The Advantages of LED Home Lighting

Are you about to redo your home lighting fixtures? When you put bulbs in, make sure those bulbs are LEDs. These bulbs are more environmentally friendly than others and may be very important for regions that need to conserve a lot of electricity. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, LED bulbs may be able to reduce electricity usage by almost 50%.

Cost Effective

LEDs use a very small amount of energy compared to halogen and incandescent bulbs. They even use less energy than compact fluorescents. That translates into lower electric bills almost immediately. If you’ve switched out most or all of the bulbs in your home to LEDs, you can quickly make up for the money you spent buying them. LEDs are really the best choice for people who want efficient home lighting that does not harm their household budget.


A major selling point of LED bulbs has been their lifespan. Obviously, the more you use the bulb, the sooner it will fail. But even then, you’re going to get a lot of life out of the bulb. This can be a relief if the light is high up on the ceiling and hard for you to reach. Also because the price of LED bulbs has fallen dramatically over the years, you don’t have to spend a ton of money getting the bulbs in the first place.


If you have an old LED lightbulb, you won’t need to bring it to a hazardous waste center as you are required to with compact fluorescent bulbs. You don’t have to do that with LEDs because LEDs don’t contain any mercury. You can throw them in the trash just like you used to do with incandescent bulbs. If the bulb breaks, you can treat it like broken glass by carefully disposing of it without the worry of contact with mercury. LEDs are so much better for the environment not only because of their efficiency, but also because they no longer contain this toxic substance.
