Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Article is concentrated on the advantages of using Led lighting versus the traditional and most widely used incandescent and halogen lighting.

Most common questions that are going thru Your head: What the heck is Led? Is this true that I can save on energy usage and cost simply by replacing light bulbs? What are the benefits of using Led lighting in house? I've heard that I need to make large investments to make Led work at my house.

Led is acronym of words "Light Emitting Diode". It's easier to understand that 1 lightbulb consists of several smaller ones. And that's it....

This is the place where You start to think so how the smaller Led lightbulbs be better than my one solid 60W incandescent bulb, that I have used and replaced for years now.

Low energy consumption is one of the features where Led outshines the Incandescent and Halogen lighting. Most commonly used Incandescent bulbs varies somewhere between 40 - 100 watts, where the halogen lighting uses 10 - 50 watts of energy and the led lighting at house use energy 3 - 10 watts.

Led lighting 1:0 Incandescent and Halogen

Next thing why prefer led lighting at house is the long lifetime of the bulbs. Average lifetime of led lighbulb may be somewhere in between 25000 to 50000 hours or around 15-20 years. May turn out shorter if You prefer sleeping with Your lights on.... Can You imagine how many incandescent or halogen lightbulbs You will need to replace within that period.

Led lighting 2: 0 Incandescent and Halogen

Have You noticed when switching on the incandescent or halogen light they tend to warm up quite long. Result is that You will get the needed brighter light only after some time. One of the advantages of Led lighting is that it achieves full brightness instantly. You no longer need to sit and wait for light to warm up so You could read a book or do stuff You like. Long warm up period is equalized to halogen light. Incandescent in this case is just strangely orangy/yellow.

What's the score for now 3:0 in favor of Led lighting ?!

If we now come to conclusion of the above said. If Your lightbulb at house stopped working try to replace it with the Led lightbulb. It wont take much from You. Who knows maybe You'll remember what I said and start to like what Led offers You. Remember that Led lighting at house is energy efficient, with long lifetime and gives You pretty good brightness instantly. If You're more interested in Led lighting then there are also available lightbulbs with different shapes and colors, dimmable versions of led lightbulbs (for the romantic evenings), all kinds of energy output and so on.
