Why More And More People Are Switching To LED Lighting

Posted on

Many Australians do not spend a lot of time thinking about such minor details like their lighting once they have it all installed. If you haven't upgraded your lighting or bulbs in over a decade you probably don't understand what all the fuss is about when it comes to LED lighting. The simple truth is that just like how there has been a massive overhaul in many other areas of technology, so the same is true with lighting.

Here are a few reasons why more and more people are switching to LED lighting and why you should consider doing it too.

Far More Value For Money 

While you may look at the price of an LED light compared to a traditional incandescent lightbulb and flinch, the truth is that this extra cost is more than made up for by the difference in quality. An LED light can last fifty times as long as your average incandescent light, and sometimes even more than that depending on the light. The process by which an LED light works is far less impactful on all the different individual components in the light so they do not burn out or break nearly as quickly as previous generations would.

Less Danger

If you have ever broken an old lightbulb or television and seen a cloud of gas come out of it then you have unwittingly put yourself at quite a bit of risk. These gasses are toxic and inserted into these lights and televisions on purpose to help with the illumination. LED lighting does not contain any dangerous elements like that which could poison you should they accidentally break. You don't need to be as careful when removing your LED lighting to replace it or change it in any way. They are safe to handle without the threat of gas.

Far More Customizable

LED lighting can be made exceptionally small, or big, and can even have different colours if you find a specific type of manufacturer. This means they are great for mood lighting as well as for large, industrial-sized areas. They shine bright and do not flicker, they are very reliable even in freezing cold or boiling hot temperatures, and they use less electricity than previous lights as well. They are simply far more customizable, easier to maintain and provide a better source of light than any other easily available option which is why more and more people are switching over to them.
