Should I Be Using LED Lights?

Your indoor and outdoor lighting systems should be designed to meet your specific user preferences. Because of this, nobody can really tell you exactly what kind of lighting system will work best in or around your home. What the professional electricians on the G & S Heating Cooling & Electric team can tell you, though, is that LED lighting is certainly worth your attention. LED lightbulbs have much to offer homeowners, as we’ll discuss further below. Read on to learn more about the many benefits of LED lighting, and remember that we are here to handle any electrical services that you may require.

What Are LED Lights?

LED stands for light emitting diode. Any given LED light bulb will group together many of these diodes, as they are quite small. LEDs are very directional in their nature, which is why they are also so commonly used in flashlights these days. Because of the directional way in which they cast light, they do not rely upon reflective materials and other tricks that incandescent or CFL bulbs may. The directional manner in which they throw light also makes them ideal for applications such as recessed or track lighting.

Benefits of LED Lights

In addition to the way in which they cast light, LED light bulbs can benefit you in many ways. They are certainly far more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs, using up to 75% less energy in their operation. They will also typically last up to 25x longer than incandescent bulbs. This means that, while LED light bulbs are certainly more expensive than others, they also need to be replaced far less frequently. This can help you to save more money over time, and makes them more convenient. Plus, they give off much less heat than other bulbs, which helps to make them a very safe lighting option.
