LED lighting can actually be up to 80% more efficient than normal lighting, meaning that nowhere near as much energy is wasted and instead the energy is used more positively and powerfully. This is great for a number of reasons, but one of the main ones being that they don’t consume anywhere near as much power as standard lights. Furthermore, none of these things even have to take an impact on the quality or power of the lighting, but instead the quality of lighting and colour rendering index (CRI) is often better.
We believe that LED is a fantastic, energy efficient alternative to the traditional lighting we often go for, and we wanted to share with you a few reasons why it’s such a great change to make.
Consumes less power
One of the best things about LED lights is that they consume up to 90% less power than normal and more common types of lighting. This makes them extremely efficient and much better for the environment. Most lightbulbs transmit the majority of energy into heat before producing light, however LED lights are designed differently so that this is not the case. Instead, nearly all of the power is used solely to create light so there is no wasted energy.
It’s more cost effective for you
LED lights are a far more cost effective option, and this is because they use less electricity, and due to the way the energy is transmitted, they last for longer. When you take into consideration the average cost of your monthly energy bill, and how much of this covers usage of lighting, a more cost effective solution could really make quite a difference. The combination of the lighting wasting less energy and being more efficient, and it not having to be replaced as often, makes it a much better cost effective solution to lighting.
Lower heat emission
Due to the less power used in LED lighting, this also lowers the heat emission that comes from the light. Of course, this is much safer for you and your home, which is another great reason why LED lights are a better option to go for. This will reduce risk of any danger in your home and means that the energy and power is actually being used efficiently, as opposed to other types of lighting where quite a high percentage of the energy actually generates heat.
Quite often, LED lights will last twice as long as other types of lighting, as they are not absorbing as much power. The longer your lights last, the less frequently you will have to get them replaced, which is ideal for keeping down costs as well as making the inconvenience of buying and fitting new ones less often.
