In every home, lighting accounts for 8-15% of the electricity bills. This may not seem like a huge amount. But opting for more energy-efficient lighting solutions can make a difference in the amount you spend on utilities each month. One of the simplest ways to do this is to replace all the standard bulbs throughout your house, with Light Emitting Diodes. There are a number of benefits to switching to LEDs such as:
LED bulbs are 80% more energy-efficient than standard bulbs. If you switch out all the CFLs in your home to modern LEDs, it can have a positive impact on energy usage in your home.
LED bulbs are known to last over 2-3 times longer than traditional ones. The upfront cost of these bulbs used to be quite high when they were first introduced into the market. However, over the past few years, there has been a marked dip in LED pricing, making them a viable option for many. Although these bulbs are slightly more expensive than traditional ones, you save a considerable amount of money in the long term. The benefits easily outweigh the slightly higher initial costs.
The new and latest LED bulbs produce sufficient light and can also be used as spotlights. There was a time when LED bulbs produced a very low and dull light, however that is no longer the case. In areas where you need more illumination, you can opt for LEDs of higher lumens.
CLF bulbs lag a bit before they start and take a while to reach their full brightness levels. This isn’t the case with LED bulbs, which turn on instantly to full brightness, as soon as they are switched on.
This type of light can be used in any setting and a range of applications such as:
Light emitting diodes emit very little heat, compared to traditional bulbs. LEDs use up most of their energy to produce light, while halogen lights waste energy on heat rather than light. This makes a considerable difference to the indoor temperatures in your house, especially if you have a large number of lighting fixtures. The lower heat levels of LEDs reduces the stress on your HVAC system, which in turn reduces your electricity bills.
Since LEDs don’t heat up like standard bulbs, they are a safer option in homes with children or pets. Installing LEDs in outdoor spaces will not damage or affect your plants either. This makes them a safe option for indoor as well as outdoor settings.
It’s relatively easy to switch from common CFLs to LEDs. Some things to keep in view are:
