The Benefits of LED Lighting
Through our vast experience in all things lighting, we have seen the reoccurring benefits of LED lighting. LED, which stands for Light Emitting Diodes, is the latest and most exciting new technology in the lighting world. Not only do the lights shed stunning and beautiful rays, they also help to keep you and your home safe. The benefits of LED lighting for safety purposes are numerous, and we would like to share a few of them with you.
To begin, the lights are durable and resilient. One individual LED light can last up to 60,000 hours. If you’re doing the math, that is 2,500 days, or almost 7 years of constant use. In other words, if you are only using the lights for a few hours a day, they can last an unimaginably long time.
So why is this important for safety? Any time is a bad time for a light to burn out, especially at night, when the security of your home is most likely to be breached. With solar lighting, there is no guarantee that the charge is strong enough to last throughout the night. Only LED bulbs can provide the reassurance of consistent lighting.
Furthermore, during inclement weather, you can be safe and sound in your home, knowing that your LED lights are still producing the comforting light you have come to expect. The strong components of LED lights are constructed to withstand high temperatures and even shock. During cloudy weather, solar lights will not have the opportunity to charge, and will therefore not work when you need them the most. Additionally, the small, yet bright LED lights produce very little heat, so there is no risk of burns or fire.
For the best safety and security, some households choose to keep their outdoor lights on throughout the night, or while they are away from home. While that may seem like a lot of wasted energy, with LED lights, you are guaranteed the best energy efficiency, and thus, the best cost savings. Though solar lighting is energy efficient, it is not as reliable as LED lighting has proven to be.
Overall, LED lighting provides the best safety and security for you and your home. Contact Elegant Accents today to see what LED lighting can do for you.
