You will have seen LED lighting being installed in kitchens, workplaces, streets, walkways and even cars. LED lighting invariably different from traditional lights such as incandescent, fluorescent, and halogen lighting.

LED lighting lasts longer

One of the most significant and important sellers of LED lighting is their considerable lifespan. On average, an LED light will clock up between 60,000 and 100,000 hours of operational time. That’s almost 40 times longer than the traditional incandescent lightbulb which probably exists in your house! This means you’ll save money on the replacement and repair of older light fixings as well as saving you valuable time messing around with a broken bulb every other month.

It comes in different sizes

LED lighting is generally, very small. Their size makes them a versatile light source if used on tricky and complicated projects. They can be used individually in more complex setups or bunched together to form a bolder and brighter light source in your home or office. If you’re looking for very bespoke lighting set up in your home or workplace, LED lighting could be the creative solution to meet your needs.

They save you money

LED lighting is far less energy hungry than its other lighting counterparts such as incandescent lighting. If you make an investment in LED lighting, you’ll be instantly saving on your energy bill. As a relatively new technology, LED lighting will cost a little bit more up front than other traditional lights. However, over time you will make savings on a decrease in energy consumption and the longevity of LED lighting. With a lifespan of around 25 years, you’ll save money by not having to replace your incandescent lights that could break 5-10 times by the time your LED lights start to fail.

Better for the environment

The production and use of LED lighting can have a more positive environmental impact than incandescent lighting. The lifespan of LED lighting means a lower demand for production and less need for recycling which as we know, has a huge strain on the environment. Carbon dioxide emissions from LED lighting are also considerably low. By using one LED bulb, you can potentially reduce greenhouse gas emissions by half a tonne.
