You may have been hearing more and more people talk about LED lights. Why are they so much better then our new super power florescent? They use less energy and don’t have mercury in them! Pretty much everything you hate about florescent are fixed with LED.
LED Light Bulbs do use about 90% less energy then an incandescent light bulb, you know those old bulbs you have somewhere. They also start working quickly when turned on, unlike a florescent bulb that needs a few seconds to warm up. An LED lamp is rated at 100,000 hours that means that is should be almost 20 years before you have to replace it, of course this does depend on your use of the bulb.
If your wondering what type of LED bulb to get check out the comparisons below.
* 3W High Power LED Bulb = 30W incandescent flood.
* 7W High Power LED Bulb = 50W incandescent flood.
* 12W High Power LED Bulb = 85W incandescent flood.
I hope this will help you with your fears of buying LEDs and that you will check it out. Try switching a few of your mostly used lights to LEDs and see over a year how much you save.
