Along with smart lighting, LED lighting has proven to be one of the most successful segments of the lighting industry. However, LED lighting is more than just a trend. These products are showing up more and more in lighting supply showrooms. It’s only natural to wonder if these lights are a good choice for your home or business. Here are several benefits to choosing this type of lighting.

Lifespan: Let’s face it, replacing light bulbs can be a pain. That’s why so many consumers loved compact fluorescent lights (CFL), those twisty bulbs that promised to last for years. But LED lights will last even longer. Consider this: An old fashioned incandescent bulb will last from 750 to 2000 hours. A CFL will last from 8000 to 10,000 hours. An LED bulb will burn anywhere from 35,000 to 50,000 hours. That’s a huge savings in both time and money.

Efficiency: LED bulbs aren’t wasteful—in more ways than one. First, you’ll notice that these bulbs give off more direct light than current bulbs you’re using. There’s less light given off where you don’t need it. That’ll help you see better and save money. That brings us to the other type of efficiency you’ll get with LEDs. Since they give off less heat, they use less energy. Lower energy usage means lower power bills for you.

Size: LEDs can be very small. This allows them to be used in tinier spaces. But this doesn’t mean you have to settle for less light. If one bulb isn’t enough, they can be used in groupings for more light.
