Why you should consider using LED's

Because LED’s significantly reduce electricity bills because of lower energy consumption

LED light bulbs do not require much energy to produce light. They produce light in a process called electroluminescence instead of converting electrical energy into heat. Simply put, it changes the state of an electron to cause it glow. This method eradicates, or at least significantly reduces, the quantity of energy wasted when producing light. Also, since the structure and volume is so much less than that of ordinary bulbs, less wattage is needed to produce the same amount of brightness. Up to 90% savings on the lighting portion of your electrical bill is achievable from the moment you change to LED lighting. This why you should make the change as soon as possible.

Lifespan

Compared to other lighting options, LED light bulbs usually last longer from around 25,000 to 50,000 hours depending on temperature and current settings. Some LED light bulbs even take 100,000 hours before complete failure is achieved. This is because LED lighting experience very little wear and tear unlike other lighting sources. They do not have any shortening wicks, burning filaments, or consumable vapours.

Robust

Because there are no moving parts in LED light bulbs , they are more resilient to shocks and vibrations. Additionally, because their structure has gotten rid of the need for glass (and other fragile materials), they are usually more robust and tougher than other bulbs, thereby making it the most durable source of lighting.

Faster switching

When it comes to fluorescent and incandescent bulbs, light is produced as a result of superheating a medium. This is different for LED lighting. The moment electricity flows through the chip, electroluminescence almost immediately happens. This enables LED light bulbs to be turned on and off faster than other sources of light. In fact, it can achieve full brightness in a matter of microseconds.

No side effects

LED lamps do not contain Mercury vapour unlike fluorescent lamps. They are hence safer to throw away and less toxic than normal fluorescent bulbs. In short they are eco friendly.

Less Maintenance

Because other forms of lighting fail after 1000-2000 hours of use and very often much quicker than this, they regularly need changing. LED’s , however last up to 50 times longer , in like for like usage conditions and therefore require changing far less often , meaning that there is less inconvenience in that LED’s rarely require changing.

Safer

Halogen lights run at significantly higher temperatures and have been known to be the source of fires in circumstances where combustible materials such as timber joists are placed in close proximity to them. LED’s however are still relatively cool compared to halogen lights and even after being turned on for many hours can be handled without fear of burning hands and fingers.
