As we are sailing through the 21st century, we look to become more effective and efficient in life and technology. As laptops have replaced typewriters and tablets are replacing textbooks, similarly LED lighting technology is replacing the traditional methods of lighting.

For many years, LEDs were a very costly alternative to fluorescent bulbs and were far from perfect. But, now with improved technology, LEDs have become smarter and much more affordable as well.

Read What is an LED and How it Works

In today’s world, LEDs are the most energy efficient option that you have when it comes to lighting. Plus, they offer other benefits as well.

Let’s get to know more about the benefits that they have to offer:

Here are Some Benefits of LED Lights

i) Prolonged Lifetime

A LED bulb has a long-life, especially when compared to traditional bulbs and even the more recent DFL bulbs. LEDs are good for around 50,000 hours, making them a great option for all kind of consumers.

You will not have to replace your LED lights for at least 5 years straight, saving you replacement costs. Moreover, many sellers ever offer up to 5-year warranty, which safeguards you against faults.


ii) Suitable for All Kind of Consumers

Everyone can use LED lights. They are not only perfect for homes and offices, but for outdoors as well.

In fact, government organizations can also use LED lights to light up streets. They can opt for solar led street light that run on solar energy and hence are more affordable.

Moreover, LED lights can withstand all kind of temperatures and are even waterproof.

iii) More Efficient

LED lights are very efficient and only cost 20% of the energy. This is very impressive when compared to other options.

This is also the main reason why they are affordable. Since more energy is utilized in producing light, the energy bill is less due to little wastage.

Reports have indicated how LEDs help you save around 70% of energy compared to other alternatives.

iv) Less Heat 

As the LEDs consume almost 80% to 90% of the energy, only the remaining 20% is converted and wasted in the form of heat. They brighten the room without affecting the temperature.

v) No UV emissions

LED lights produce no UV light, making them suitable for even museums and art galleries where sensitive objects are kept that may get affected due to strong light.

vi) Environmentally Friendly 

LED lights are environmentally friendly and very safe to use. They contain no harmful objects and also do not break easily as they come covered.

This makes them a great substitute to the likes of CLFs that contain mercury which is bad for the human health.

vii) More Brightness

The overall performance of LEDs is far superior to traditional light bulbs, with a 10W LED bulb producing around 850 lumens; a 13W CFL bulb would be required to produce near 800 lumens.

LEDs are presently the latest and most exciting technological advancement in lighting industry. They clearly offer great benefits, and if you haven’t already moved to LED lights then it is time to make the move.
