Switching To LED Light

To turn a new leaf and commit to living an eco-friendly life can start by switching to led light on your own home. Proven to be energy-efficient, LED lighting is cost efficient as well. Mrs. Candice Lopez, a resident in Singapore who just recently switched to led light shared how it has changed their family’s life for the better, “Some of our environmentally conscious neighbours saw our lighting system when we used to invite them to parties, and most of them recommended that we try led lights instead, especially for areas commonly hidden or are above the ceilings where downlights are appropriate. Our electric bill was chopped down to up to 35 % monthly, and I realized I should have listened to them much sooner. Aside from this, led light is not harsh to look upon and is cool, sight-wise.”

“LEDs have swept the conventional lighting marketplace for a variety of reasons, most notably their extended lifespans, reduced energy consumption and lower maintenance requirements. By 2030, the DOE estimates that LED lighting could save 190 terawatt-hours of electricity per year, which equates to a whopping $15 billion. As the purchase price of lamps and fixtures continues to fall, more and more facility managers are looking to upgrade their lighting systems with LEDs, given their many benefits compared to traditional technologies,” as the featured content of hub.currentbyge.com in an article titled 8 Advantages in LED Lighting wrote.

Daniel T. who wrote the online article Top 10 Benefits of Using LED Lighting shared, “LED lights are free of toxic chemicals. Most conventional fluorescent lighting bulbs contain a multitude of materials like e.g mercury that are dangerous for the environment. LED lights contain no toxic materials and are 100% recyclable, and will help you to reduce your carbon footprint by up to a third. The long operational lifetime span mentioned above means also that one LED light bulb can save material and production of 25 incandescent light bulbs. A big step towards a greener future.”
“Unlike incandescent lighting, LEDs don’t “burn out” or fail, they merely dim over time. Quality LEDs have an expected lifespan of 30,000–50,000 hours or even longer, depending on the quality of the lamp or fixture. A typical incandescent bulb lasts only about 1,000 hours; a comparable compact fluorescent lasts 8,000 to 10,000 hours. With a longer operational life, LEDs can reduce labor costs of replacing bulbs in commercial situations, achieve a lower maintenance lighting system,” further shared by hub.currentbyge.com

While we keep citing how energy efficient and cost saving LED light is, you can also count on other benefits as well, “But energy-efficiency is just part of the story. The other part is time-efficiency: You could go 20 years without having to change an LED light bulb. Solid-state lights like LEDs are more stable light sources than incandescent or fluorescent bulbs, and the difference is startling: A typical incandescent bulb lasts about 750 hours; a Geobulb lasts 30,000 hours,” as Julia Layton wrote in How LED Light Bulbs Work.
