Still unsure if you should make the switch to LEDs?
We’ve devised an exhaustive list that blows any other resource out of the water, with a list of fifty (yes, fifty!) reasons why you should be using LED Lights over the typical halogen, incandescent or fluorescent bulb.
So, here we go...
# 1. They require less energy to power, saving 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’s a 75% saving on electricity
# 4. They contain no hazardous, 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 by 15%
# 6. Because they produce a cold light, LEDs are ideal for growing indoor plants (and have been used to grow plants in Space!)
# 7. But they don’t have to look cold. LED Lights are available in a number of different colours and shades, so you can define the style, setting and ambience you desire
# 8. Unlike high-intensity discharge lights, LEDs are soft on the eyes
# 9. LEDs use direct light so there’s no light pollution
# 10. Used as a temperature indicator, 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 street lighting solutions, they vastly improve the visibility on your roads
# 13. Despite being cold to touch, LEDs offer a “warm” glow, much like their incandescent counterparts
# 14. The globes are easy to install – simply screw on
# 15. They’re easy to uninstall (yes, that’s a separate reason!), and they 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 Festoon string lights have thicker wires, meaning they’re less likely to get into a knotted mess
# 19. Using LEDs in the great outdoors? They’re completely rust-proof
# 20. LED lights shouldn’t flicker
# 21. LED lights can be dimmed to easily adjust the mood and ambience
# 22. LEDs retain their true colours
# 23. LEDs let you walk your dog in the dark (useful, right?)

# 25. They’re silent and produce no annoying and distracting humming noises
# 26. While typically more expensive than a standard bulb, they’re still very affordable and freely available
# 27. They save you money on your electricity bills
# 28. They can last up to 50,000 hours (that’s a long time), and the technology is improving!
# 29. LEDs last 2400% longer than regular halogen bulbs. In reality, this could be a 40-year difference based on average use
# 30. They can help you build a lightsaber (and who wouldn’t want to do that?)
# 31. LEDs can be installed and utilised both inside and outside of the home with no effect 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
# 35. They’re recyclable
# 36. LEDs don’t emit Radio Frequency interference, so they won’t interfere with your radio
# 37. Breakthroughs and innovations in LED technology means the market for LED lighting is constantly evolving, from stadiums to bridges to LED displays
# 38. LEDs can help to save lives - they’re the go-to lighting solution across hospitals and healthcare facilities
# 39. The low-voltage power supply associated with LEDs increases electrical safety
# 40. They’re lightweight
# 41. They’re much brighter than your traditional lighting solution and will improve visibility
# 42. They’re more flexible, versatile and adaptable than traditional lighting
# 43. Used at Christmas time, LEDs can reduce the risk of fire compared to standard Christmas lights
# 44. LED light therapy has been known to alleviate a range of skin conditions
# 45. LEDs don’t burn out like incandescent bulbs – their brightness slowly fades, giving you plenty of time to replace them
# 46. As a homeowner, you’ll enjoy the convenience of not having to change a light bulb on a regular basis
# 47. You’ll save in the long-term because you won’t have to replace them as often as traditional lighting solutions
