The next big thing in electrical lighting since the electric bulb. LED lights have the ability to shine for over 20 years and use a mere fraction of the energy of incandescent bulbs, they are the sustainable choice for lighting your home.
LED stands for ‘Light Emitting Diode’, a semiconductor device that converts electricity into light efficiently and cost effectively.
LED light uses 85% less energy than halogen or incandescent lighting, and about 30% less energy than CFL lights, saving you money on your power bill.
No more waiting for your standard energy efficient bulbs to reach full brightness, with LED lights you have more than double the energy efficiency without the brightness lag. LED’s are also dimmable, giving you the flexible control over your lighting.
LEDs contain no mercury or lead which are common in other lighting sources and also emit no UV rays or infrared radiation making them a safer choice for you home. They also operate at a much cooler temperature when compared to halogen bulbs.
Meaning your reducing that carbon footprint of yours by consuming less energy and sending less expended bulbs to the landfills.
Look at the difference in lifespan…
Although LED lights are more expensive to purchase initially you will soon recoup those costs by saving on your power bill, and you won’t have to replace the bulbs nearly as often, making them a lot more cost effective in the long term.
LED lighting isn’t simply an eco-friendly solution, it is also the best lighting to make your house aesthetically interesting. The single-direction lighting helps to highlight key areas making them perfect for under-cabinet and under-counter lighting in your kitchen or bathroom. LED light fittings come in the same sizes as older Halogen fittings so replacing them is a very simple task, no need to wait until you are doing a big renovation, get them switched over straight away without worrying about holes and gaps that would otherwise need to be filled.
