You probably already know that LED lighting is better for the environment, but could you say exactly how or why? Most people can’t, and that’s okay! However, if you’re still on the fence about purchasing and installing these bulbs, then you should know a few things that may help you to make up your mind.
More on the Benefits of LED Lighting
They’ve been seeing enormous growth in purchase and use, and that’s because they come with a myriad of benefits. LED lighting is more efficient than traditional methods and is also more technological, meaning that it has been designed with the present – and future – in mind. More than that, they’re known for being a better option financially because of how long they last before you need to replace them.
So, more specifically, what can LED bulbs do for the environment? For one thing, they’re said to be about 80% more efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs or even florescents. That’s obviously a huge jump! In addition, they provide more light without giving off nearly any heat, which is typically the opposite in older models of lighting. If you’ve ever had low-light, hot-to-the-touch bulbs in your home, then you’ve probably had incandescents. LEDs would be the reverse.
“Great energy efficiency equals less demand from power plants and a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions.” It isn’t hard to imagine how this might have a positive impact on the world around us. Your office lighting – likely florescent – actually contains some harmful chemicals which can be damaging once they are disposed of in landfills and other places. As you may have guessed, LED lights don’t have this issue and can be removed with no danger to the environment.
Finally, in a general sense, LED lighting provides more light for a longer period of time than other types of bulbs. This means you have to purchase them less frequently, and, as a result, they have to be produced less frequently. With all of these benefits and no downsides, what do you have to lose?
