Our team at Volt-Tech Electric Company wants to help you make your home or business the best it can be, and one way we can do that is by helping you upgrade your existing lighting to LED options. In this article, we will go over some of the benefits of LED lighting.
- Energy Efficiency- The first benefit of LED lighting is that is much more energy-efficient than other lighting options. Not only do LEDs take very little energy to run, especially compared to incandescent bulbs, but they also produce more light and less heat, which makes for a much better option all around.
- Longevity- Another benefit of LED lighting is that LED lights last longer than incandescent bulbs or compact fluorescent ones. The average lifespan of an incandescent bulb is around 1,000 hours, while that of an LED light is a staggering 50,000 hours. Not only will you be enjoying energy savings in the operation of these lights, but you will also see savings when it comes to replacing them, as you will have to do it far less often than with any other type of light.
- Design Flexibility- A third benefit of LED lighting is that it offers greater flexibility in design. Individual LEDs are tiny, with the largest ones being smaller than pencil erasers, which means they can be configured in any number of ways. Rather than just sticking LED units into your existing light fixtures, you can get creative and place them anywhere you need the extra light.
