What are the Benefits of LED Lighting?

Learning about the Benefits and Advantages of LED Lighting

Three light blubsWhen new technologies are developed, products become more efficient and versatile. This is definitely the case with LED lighting; LED, or light-emitting diode, refers to a product that produces light about 90% more efficiently than incandescent light bulbs.

While incandescent light bulbs are inexpensive, they use a lot of energy and don’t last very long. LED lighting offers a sustainable and much more efficient alternative. As demand has increased and manufacturing costs have declined, LED lighting prices have decreased, making the technologically advanced bulbs both affordable and eco-friendly.

With LEDs, an electrical current passes through a microchip, illuminating the tiny LED light sources.  The heat generated is absorbed into a heat sink, so the lights last a long time and gradually lessen the light output instead of failing completely.
