LED lights are rapidly growing in popularity and rightly so! They are an excellent option for any space.
Not only do they look great and produce amazing light, but they can actually save you money, and increase the value of your home. On top of that, by choosing LEDs, you can do your part for the environment as they are a sustainable lighting option.
Let’s have a look at these benefits in greater detail.
Why LED Lights?
LEDs Look Great
LED lights create consistent, attractive illumination for any area in your home or workplace. You can use them to light a whole room, or for efficient directional lighting.
There are a number of different options that provide a warm glow, or cooler options for more intense light. Unlike their halogen counterparts, LEDs provide instant light as soon as you flick the switch. They also do not dim over time or flicker while they are in operation.
LED lights provide a clean, attractive and modern lighting option that suit any style of decor.
LEDs Save You Money
LEDs provide significant cost-saving opportunities. That means they can pay for themselves over time. While the initial outlay is more than a standard halogen light, LED lights can last for up to 20 years! That means no costly bulb replacements every year or so.
Incandescent lights waste a lot of energy because they produce a large amount of radiant heat. In fact, around 80% of the electricity they use goes into heat. That means only 20% is dedicated to actual lighting. When you switch to LEDs you will notice a significant reduction in your power costs. That is because LEDs produce almost no heat at all. 80-90% of all electricity used by LEDs goes directly into producing light.
So, not only does it save you money, but it increases the safety at your home as well. There have been many reported cases of halogen light fittings overheating and catching fire.
If you are going to switch to LED, we recommend that you replace the whole downlight fitting, not just the bulb. Simply replacing the bulb with an LED or CFL-bulb is not a good idea. LEDs and CFLs shouldn’t be used in closed fittings as they need good ventilation to ensure their long life. If they get too hot, they are likely to fail early.
LEDs Increase The Value Of Your Home
There are two things that instantly increase the value of any home. They are aesthetic appeal and energy efficiency. An LED light installation by our Master Electricians will achieve both. Not only will you be saving money on power bills, but you will also simultaneously be increasing the resale value of your property.
Energy efficiency is not only about saving money. It also allows your home to become more sustainable. LEDs use less power than traditional incandescent light bulbs, which means less drain on electricity-creating resources.
With all these positive benefits, the choice to switch to LEDs is an easy one!
