LED Lights are a great replacement for incandescent or fluorescent bulbs as they consume much less energy than other light bulbs. LED stands for ‘Light-Emitting Diode,’ a semiconductor device that converts electricity to light through electrons.
Here is what you should know about LED Lights:
• They last about 5 times longer than compact fluorescent or incandescent bulbs.
• They produce nearly no heat or UV rays, which keep costs like air conditioning low.
• LED Bulbs are a great energy saving answer to your home, using up to 80% less energy than compact fluorescent or incandescent bulbs.
• LED Lights are very low maintenance and extremely durable.
Whether it’s indoors or outdoors, LED Lighting is not only environmentally sound but is a great investment – one LED Light that burns for about 8 hrs is expected to last up to 17 years before it needs changing.
More and more we are seeing lighting brands come out with indoor and Outdoor LED Lights.
