- LED lights are often smaller and use less energy and produce less heat compared to other lighting sources.
- LED lights are mercury-free.
- LED lights are tailored to the preference of the user (warm at 2700K or cool at 5000K).
- LED bulbs are mechanically stronger compared to the fragile components of other lighting sources.
- LED bulbs have no tubes to break and their internal parts are rigidly supported making them resistant to vibration and impact.
- LED sources are compact, allowing flexibility in designing lighting fixtures and improved control over the distribution of light with small reflectors or lenses.
- LED bulbs have longer life spans due to the instant on and off operation compared to Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) where life spans are reduced by cycle degradation.
- LED bulbs use 75% to 80% LESS energy and last up to 25 times longer than traditional incandescent lamps.
- LED bulbs work well indoors and outdoors because of their durability and performance in cold environments.
- LED bulbs are an eco-friendly choice and do not require special handling or disposal.
- The average household dedicates about 30% of its energy budget for lighting. Switching to energy-efficient lighting is one of the fastest ways to cut your energy bill.
- Motion sensors will increase your savings by reducing the amount of operation time.
