What Are The Advantages Of Switching To LED?

Safety, low heat and energy efficiency are a few of the advantages of LED bulbs.

LED Advantages Over Other Bulbs

The advantages of switching to LED are numerous. Here are just some of the benefits:

  • LEDs use much less electricity than other bulbs 
  • Have extremely long rated lives
  • Produce very little heat
  • Do not emit UV or infrared
  • Contain no mercury, are resistant to shock and vibration 
  • Can operate effectively in extremely cold environments

LEDs are engineered for being extremely long-lasting products. Many LEDs have a rated life of up to 50,000 hours. This is approximately 50 times longer than a standard incandescent, 20-25 times longer than a standard halogen, and 8-10 times longer than a standard CFL.

Used 12 hours a day, a 50,000 bulb will last more than 11 years. Used 8 hours a day, it will last 17 years!
