Benefits of LED Lights
LED bulbs have numerous benefits when compared to traditional incandescent lighting.
- Saves energy: LED lights are up to 90 percent more efficient than incandescent lights.
- Long lasting: LED lights consist of solid-state construction, making them less likely to break when compared to conventional lights. According to the Department of Energy, the best white LED’s have been found to have a useful life of about 35,000 hours, or four years of continuous operation. Also, when one light goes out on a decorative holiday strand, the others stay lit.
- Safety: The epoxy plastic that encapsulated LED bulbs is cool to the touch
