LED (light-emitting diode) bulbs are the latest advancement in lighting. They are a great alternative to halogen or traditional incandescent light bulbs.
LED light bulbs typically use about 25%-80% less energy and can last 3-25 times longer than traditional incandescent light bulbs.
They’re design flexibility and energy efficiency makes them a popular choice when remodeling a kitchen or bathroom.

Nine Reasons to Switch to LED Light Bulbs
Long Life Span - LED light bulbs last up to 8-10 times longer than standard light bulbs. LED light bulbs have a remarkable long life span of up to 80,000 hours. For hard-to-reach light fixtures, LEDs are an ideal choice since you don't need to replace them as often.
Energy Efficient - On average, a standard 50W halogen lamp turns 90% of electricity used into heat, with only 10% of that energy converted into light. LED light bulbs use only 15% of the energy a standard halogen uses while providing up to 85% of the light output. And because they give off little to no heat, they reduce cooling expenses.
Environmentally Friendly - LED light bulbs are free of toxic chemicals, do not contain mercury or other harmful gasses or emit any harmful UV rays. Plus, LED light bulbs are 100% recyclable.
Durable - LED light bulbs have no filaments,and contain no glass components. Thus, they are not vulnerable to vibration or breakage like conventional bulbs, making them a great choice for sports facilities and outdoor areas. And since LED light bulbs don’t emit heat, you can install them in more areas safely.
Compact Size - LED light bulbs can be as small as 2mm, making them ideal for fitting into hard to reach and compact areas.
Direction: LED light bulbs emit light in a specific direction, reducing the need for reflectors and diffusers that can trap light. This feature makes LED light bulbs more efficient for many uses such as recessed down-lights and task lighting. With other types of lighting, the light must be reflected to the desired direction and more than half of the light may never leave the fixture.
Safety - Most LED lights operate at low voltage so are cool to touch and much safer to handle during installation and maintenance. LED light bulbs can also be safely exposed to rain and snow.
Instantly On and Fast Switching - LED light bulbs will start at full brightness, instantly, every time. Therefore, there's no need for backup lighting. LED light bulbs are a benefit because they switch on and off instantly making them ideal for flashing signs, traffic signaling and automotive lights. Standard compact fluorescent lights fade in and out or flicker.
Also, LED light bulbs can be switched off and on frequentlywithout affecting the LED’s lifetime or light emission. Traditional light bulbs, in comparison, may take several seconds to reach full brightness. Also, frequent on/off switching does drastically reduce operational life expectancy.
Energy Savings = Reduced Utility Cost - Lights that you use often in areas like your kitchen, bathroom or bedroom utilize a substantial amount of energy due to their frequency and length of time of use. Switching to LED light bulbs can reduce the overall energy use from your lighting, reducing your ongoing utility costs.
