Did you know that there’s a viable alternative to traditional light bulbs? That’s good because the traditional ones, called halogen bulbs, are expensive to run, can easily overheat, and occasionally even cause house fires.
Replacing your indoor lighting with LED bulbs is usually as simple as buying new bulbs, unscrewing the old ones, and screwing in the new ones in their places. Some sizes or styles of bulbs might be harder to find, but it should be a simple project to replace many of the bulbs in your home with something better.
The Many Benefits of LEDs
Are you not yet convinced that LEDs are the right light bulbs for your house? Here are a few reasons why we recommend them to many of our customers.
They Last Longer
If you feel like you are constantly dragging out your ladder to change light bulbs, then LEDs are a good option for you. They are designed to last many times longer than other types of lightbulbs, including halogens, incandescents, and CFLs.
They Use Energy Efficiently
LEDs will not use as much energy as other types of bulbs. This makes them better for the environment, because they don’t require as much energy for the same amount of light. It also means that they will not burn as hot, which can make them quite a bit safer than any other type of bulb. You can learn more by visiting our Energy Efficient Lighting FAQ page!
They are More Cost-Effective than Other Bulbs
If you just look at a package of LED light bulbs, you might get sticker shock. After all, these bulbs cost more than other types of lighting. However, while the upfront cost may be higher, the overall cost of operating these bulbs is much lower. Because they use less energy AND they last longer, they can be a cost effective lighting option.
They Offer a Different Quality of Light
Many people who do not like the light given off from incandescent bulbs or halogens find LED light easier to deal with. It may feel lighter or brighter and make seeing even easier than similar bulbs of other types do.
