Why Choose Energy-Saving LED Light Bulbs

LED light bulbs are currently about to take over the lighting technology market by storm. And this with good reasons, because as you know, LED bulbs are a far more energy efficient, more environmentally friendly and also a cost-saving alternative to the old conventional incandescent and CFL light bulbs.

Let’s take a closer look at the top 5 reasons LED lighting clearly outshines its alternatives and leaves the other conventional lighting technologies left behind and in the dark.

1. LED light bulbs are more energy efficient

The main argument of course refers to the clear advantage LED lighting technologies have with regards to energy efficiency. With increasing costs of electricity, the cost factor of electricity is becoming more and more relevant. For example, up to 40% of a city’s electricity costs are spent on street lighting only!

By applying energy efficient LED light bulbs these costs can be reduced by 70-90% and generate significant cost-savings for urban communities and municipal governments.

2. LED light bulbs have a longer life span

When looking at the average life span of LED, conventional incandescent and CFL light bulbs, it is crystal clear to anyone why LED lighting is by far the best solution. An average CFL’s lifespan is approximately 8,000 hours, whereas incandescent light bulbs only light for about 1,200 hours. LED technology, on the other hand, has an average lifespan of an impressive up 50,000 hours or more!That means, an LED light bulb is an investment you make to last for many years or even decades of sustainable illumination in your personal home residence or on your commercial business premises and other public venues or buildings.

For urban lighting, this long life span also pays back in form of substantial cost-savings in maintenance:

Instead of having to replace conventional light bulbs regularly and thereby generating high maintenance costs especially in a large-scale urban municipality setting, LED light bulbs with their exceptional long life time expectancy lead to significant cost-savings in regards to maintenance and replacement workloads.

3. LED light bulbs helps you save money on your electricity bills

LED lights use less power (watts) per unit of light (lumen) generated. Therefore, they are not only much longer-lasting in lifespan but also lower your electricity bill providing 100 or even up to 200 lumen per watt. CFLs, in contrast use about twice the amount of watts and incandescent light bulbs around 10x as much power with only ca. 18-20 lumen per watts.

In a home or residential setting, this difference in lifespan and efficiency between incandescent lighting and LED lighting helps you to significantly reduce your electricity bill.

In conclusion, a LED light bulb is therefore almost 50 times more efficient in lifespan, and ca. 70-80% more energy-efficient than a conventional incandescent option. Impressed yet? It gets better!

4. LED lights are non-toxic and greener than other alternatives

Apart from the compelling differences in efficiency, lifespan and therefore also electricity cost, LED lighting is also the greenest solution available on today’s markets. For one, LEDs, in contrast to CFLs, do not contain the highly toxic mercury, which is harmful not only to the environment but also to your personal health.

LED lights are free of toxic materials and are 100% recyclable, and besides this they will help you to reduce your carbon footprint by up to a third:

The long operational life time span mentioned above means also that one LED light bulb can save material and production of 25 incandescent light bulbs. A big step towards a greener future!

Most important for issues regarding global warming and environmental change, LED light bulbs release substantially less CO2, sulfur oxide and nuclear waste. Where 30 incandescent light bulbs release about 2500 kg’s of these emissions a year, LEDs only produce about 200 kg’s annually.Taking into consideration the increasing threats of global warming and the effects of CO2 emissions on our planet and personal health, it goes without saying that LED bulbs are by far the greenest lighting solution so far.

5. LED lighting is flexible in color and design

LED lights can easily be combined in various shapes and designs in order to produce highly efficient solutions for both residential and commercial illumination. Individual LEDs can be dimmed and both light, color and distribution can be dynamic controlled and adjusted either via timers or also remote and even via the internet or your home WLAN.A well-designed LED illumination system can achieve some amazing lighting effects that influence not only the eye but also for the mood and the mind of human beings.

It is high time to start saving money, benefit from longer-lasting lighting systems and sustainable illumination – and most importantly, you can also do your part and start to help saving our planet.
