5 Benefits of Switching to LED Lighting

Recently, everyone is talking about the latest in LED lighting, but you might be thinking ‘what is LED?’ and ‘how can LED lighting benefit me and my home?’

When LED technology was introduced many years ago, people were disappointed by the colour and level of light provided. Back then the technology was still new and needed improvements. Now, LED lighting is the biggest news since the invention of electric lighting. Since its introduction, LED lighting has come on leaps and bounds and it is now being recognised as the most cost effective and energy efficient way to light your home.

Litecraft have been keeping up with lighting innovation for over 60 years, and we know everything there is to know about converting to LED.

Are you thinking about making the switch to LED lighting? Then take a look at our top 5 benefits of LED lighting.

 1. Energy Efficient

LED lighting energy saving efficiency

One of the biggest benefits of LED lighting is the energy saving potential. Energy saving bulbs have been around for a while, but LED lights are much more energy efficient than any other type that has been available.

LED bulbs use up to 90% less energy than traditional incandescent light bulbs, so by switching to LED lighting, you can reduce your household energy consumption by up to 90%!

Unlike traditional bulbs which waste a lot of energy on heat, LED technology produces very little heat waste. As a result, all of the energy used goes towards creating light, so LEDs use much less energy to produce the same amount of brightness. LED bulbs can provide bright light with as little as 2 watts.

 2. Money Saving

LED lighting benefits money saving lighting

Because LED bulbs are so energy efficient, it is easy to see how they can save you money in your home. Switching just one bulb from traditional incandescent bulbs to LED can reduce your energy bills, but switching every light to LED can save a typical home around £30 a month! When you add that up over the years, it is easy to see that LED bulbs are a great option if you’re looking to save money.

Switching to LED bulbs may seem costly at first, because the initial costs of purchasing bulbs are higher than traditional bulbs. However, LED bulbs will significantly reduce your energy bills and will not need replacing for a decade or longer. With this in mind, LED bulbs are a worthwhile investment that will save you money in the long run.

 3. Long Lasting

LED light bulbs long lasting lifespan

Unlike traditional bulbs which need changing often, LED bulbs have a much longer life span.  LED bulbs can last up to 50,000 hours compared to around 10,000 from energy saving CFL bulbs and 1,000 from traditional bulbs. Depending on the level of use, LED bulbs would not need to be replaced for 10-20 years. This means that constant light bulb changing will be a thing of the past.

As well as having long lasting power, LED lights are strong and built to last with sturdy components, so you don’t need to worry about them breaking over the years. LED bulbs are shock resistant and can withstand impact. This makes them suitable for use in the home as well as outdoors.

4. Bright & Instant Illumination

Bright LED lighting instant light

Before LED lights, the best way to save energy on lighting your home was to use low energy CFL bulbs. However, these had some drawbacks, the main one being the slow turn on time; when switched on, the light took a few minutes to warm up and get to full brightness.

In contrast, LED light bulbs light up instantly at the flick of the switch. Simply turn them on for full, bright illumination. By switching to LED, no longer will you have to suffer from a dimly lit room while you wait for your energy saving light bulbs to warm up.

 5. Eco- Friendly

Environmentally friendly lighting LED green eco-friendly light

It is estimated that around 20% of the electricity produced in the UK is used on lighting. That is a lot of the earth’s resources being used up just to light our homes and buildings. LED bulbs use much less energy to light a home (up to 90%), which not only saves you money but if everyone switched to LED, it would help to cut down on the UK’s energy consumption.

As well as this, LED light bulbs are much longer lasting than traditional bulbs, meaning you don’t have to buy new bulbs and throw away the old ones as often. This will greatly reduce the amount of light bulbs put into landfill every year.

Unlike CFL bulbs, LEDs do not contain any toxic chemicals or materials such as mercury which can be harmful to the environment. They do not produce any harmful UV or infrared light. They are 100% recyclable, so by buying LED light bulbs you can do your bit for the planet.

It is easy to see that switching to LED light bulbs can offer us many benefits, from saving money to being environmentally responsible. Litecraft have a wide range of LED light bulbs and LED light fittings available online to make the switch as simple as possible. We also have a brand new range of contemporary Philips LED lights, including amazing LED mood lighting and a range of energy saving LED ceiling lights.
