As we proceed here in 2014 LED lights and halogen lights are widely becoming the most popular with consumers. Both of them can efficiently light up and accentuate a room. Halogen bulbs contain halogen gas that allows it to produce about thirty percent more light than a regular bulb that uses the same amount of power. LED bulbs, on the other hand, produce light by running an electric current between two electrodes.
LED lights are tiny electronic lights that are ideal for home use and commercial use. You can use them in pretty much any situation. They can be used in malls, shopping centers, bars, restaurants and even traffic lights. They can last much longer than halogen lights. While halogen bulbs can typically last for two thousand hours to four thousand hours, LED bulbs can last for twenty-five thousand hours to eighty thousand hours. Halogen bulbs can be used for months but LED light bulbs can be used for years or even decades! Just think about how much money you will be saving. In fact a regular bulb which uses 100 watts is the same as an LED bulb which only uses 15 watts. Now that’s a big savings.
If you replace all your bulbs with LED lighting you can actually save hundreds even thousands of dollars a year! Use LED on your living room, kitchen, bedroom, and porch. Use them on your downlights to brighten up every room in your house. These lights are brighter than halogen and incandescent lights, so you will not have any problem with them. What’s also great is that they are cool to the touch so you never have to worry about getting burned.
Your hand will not hurt if you touch a LED light bulb that has been turned on for several hours already. On the contrary, halogen light bulbs are hot to the touch. Halogen downlights and outdoor lights may even cause fire if not turned off after a certain period time. In addition, LED lights come in a variety of colors. LED lights arer also great for lighting in emergencies and camping trips. Since they use so much less power you will also save a lot of money on batteries. They will prove very handy for your nights in the wild.
As you can see as we keep going in 2014 it is time to make the switch to LED lighting!
