light knowLEDge – Why you should use LED Lighting

on LED Lighting 101 Uncategorized

Using your favorite lighting fixtures can cost you more than you expect in energy bills. Luckily, LED lighting is a very cost efficient method to light up your home.

Here are some benefits of installing LED fixtures:

  1. Easy Installation: Installing LED fixtures create less of a mess and shorter installation time
  2. Long life span with little to no maintenance: LED lights are estimated to last 15,000-50,000 hours. This will save you time and money instead of replacing and buying new bulbs
  3. Insect repellent: Majority of LED bulbs do not give off ultraviolet light which attracts insects
  4. Energy Efficient: LED bulbs use about 75% less energy than incandescent lighting
  5. Heat: Most light bulbs give off 90% of heat, LEDs emit very little heat
  6. Ultimate Brightness: LEDs are measured in lumens and the higher the number, the brighter the fixture will be

LED Lights are used from traffic lights to commercial retailers and there is no surprise – there are many benefits for using LED. Eurofase offers a wide variety of LED products including chandeliers, wall sconces and pendants.

  1. I was not sure if LEDs were all they were cracked up to be, but they do seem very impressive. I have a light that is in a very hard spot to get too, and I want to get a light that lasts a lot longer than regular bulbs. I think I’ll give LED lights a chance since they can last for 15,000 to 50,000 hours.

  2. I had no idea that led lighting could save that much energy. I like led for the fact that they don’t give off a lot of heat.

  3. I never realized how long LED lights could last and that they were so much more energy efficient. I would love it if they could recreate the incandescent look with the LED efficiency, because that’s really the only thing keeping me from switching.

  4. I had no idea that LED lights don’t attract insects. My wife and I have noticed that every night we leave our porch light on there are a swarm of small gnats flying around it. It doesn’t harm us, but it isn’t pleasant to come home to late at night. I’ll have to talk to her about switching the bulb out for an LED one and see what happens.

  5. I like your point that LED lights have the ultimate brightness, especially if you find lights with lots of lumens. One neat thing I’ve heard about LED lights is that they’re being used in traffic. For example, they light the way of a light rail crossing so that you can see when the light rail is coming.

  6. I think the world has been using LED’s long enough now that it’s pretty much accepted that they are as good as we’re led to believe.

    Whilst there are poorly made LED’s out there that give other LED’s a bad name (as with everything in life), as long as you don’t buy the cheapest of the cheap on eBay, you should be pretty safe in terms of their performance and energy saving ratings.
