Today more and more consumers are realizing that LEDs (also known as light-emitting diodes) provide superior indoor lighting solutions. The so-called conventional light bulbs that were once widely used are rapidly becoming a thing of the past, with more businesses and households switching over to LED light bulbs
The Many Benefits of LEDs
The reasons that so many are making the switch to LED for their indoor lighting include:
- LEDs Provide Energy Savings: First, by going with LED bulbs over other types, consumers save money. The more efficiently a bulb operates, the less it costs the consumer in energy expenses.While a single bulb of just about any type costs very little, consider how many bulbs a typical house or even a large industrial facility requires to properly light every hallway, room, and bathroom. These costs can add up rather quickly, particularly when long-term use is considered.
- LEDs Last Longer: While quality LED lights may initially seem expensive next to their conventional counterparts, that price tag is not telling the whole story. Not only do quality LED lights last far longer than incandescent or fluorescent bulbs, they require much less power to operate.In addition, as LED lightbulbs have become available in just about every hardware store in the U.S., they’ve also gone down in price rather significantly. It wasn’t long ago that a single LED bulb was far beyond the reach of the everyday consumer’s lighting budgets. Due to them previously being cost-prohibitive, many don’t realize that they are now more than affordable than ever.
- LEDs Offer Quality Illumination and Improved Safety: While LEDs are about the size of a speck of pepper, today’s quality LED lights produce outsized illumination. And although older models had a delay period before illumination occurred, today’s LED lights light up immediately. They’re also extremely flexible: LED technology has advanced to the point where LED lights can be used in just about every application, from consumer to industrial indoor lighting.LED lights are also much safer than warmer-burning lights. For example, consider LED Christmas lights: LEDs are far cooler burning than their incandescent and CFL counterparts and, because LED lights are constructed from epoxy lenses rather than glass, they are also much more resistant to breakage. In addition, because of their lower energy use requirements, they are also far less likely to overload a wall socket.
- LEDs are Directional: Another benefit of using LEDs is that they produce light in a specific direction. For many indoor lighting applications, such as task lighting and recessed down lights, this is a big benefit. In situations where directional lighting is desired, this means greater efficiency without the need for diffusers or reflectors that can cause light to get trapped.
What Types of Indoor Lighting are Available?
There’s no argument that switching to LEDs comes with a host of benefits. But how can they be used? The answer is simple: today’s quality LED lights can tackle just about any lighting job out there with little more than the right setup and a vision.
For example, LED lights are perfect in the kitchen, without adding unnecessary heat. With cool-burning LED lights installed, kitchens can easily become more appealing than ever before. Consider using LEDs for recessed ceiling lights, under glass countertops, to accent floating shelves, for toe kicks to produce beautiful nighttime lighting, for classic under-cabinet lighting, or just about any other indoor lighting need that can be imagined. When it comes to lighting, it’s difficult to beat the quality, efficiency, and flexibility that today’s LED lights offer consumers.
