Are you thinking about doing some improvements to your home? If you are then it is worth thinking about making some changes to the lights in it. If you were to replace your current lights with fittings that are able to take an LED light bulb rather than stick with what you have at present.
As well as being energy saving they will help to get your annual electricity bills down. Plus of course you will find that they look far better than more conventional forms of lighting for the home do.
Of course these aren’t the only reasons why you should be looking to replace your current lights with LED ones.
Below we take a look at some of the other important reasons why so many people today are choosing to have LED light bulbs in their homes.
Reason 1 – These lights are very efficient and in some cases have been able to exhibit an efficiency rate of nearly 80%. As these lights don’t produce the kind of heat that traditional light bulbs do they of course don’t need to use as much power to heat them for the light they produce to then be emitted. Of course in terms of energy efficiency these light bulbs are clearly the best ones to get installed in your home today.
Reason 2 – You can expect these forms of bulbs to last much longer than traditional ones. If use properly then in some cases an LED light bulb has the ability to produce around 100,000 hours of illumination. This translates to them being able to provide you with continuous illumination without any real problems for around 11 years. Whereas the light bulbs you have in your home at present will often need to be replaced in around a ¼ of this time. So of course as a result you will end up saving quite a bit of money because these light bulbs won’t need as much maintenance and won’t need to be replaced as frequently.
Reason 3 – At the present time you will find that around a ¼ of what you pay for your electricity bill is to help power lights within your home. However by installing even one or two LED light bulbs can help to reduce your electricity bills on an annual basis quite a bit. In some cases households have found that replacing their conventional lights with LED one’s has ended up reducing their annual electricity bill by as much as 30%.
Reason 4 – These types of lights are much safer than the ones you have in your home at present as they contain no harmful materials like mercury. Plus these types of lights do not emit any UV rays into the atmosphere around you which can be detrimental to one’s health.
Reason 5 – As these lights use less electricity to power them it makes them much more environmentally friendly. Plus of course an LED light bulb doesn’t generate the levels of heat that conventional light bulbs do and so you are actually helping to reduce the world’s carbon footprint and helping to wage war against global warming
