The Benefit Of Using LED Bulbs

Light emitting diodes bulbs give off light very differently than incandescent light bulbs. The LED only using the electricity to generate light by sending electrons to a semiconductor. Because it only produces light unlike the incandescent bulb that has to heat up to produce light, it uses a lot less energy to produce that light.

Since 90% of the incandescent bulb’s energy is given off as heat, the LED is far more efficient because of its energy is used to create light. LED bulbs use 80% to 85% less energy than incandescent bulbs. They last much longer also reaching a lifespan that 3 to 25 times longer.

While the LED is five times the cost of the incandescent bulb, it uses far less energy more than making up for the initial outlay. Over a 25,000 hour period, the incadescent bulb uses 1500 kwh, while the LED only uses 212.5 kwh.
