If you are like most homeowners, you deal with a dark garage because you have been avoiding the time-consuming task of changing your burnt out light bulbs. What if we told you that you can wrangle that ladder out and change your bulbs for the last time? LED One Distribution put together 5 ways putting LED lights in your garage will benefit you.
LED Lights Last Much Longer
If you leave your lights on in your garage all day, as most homeowners do, then you will find yourself needing to switch out your regular bulbs 3 times every year. That means in 20 years, you will find yourself out in the garage with your ladder doing that annoying task 60 times! If you put LED lights in your garage, chances are high you won’t have to change out your lights again in your lifetime.
In fact, LED lights last so long that many light fixtures come with the bulbs already installed. They are a one piece unit because they last that long! After 20 or 30 years, when you will need to replace the bulbs for the first time, you will probably want to upgrade your fixture anyway.
LED Lights Illuminate the Garage Right Away
Have you ever gotten home and had to sit in your car for a bit, waiting for your lights to turn on all the way? It takes regular CFL’s awhile to warm up but LED lights are ready to go as soon as you hit that switch. Your garage will be bright right away and you won’t have to sit in your car, waiting to see if your garage is safe.
LED Lights Don’t Get As Hot
To add to the annoyance of changing out your bulbs in the garage, if they have been on, you have to turn them off and wait before you can touch them. You don’t have to do this with LED’s. They are much cooler to the touch and you can handle them as soon as you want, even when they are still on! But, since they last so much longer, you probably won’t even need to handle them.
LED Lights Will Save You Money
This is probably a strong motivator for most. Who wouldn’t want to save money? You might be a little hesitant still to switch over to LED’s because of the initial money you will have to pay upfront.
Let’s think about the numbers for a second. Not only will you end up buying 60 regular lights in the time one LED light will last, but LED’s also require 80% less energy to run them. Month after month, you will see a reduction in your energy bill if you switch over all your lights to LED’s.
LED Lights are Virtually Indestructible
Have you ever been up on that ladder in the garage switching out your bulbs when you accidentally drop one? Now, on top of having to do the task you already hate, you have to go get the broom to sweep up the shattered bulb. If that was an LED light with shatterproof glass, all you would have to do is climb down to get it. They also don’t have those fragile elements so if it does get banged around, it will still work.
