For years we thought that the light bulb couldn’t get any better and then the light-emitting diode bulb (LED) was created. Now consumers have a lot more light bulbs to choose from and this gives them a greater choice when it comes to how they create a look or mood in a room to how much energy they can potentially save.
There are of course reasons why people prefer incandescent bulbs over LEDs and vice versa. For instance, until recently the LED bulb wasn’t able to replicate the brightness or the yellowish light that we have all become accustomed to having in our homes and this meant that a lot of people stuck with traditional lighting options. But on the other hand, LEDs provide numerous benefits over incandescents, especially in regards to energy efficiency and the potential light colors that can be created.
In fact, LEDs are a lot more versatile than older bulbs, their construction as a whole is a lot more durable and this not only makes them safer but they can also be made very small and this allows them to be used in more applications. This also means they offer us a great deal of versatility when it comes to how we light our homes. If you were thinking of a way of jazzing up your kitchen cabinets then LED lighting strips can provide a really cool and easy-to-install solution.
LED bulbs are also time-efficient in that once you begin using them you won’t have to replace them anywhere near as frequently as traditional bulbs. It has been reported that you could go 20 years without having to change an LED bulb. That is because they are a more stable light source than your typical bulb that tends to last around 750 hours, whereas some LEDs can last up to 50,000 hours.
We haven’t even mentioned how beneficial the energy-efficient LED bulbs are to not only your wallets but also to the environment as a whole. A 2007 study found that if half of all the incandescent Christmas lights were replaced with LEDs then this would save the U.S. (alone) around $17 billion dollars a year in energy costs! It’s crazy to consider that this is such a simple idea to introduce and yet it can save us so much money and energy.
If everyone was aware that LED lighting uses a lot less electricity and causes a lot less waste and damage to the environment than the traditional incandescent light bulb, then the world would be a lot more efficient and we would all save a lot more money and create a lot less waste. Of course, LEDs are becoming more and more popular, it is their prices that seem to be a sticking point for a lot of people who would rather part with a £1 or 2 rather than say £8, but they aren’t thinking about the additional cost to their annual electricity bill. All this is likely to change as awareness increases and LED lighting prices to drop.
