We’ve devised an exhaustive list that would blow any other resource out of the water, with a list of 50 (yes, fifty!) reasons why you should be using LED Lights over the typical halogen/incandescent/fluorescent  bulb that you may find in your domain. 

 

# 1. They require less energy to power, LEDs will save you electricity

 

# 2. Compared to incandescent bulbs, LED lights will save you around 80% of electrical power

 

# 3. In comparison with a halogen lamp, there is a 75% saving on electricity

 

# 4. They contain no hazardous solids, liquids or gases – which can be harmful to the environment

 

# 5. Used as automobile lighting, LEDs have been proven to help reduce the risk of car accidents in daylight hours by 15%

 

# 6. Because they produce a cold light, LEDs can be ideal for growing indoor plants

 

# 7. LED Lights are available in a number of different colours and shades that can define the style, setting and ambience you desire

 

# 8. There is no high-powered discharge that can have a detrimental effect on the eyes

 

# 9. LEDs use direct light meaning there is no light pollution

 

# 10. Used as a temperature gauge, LEDs can help you distinguish between hot and cold water

 

# 11. LEDs have no UV light, eradicating the possibility of skin damage

 

# 12. Used by your local council as lighting solutions, they will vastly improve the visibility on your roads 

 

# 13. Despite being cold to touch, LEDs offer a “warm” glow – much like their incandescent counterparts

 

# 14. They are easy to install – simply screw on

 

# 15. They are easy to uninstall (yes, that’s a separate reason!) – and won’t burn you

 

# 16. There is no need for excessive maintenance – once they’re installed, they won’t bother you!

 

# 17. LEDs have a thick epoxy which makes them incredibly durable and pretty much impossible to break

 

# 18. LED string lights have thicker wires – meaning they are less likely to get into a knotted mess

 

# 19. Using LEDs in the outdoors? They are completely rust-proof

 

# 20. LED Lights don’t flicker

 

# 21. They have the ability to be dimmed

 

# 22. LEDs retain their true colours

# 28. They can last up to 50,000 hours (that’s a long time)

 

# 29. LEDs last 2400% longer than regular halogen bulbs – which can be in advance of 40 years difference based on average use

 

# 30. They can help you build a light saber (and who wouldn’t want to do that?)

 

# 31. LEDs can be installed and utilised both inside and outside of the home with no affect on lighting quality

 

# 32. LEDs immediately switch-on with no warm-up time

 

# 33. The lights are fully operational in all types of weather conditions

 

# 34. They contain no harmful environmental pollutants like lead or mercury

# 37. They could help improve your eyesight in the future (ok, perhaps a little farfetched)

 

# 38. LEDs can help to save lives

 

# 39. The low voltage power supply associated to LEDs increases electrical safety

 

# 40. They are lightweight

 

# 41. They are much brighter than your traditional lighting solution and will improve visibility

 

# 42. They are more flexible, versatile and adaptable than traditional lighting

 

# 43. Used at Christmas time, LEDs can reduce a risk of a fire compared to standard Christmas lights
