There are so many features and benefits of LED lighting, it’s hard to know where to start.
As we said, the biggest advantage of installing these small, solid bulbs is the fact that they are extremely energy efficient when compared with incandescent, fluorescent and neon lights.
Using just a tenth of the energy of normal lights, and providing strong focused light so there’s less “spillage”, you can expect your power bill to be drastically reduced.
For a very long time too, if you choose quality LED lighting.
You see another advantage of when you install LED lighting. A longer life span…60,000 hours as opposed to the 1,500 hours you get from incandescent bulbs to be specific.
That’s over 130 times longer, and even compared to compact fluoros, they last at least ten times longer.
Durability is yet another factor.
A solid state LED features a small chip embedded in an epoxy resin housing, and unlike conventional bulbs – either incandescent or fluorescent – they have no fragile elements such as glass or filaments than can be damaged.
They can also stand up to vibration and shock, and can work in extreme temperatures.
