There are numerous options to pick from when it comes to lighting your home — the most prominent of these options being the incandescent, the CFL and LED bulbs. Among these three, the LED bulb is still arguably the best option and everyone should get at least one of these. There are many reasons for this superiority, a few of them are highlighted below:
Long life cycle
If there is one thing you should look out for when looking to purchase a lightbulb, it is longevity. I mean no rational person would want to spend a dime on a bulb that will burn barely a week after acquisition, right? This is the first reason why the LED is the best choice when it comes to lightbulbs.
Unlike incandescent bulbs (that only last for 1,000 hours) or CFL bulbs (that last up to 10,000 hours), LED bulbs actually last beyond at least 25,000 hours. So, in essence, if you’re tired of buying replacement bulbs every 6 months and you need something that will last you for years to come, then you may need to seriously consider switching to LED lighting.
Energy-efficient money saver
Ever wonder why your power bills are so high even when you don’t use heavy “artillery”? Well, it may be due to your lighting option. Light from incandescent bulbs can be all warm and cozy, but what you probably don’t realize, is that it consumes a lot of power as well.
However, when it comes to energy efficiency in lighting choice, the LED bulbs are matchless. Despite the fact that it lasts very long, it is equally very conservative in energy utilization and consumes the least amount of energy per hour of lighting compared to CFL and incandescent bulbs. This, of course, saves you a lot of money.
Another energy saving feature of LED bulbs is that you can actually “dim” the lighting as much as you want, a feature you can’t find in CFL bulbs. As such you’re able to save even more power.
Another very amazing feature of LED lighting is durability – the kind you don’t witness in CFL or incandescent lighting. CFL and Incandescent bulbs are particularly prone to breakage, such that any little mishandling may mean you have to buy a new one. However, LEDs are extremely durable and built with sturdy components that are highly rugged and can withstand even the roughest conditions. Sometimes it can even fall to the ground and would still sustain no damage.
The kind of clear brightness provided by LED lighting is unrivalled. Compared to the brownish light of Incandescent bulbs and the “artificial” blue-gray light of CFLs, the white light of LED bulbs, shines radiantly. It has no detrimental effect on the eyes and it glows so beautifully. In short, this is one option that will actually light up your home.
Light color choices
Variety is the beauty of life! This is the case with LED bulbs as well. It comes in a variety of colours that affords you the luxury of selecting the appropriate one for the specific purpose you may have in mind.
