In an ideal world selecting a new light fixture would be as easy as 1, 2, shopping montage. However the reality of unscripted life imposes on us many unexpected burdens and technicalities, making choosing a new light more difficult than making an aesthetic choice. The Wattage, colour temperature, and light source all play important roles in the overall effectiveness of a fixture, and whether or not it’s the right choice for you.
LED (Light-Emitting Diode) lights are rapidly becoming the most popular bulbs on the market, but are they right for you? Here’s 4 reasons why we think they are the best choice for your home:
1. They last longer
LED lights have an incredibly long life, and can last up to 50,000 hours. To put it in perspective, a regular 50 Watt halogen bulb lasts about 1,000 - 2,000 hours.
2. They save you money
Using LED lights in your home rather than halogen bulbs can save you up to 75% on your monthly electricity bill, because LEDs use less energy, and are much more efficient. They also don’t heat up like halogens, and therefore won’t raise the temperature of your home, thus saving more money on cooling.
3. They're safer
LED lights do not contain the harmful materials halogen bulbs do, and do not release high-power discharge or UV, which can be harmful to the epidermis and eyes, making them much safer for you and your family. They are also much better for the environment.
4. They're more effective
Unlike their halogen ancestors, LED lights do not flicker, and have dimming capability, making them practical for any space.
