With electricity prices constantly rising and the energy crisis situation declared in our country, more and more people are deciding to replace their bulbs and halogen lamps with LED lighting.

What is the importance of this lighting in our home and what are the benefits? We give you all the details, in today’s blog.

LED lighting in our home

The term LED comes from ”Light Emitting Diodes”. And is that, its operation is based on diodes that convert electricity into light.

Compared to traditional lighting, LEDs offer many advantages. Among them we highlight:

  • Energy savings

The benefit par excellence of this type of lighting is the savings in the electricity bill at the end of the month.

It is estimated that this type of lighting consumes up to 90% less energy than traditional lighting.

  • Longer life

It is considered that the useful life of a traditional bulb is around 2.000 hours, while LEDs, on the other hand, last up to 15.000 hours.

This estimate would mean that a single LED bulb would be equivalent to 8 halogen bulbs and could last up to six years in operation.

  • Easy to install

The placement of this type of bulbs requires the use of a smaller gauge wiring, which means easy installation in hard-to-reach places.

  • Wide variety

In today’s market, there are many varieties of LED bulbs, of different styles, colors and sizes, suitable for both outdoors and indoors.

Thus, it is very easy to find an option that corresponds to the place where you want to make the installation.

  • Sustainability

LED lighting is the most sustainable option on the market today.

It does not contain polluting materials such as mercury, lead or tungsten, or other toxic materials that are present in other types of lamps. In addition, its energy consumption is much lower, which translates into an 80% reduction in CO2 emissions, one of the main gases involved in climate change.

  • No heat

A traditional lamp spends 70% of its energy generating heat and only 30% is converted into light. In the case of LED lighting, 5% of the energy consumed is heat, in addition to having a better dispersion system, which avoids burns in the case of touching the bulb.

Undoubtedly, these advantages of LED lighting offer us important benefits that we can start enjoying in our homes from now on.
