LED lights for home and business

If you are still using incandescent bulbs, you may be wasting a lot of money each year. Not only do incandescent bulbs have a higher energy cost and need to be replaced much more often, but they also are being phased out. If you haven’t considered switching to LED lights, now is the time. Here are three things to look for when you are buying LED lights for your home or business.

What Should I Look for When Buying LED Lights for my Home or Business?

 

1. Look at the lumens, not the watts. First, when looking for incandescent bulbs, you have been used to looking at the wattage to tell the quality. For LED lights, wattage means nothing. Contrary to what we grew up thinking, wattage is not about how much light the bulb puts out but instead about how much energy the bulb uses. LED lights use far less energy while having more light, so to get an accurate idea of how much light your LED light will emit, look at the lumens, not watts.

 

2. Get the right color. Generally speaking, incandescent bulbs come in an unappealing shade of warm yellow, but LED lights have a much larger variety of colors. When selecting LED lights, pay attention to the color. If you are looking for the light most similar to incandescent bulbs, you’ll be looking for soft white LED lights. If you want to emulate how it looks outdoors, you will look for daylight LED bulbs.

 

3. Consider the price. Finally, you have to consider the price. You may have noticed that LED lights are more expensive on the shelf than incandescent bulbs. This is because LED lights last for much longer. An average LED light can last up to seven times longer than your average incandescent bulb. This means you will be replacing LED lights much less often, and you’ll be saving money in the long run.

 

LED lights have many benefits over incandescent bulbs. They last longer, emit less heat, and use less energy. Making an investment in LED lights will absolutely save you money in the long run.
