Save energy with LED lighting!

The incandescent light bulb – the one we all know – is slowly being replaced by new technology. A typical light bulb uses electricity to heat a filament wire to a high temperature to produce a glow. It is highly effective but at the same time how often do you change a bulb in a well-used room in an average year? Let’s face it, incandescent bulbs are not made to last.

There has been an effort to reduce or eliminate these old style bulbs recently, most notably in favor of compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) that are longer lasting and use less energy. Consumer reaction to these bulbs has been very positive, but now there’s an even more energy efficient lighting option that is generating tremendous interest. Solid-state lighting (SSL), which uses semiconductor Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) as sources of illumination has arrived on the scene, and make no mistake – it’s here to stay!

Energy efficient led lights are quickly becoming a new standard in lighting technology. You’ve probably already seen flashlights and garden lights that use LEDs to produce a bright and strong light. Now these lights are being produced for home lighting and have many advantages over old style light bulbs. Saving energy is the hallmark of Energy efficient led lighting. It costs a fraction of what it takes to power a standard bulb and the light produced is a result of higher efficiency. You actually get the same amount of light with less electricity used. There are a variety of styles now on the market for different applications around the home.

Bulb replacements for lamp fixtures with a screw-on base are now available and they last around 25 times longer than a normal household 60-watt bulb. That means you’re saving money on both your electricity bill and the cost of bulb replacement. There are other advantages to LED lighting. For example, LED lighting is solid state, meaning it is more resistant to shocks and vibrations as compared to conventional light bulbs.

The energy savings available with Energy efficient led light is a quickly being noticed and some cities are even starting to experiment with LED powered street lights as a way to reduce power consumption. A change in the way you light your house could provide you with long-term power savings.
