Are LED lights expensive?

Initially, the upfront cost of an LED light bulb is more expensive than an incandescent, halogen, or fluorescent bulb. In the long run, however, making the switch to LEDs can save you hundreds, if not thousands each year in energy and maintenance costs.

How long do LED bulbs last?

An incandescent lightbulb typically lasts about 750 hours. An energy-efficient LED bulb can last anywhere from 50 000 to 100 000 hours. That’s the equivalent of about 11 years. Not having to change a lightbulb for over a decade is well worth the initial cost of buying them.

How energy efficient are LEDs?

When it comes to incandescent bulbs, about 80% of the energy they use goes to producing heat while only 20% goes towards producing light. With LED bulbs, the opposite is true. 80% of the electricity they use goes towards producing light with 20% going towards producing heat. This means that with an LED bulb you […]

Why should I switch to LED lighting?

There are many benefits to changing the lights in your space over to LEDs. They use far less energy which will save you hundreds of dollars each year on your energy bill. Additionally, LED bulbs last longer than incandescent bulbs meaning you won’t have to replace them as often.

How are LED light bulbs different?

LEDs, or Light Emitting Diodes, generate photons that create heat-free light. Unlike incandescent light bulbs that have a filament that glows producing both heat and light. LEDs can create the same amount of light as an incandescent bulb using far less energy.
