LED Lighting IS All It's Cracked Up To Be.
Updated: Oct 11, 2019
Light-emitting diodes, or LED for short. They are everywhere these days, and for good reason. Very low maintenance, cost effective and so efficient it's crazy. Transitioning from traditional incandescent or CFL bulbs and fixtures just makes sense.
Here's a quick rundown of the why and how LED lighting could work for you:
What makes LED Lighting So Great?
There are three particular qualities that have brought LEDs front and center.
1. LEDs don't really burn out.
LEDs will experience "lumen depreciation" where the brightness dims over over time. It will be YEARS before you need to change them out if your devices are working correctly.
2. LEDs have better thermal management.
By displacing heat more effectively, LEDs last longer at their full brightness and don't overheat.
3. LEDs are lowering overall energy usage, which is good for everyone!
Conserving energy is more important than ever. The gradual to mainstream use of LED lighting has made a BIG impact. "The adoption of LED bulbs brought electricity use for lighting down by 26% from 2015 to 2017. The change meant raw consumption dropped from 129.7 million megawatt-hours a year to 95.5 million megawatt-hours." - Rashaan Ayesh for Axios.com
