LED Lighting: Ten Reasons to Make the Switch

by Michelle S. on February 28, 2014

They’re quickly becoming the preferred choice in lighting. Still wondering what makes LEDs so popular? Read on for ten good reasons you should make the switch.

  1. They can simulate the sun. Next-generation LEDs closely mimic the spectrum and intensity of natural sunlight, enhancing colors and sharpening fine details.
  2. LEDs lights are safer. With low heat output and minimal energy consumption overall, LEDs are much safer alternatives to their incandescent cousins.
  3. LEDs have a longer lifespan. LEDs conservatively last 30,000 hours or more, as compared to the 2,000 hour lifespan of incandescents or 20,000 hour lifespan of linear fluorescents.
  4. They offer improved contrast. Text appears brighter and sharper between pure black and white lines, reducing the occurrence of headaches, eye strain and red eye.
  5. They quickly come to light. LEDs switch on instantly, even when cold – producing 100% of their light within microseconds.
  6. LEDs promote healthy vision. Good lighting can ease the symptoms of Presbyopia, a natural change in vision that occurs with age and interferes with the ability to focus on objects.
  7. LEDs are incredibly efficient. With low power consumption, LED lights are up to 85% more efficient than incandescent bulbs, leading to significant energy savings.
  8. They are bright and true to color. LED lighting provides brighter, truer color than a filtered bulb, even when dimmed.
  9. They’re incredibly versatile. Today there’s an LED style available to replace virtually any bulb for any light source in the workspace and beyond.
  10. LEDs give hope for a brighter tomorrow. Environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient, LEDs contain no poisonous mercury and last for years to come.
