Benefits That LED Lights Offer
If you are looking for a new way to light your building or space, LED bulbs are one of the best options that you can choose. Not only are they much more energy-efficient, but they also produce a lot more heat when compared with incandescent bulbs, CFLs and metal halides. This comes in really handy during the summer when you’re running your air conditioning. Even though the LED bulbs used to be in a blue tone, they now come in warm white and daylight colors so that you can have just the right color for your home even though you have changed your bulbs. LED lighting also will provide a far superior CRI, so you are able to see the colors of your makeup or artwork much more accurately.
Below are the benefits that LED bulbs offer:
- Longer life than comparable bulbs
- Do not contain mercury, which means they’re safer and cleaner than @other types of bulbs
- Have a very low energy consumption, meaning your electric bill will be lower
- Light quality is comparable to or better than other lighting products
- Give off less heat so that you may not have to run your air conditioning as much in summer
LEDs vs Fluorescents – Which Bulb is Better for Energy Efficiency?
When you are looking for a more efficient bulb, the best bulb you can go with is LED. LEDs are much more efficient than CFLs. LED’s don’t need any warmup and work well during cold weather. They’re also a lot more durable because they’re made from plastic rather than glass. LED bulbs are able to replicate the same exact lighting conditions that fluorescent bulbs provide, but they last longer and they use much less energy. Not only that, all of the LED bulbs are compliant with RoHS and don’t contain mercury, making them much safer and better for the environment.

Things to Consider When Buying LED Lighting
If you are planning to buy LED bulbs, there are a few things you want to consider.
- Color Temperature – This is how your light is going to look. The lower the value a bulb has, the warmer the light it will be. A bulb with a 2700-3000K will have a look that is more of warm light, and the higher temperatures with 5000K will have a harsher light.
- Driver Content – Due to their design, an LED bulb usually won’t run on AC. A lot of LEDs will require a type of driver so that it can convert voltage and take it from AC – DC to operate properly. Most LED lamps that are socket-based will be self-driven. However, you should always make sure before you purchase to ensure that you’re buying the driver and the LED if it isn’t.
- Equivalent Wattage – Even though lumens are the more recent standard, you want to have a guide that you can easily recognize. When you compare LEDs to incandescent bulbs, it’s going to help you have somewhat of an estimate of the way it’s going to light your room. A good ballpark figure when comparing them is ¼ to 1/5 of an incandescent wattage is what you’ll need.
- Lumens – The number of lumens is the measurement of the amount of light is given by the light in total. The average amount of lumens given out by 60-watt incandescent lights is 800 lumens, and this can vary from 50 to 100 lumens higher or lower. This variance will depend on the manufacturer of the bulb and how old the lamp is. An LED bulb is rated directly for their maximum lumens rating, and they will last a lot longer without the bulb dimming.
