The light-emitting diode, better known as “LED,” has rapidly become today’s most energy-efficient lighting technology. They last longer than your average lightbulb, they are more durable and they offer comparable or better light quality than other types of lighting. In fact, residential LED lightbulbs are proven to use at least 75% less energy and last 25 times longer than incandescent lightbulbs.
LEDs are also much safer because they are much cooler than incandescent lights, reducing the risk of combustion or burnt fingers. And speaking of being much cooler, these lightbulbs actually work amazingly well in extremely cold weather, which is something that fluorescent lightbulbs often struggle with.
Who knew that there were so many benefits to just one simple lightbulb? From safety to saving money in your wallet, LED lightbulbs are shaping our electrical future. If your home doesn’t have these energy-saving lightbulbs yet, it may be time to consider making the switch.
