LED lighting is growing in popularity year after year with the market currently estimated at $2 billion and expected to hit $25 billion by 2023. But why is LED lighting taking the world by storm and why is it time for you to make the switch?
Although initially more expensive to purchase, LED lights are significantly more efficient than ordinary halogen globes and use approximately 85% less energy. With an estimated lifespan of between 30,000-50,000 hours compared to the usual 1,000-5,000 hour lifespan of a halogen globe, LED lighting is a wise investment for any homeowner or payer of electricity bills.
LED lighting reaches their full brightness instantly without having to warm-up. Operating at low temperatures, the globe itself will not become hot which makes them a much safer option to install and operate around your home.
LED lighting is available in an array of colours ranging from cooler white to warm white. Cool white is often chosen to mimic an artificial light and is suitable for work areas and laundries. Warm white is often selected for 90% of the home including lounge, bedroom and dining area as to create a more intimate and relaxed atmosphere. Natural light fits in between warm and cool white and is chosen when wanting to reflect natural sunlight. Lighting colour is measured in temperature Kelvins, with warm light measured in low numbers and cool white measured in higher numbers.
After making the economical investment and converting your home lighting to LED, it is expected that the saving in electricity cost will pay for the light in less than 2 years and from then on, the savings stay in your pocket. As well as saving up to 85% off your electricity bill, you will not need to replace the globes for 25 years making LED lighting an efficient, economical and safe investment.
