Three Reasons to Switch to LED Light Bulbs

LED light bulbs are brighter, more energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and long lasting than any other light bulb available.

You should consider switching the light bulbs you use in your everyday life to LEDs. By doing so you will save energy (and thus money), you will be helping the environment, and you will have lightbulbs that last much longer. There is a reason you’ve been seeing more LED type bulbs everywhere—in fact there are a number of reasons. Here are just three on why you should switch to LED light bulbs.

Save Energy

Expect to pay less for your energy when you make the switch to LED light bulbs. LED bulbs require less energy because they don’t draw nearly as much electricity as other lights, like halogens, for example. Halogen and fluorescent lights lose a lot of energy to heat. LEDs, on the other hand, only lose five percent of their energy to heat and the rest becomes light. That means you are getting the most bang for your buck, and for less buck than any other light bulb.

Environmentally Friendly

Fluorescent lights contain mercury that is very toxic. LED light bulbs do not. This is good not only for the safety of you and your home, but also for the environment. When you do throw away your LED light bulbs, they won’t raise the potential risk hazards that other light bulbs do. Lower your negative impact on the world by switching to LED light bulbs.

Long Lifespan

Unlike other light bulbs, LEDs do not have a filament that burns or breaks, which means they can run for over 100,000 hours. If you aren’t sure what that translates to, it’s essentially 11 years of usage. That is great for your wallet, but also great for the environment. It means less waste in dead bulbs, which helps keep our planet happy and also means less waste in plastic packaging that light bulbs come in. Other energy efficient light bulbs have made improvements from fluorescents, but nothing compares to LED light bulbs.
