What are LED bulbs?

LED stands for light-emitting diode. It’s a type of light that’s quickly replacing incandescent bulbs in residential spaces. LEDs use a semiconductor, which then emits light when the electric current passes through. These lights offer immense benefits, as they emit less heat when they are on for extended periods of time, use much less energy than other types of lighting, and last far longer than incandescent bulbs.

Plus, some LED bulbs can be hooked up in smart home applications or linked to apps on a mobile device so you can adjust the light’s colors or add dimmable LED light bulbs to your home.

Why are LED lights the best for energy-efficient lighting?

This type of lighting is best for energy efficiency in the home because with LED bulbs, nearly 100% of the energy used by the bulb produces light, as opposed to wasting a significant amount being wasted on producing heat. The standard incandescent bulb, which wastes significant energy putting off heat, is common in many homes today.

Other types of lighting, like florescent tubes are not suitable for residential environments because they contain toxic mercury gas, which is definitely not something you want sitting in your bedroom light fixtures.

Are LED lights the most efficient?

Yes, LEDs are the most energy-efficient light source technology in existence today. This has made them rise in popularity, and become a highly-desirable option for all residential lighting. LED light fixtures can be found in rooms across the home because of their versatility and reliability.

What are the advantages of LED tube lights?

It is common for fluorescent bulbs to be used in tube lighting, however, opting for LEDs can be 80% more efficient due to their reduced power dependency and capacity to avoid wasting energy on producing heat. Plus, there’s the added benefit of avoiding harsh chemicals contained in florescent tubes.
