Everyone is talking about LED lights right now. In fact, you can’t even walk down the Christmas aisle at Target without seeing hundreds of LED lights. If you are wondering if you should make the switch, LED One Distribution is here to convince you of the benefits of installing LED lights.
Save Money by Switching to LED Lights
Not only are there many programs out there that provide a rebate to cover the cost of upgrading to LED lights, but over the lifespan of your lights, you are expected to save about 80% on your energy bills. LED bulbs also last much longer, about 13 years to be exact, than regular incandescent bulbs. This means that in the lifespan of one LED light, you will have to purchase 14 regular bulbs to last the same amount of time.
LED bulbs are much more durable than regular bulbs. If dropped, an incandescent bulb will shatter or its fragile filament will break. This means that you won’t be spending money to replace bulbs that get dropped.
LED’s Are Better for the Environment
LED lights are recyclable and because of their much longer lifespans and huge decrease in energy needs, they lower their carbon footprint by reducing overall needs on power plants. LED lights also do not contain mercury, which can leach into the soil and streams, wreaking havoc on the natural ecosystems.
LED Bulbs Are Versatile and Can Go Anywhere
The diode that makes up an LED light is so tiny that you can actually wear them on your eyelashes. You can wear earrings that light up thanks to the power of LED or have an entire wall of light up wallpaper. LED lights also come in a wide variety of colors, further extending your possibilities with LED.
Because of their low energy needs, you can place them where there is no access to power and have them run off batteries. You can bring light to an outhouse on the side of the road or make the wreath on your front door more festive with a strand of battery powered, glowing lights.
LED Bulbs Don’t Emit Heat
If you have ever been stuck in your house on a hot day with no ac, you know how every degree counts. A house full of traditional lights can add to your home temperature by a few degrees. LED bulbs do not give off any heat while running and will not increase the temperature of your home.
LED Bulbs Work In Subzero Temperatures
Traditional light bulbs stop working at around 0 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit. LED bulbs continue working no matter how cold it gets. If you live in a cold climate or near the arctic circle where it regularly gets to 40 below, LED bulbs are the way to go.
LED Lights Are Good for Your Health
We all know that the sun emits UV rays, which can wreak havoc on your skin. But, did you know that light bulbs also produce UV rays? LED bulbs are an exception to this, as well as having no other shown harmful emissions.
There are also beneficial health effects of LED lights. Red light therapy has been used to rejuvenate the skin. Green light therapy has been used to treat pain, inflammation, and migraine headaches.
There’s No Reason Not to Switch
With all the compelling evidence, it seems like there’s not a good reason to not switch over your traditional lights. Save money and your health. LED One Distribution is here when you are ready to install LED lights.
