Light-emitting diode or LED lights are quickly becoming one of the most popular light bulbs in the world. Although initially seen as an awkward or sub-par alternative to traditional bulbs, the environmentally friendly lights are now hailed for their excellent quality and long lifetime. LeVeck Lighting Products & Maintenance has been providing businesses and residents of Tipp City, OH, with lighting solutions since 1977. They are also a leading authority on green energy systems, including the use of LED lights.
Read on below to learn why LEDs are worth the switch:
- Energy Efficiency: LED bulbs last up to 25 times longer than traditional light bulbs while using 75% less energy. It is estimated that if the use of LED bulbs became widespread over the next decade, the energy savings would be equivalent to the output of 44 large electrical power plants.
- Cost Efficiency: Because each LED light uses only a quarter of the energy of its fluorescent counterpart, you can expect a similar decrease in your monthly electric bill. Additionally, LEDs have a much longer lifespan than fluorescent bulbs—up to 100,000 hours. This means that you will be spending money on new bulbs far less often.
- Environmentally Friendly: If you are interested in making your home or business more green, you should be using LED bulbs. In addition to helping you decrease your carbon footprint by minimizing the amount of energy you use overall, LED bulbs are also free of some of the toxic chemicals—such as mercury—that are found in fluorescent lights. Additionally, LED bulbs are 100% recyclable, and because they last so long, you’ll greatly limit your waste production.
- No Heat Or UV Emissions: LED bulbs release little to no heat or UV emissions. This makes them beneficial to place around objects with light and heat sensitivities such as in craft stores or art galleries.
