Light Emitting Diodes or LED lights are the preferred choice for homes and commercial enterprises today. The best part is that LED lights are used for making energy efficient lighting products, which in the long run helps you conserve electricity, cut down on costs of maintenance and also opt for traditional lighting styles with less investments. Here are some pros of the same-
1. Energy efficient
LED is the smart choice for today’s generation because it helps to conserve at least 85% energy as compared to regular lights. This means that it allows to contribute towards the environment by being a part of the energy efficient move. On an average, almost 50% lighting costs can be reduced if you use LED as compared to the CFL.
LED lights are quite versatile along with being energy efficient. You can use them anywhere whether it’s a parking lot, an office, kids room or a driveway. They go well with different decor themes, that makes it a wise choice to invest on.
3. Save more
WithLEDlights, not only do you save on instant costs, but accumulate more savings over the years. With the promotion of LED, the demand for electricity is expected to go down by almost 62% for lights and can reduce about 258 million metric tons of carbon emissions. Materials being put into landfills can also reduce and on the whole, almost $280 billion can be saved in the U.S alone.
4. Incandescent bulbs or LED
One of the biggest drawbacks of the incandescent bulbs is the fact that almost all the heat emitted from these are converted to heat instead of light. As a result, it gets heated and feels hot to touch. But with LED, most of the energy is not converted to heat and thus prevent it from getting heated. This feature makes LED’s safer, less accident prone and a sensible option for households.
LEDs are free from different kinds of hazardous materials, such as mercury and is safe for the environment too.
5. Solar LED’S
A solar light is a fixture that uses solar energy to light up bulbs or LED’s. It is mainly used for lighting storage sheds, greenhouse, garage, storage areas or workshops. Over the years the only choice for providing illumination to these shed/ outdoor areas was through battery lights. Now with the use of solar powered shed lights, it is possible to illuminate isolated and dark locations. Solar lights are advantageous in the way that it eliminates maintenance costs and the need for frequent battery replacements. In case, the need for some occasional or additional lighting pops-up, these lights will find its natural place and buyers.
Setting up a solar LED light is very easy. All that needs to be done is attaching the small solar panel to the wall of the shed or the house and run the supplied cable to the area you want your light to be placed. By attaching the adjustable solar module on an outside wall or roof, and running the wire to the light fixture enables to light up the equipment. During the day, the solar panel absorbs the energy from the sun and get stored in rechargeable batteries located inside the light fixture. Once these are well charged, these batteries can be used for long hours. Once in a few years the need for the replacement of these batteries and LED’s (light emitting diodes) may appear, but that is perfectly alright as these lights and batteries gets well-used by that time. These equipment’s do not require any permanent wiring and you can thus save considerable cost.
The LED lights do not require any underground cables to be laid from home to the shed. These are cost effective and do not use perishable sources of energy. So, go ahead and get them!
