What are the benefits of having LED lighting indoors?
Unless you’re an electrician or have a keen interest in lighting, you would be forgiven for not knowing what the main differences are between LED lighting, halogen, fluorescent and incandescent lighting. Here are three reasons you should consider switching your indoor lighting to LED lighting.
LED lighting is extremely energy efficient
LED (light-emitting diode) lightbulbs use less energy than all of their counterparts, meaning they are much more energy-efficient. An LED lightbulb can burn for anywhere between 50,000 hours to 100,000 hours, as opposed to an incandescent bulb which is 75 percent less energy-efficient and only burns for approximately 1000-2000 hours. This means the average LED lightbulb can last for years without needing to be replaced!
This means that you can save money in the long run and avoid the hassle of regular trips to the shops to replace bulbs – and for the eco-conscience, cut down on unnecessary landfill too.
LED lighting will cut down your electricity bill
Because LED lighting only uses between 2-17watts of energy, replacing your household lightbulbs with LED lighting ensures that you will save money on your power bill. In addition to the savings on your power bill, LED lights are more energy-efficient, which will ensure you see a longer life span for your bulbs compared to incandescent and halogen light bulbs giving you further savings.
LED lighting can be used in all types of light fitting
The best news is that LED lighting can be used in all different types of light fittings. You can use them in downlights, chandeliers, lamps – you name it, there’s an LED lighting solution for all of your household fittings.
LED lighting can be used in all types of lighting from dimmer lights to desk lamps. It can emit different shades of white, from warm, yellow incandescent lighting, or cool blues that are more like daylight, so you can take your pick from a range of tones to suit your surroundings and cast the right mood.
