulbs can be a little more expensive to purchase initially, the savings are recouped quickly.
2. It is the closest light that mimics the color of daylight.
Studies have shown that lighting can affect the mood of people. LED lights are your best bet for an instant mood lifter, most especially during cold and gloomy seasons. (Another benefit of white light is its high adaptability to other ordinary lights in any room.)
3. It can last up to 50,000 hours of bulb life.
Use of LED light bulb is also perfect for spaces that are hard-to-reach and requires a light on for prolonged periods of time, like on outdoor spaces or porches.
4. It is the safest type of lighting in the market.
A LED light bulb gives off minimum heat and is considered the safest type of light source because it does not give off dangerous gases nor emit radiation.
5. LED can keep up with power surges.
It does not dim nor flicker, but can be controlled for desired ambient lighting. It also light up quickly, achieving full brightness at a fraction of a second.
6. The bulbs are durable and rattle-resistant.
LED does not have delicate filaments that are prone to breaking.
7. It offers more color choices, and is also the most flexible light type.
Lighting designers consider LEDs as the most flexible lighting source. They can be bent, or retrofitted for various uses. LEDs also offer an array of color choices that are can all be suited for any desired space.
The only downside of choosing LED-based lighting fixture for your home is its high initial price. However, it's very low maintenance cost (combined with its long lifespan and benefits) more than makes up for this.
