LED lighting is the absolute best option for your holiday decor...and your everyday lighting. The advantages of LED lighting are so numerous, I won't be able to cover all of them in this article.
LED lighting is up to 80% more energy efficient than traditional lighting such as fluorescent and incandescent. This will save you a substantial amount of money on your electric bill. They have a super long life of up to 80,000 hours, 8-10 times longer than a standard bulb. Approximately 90-95% of the energy in LEDs gets converted into light and only about 5% is wasted as heat. Fluorescent lights convert 95% into heat and only convert 5% to light.
LED lighting is safer than traditional lighting because most operate at a lower voltage and emit far less heat which makes them cool to the touch and safer to handle. They are eco friendly because they contain no toxic materials and a 13W LED bulb produces approximately 68% less CO2 than a standard 40W incandescent bulb(running for 10hours/day). LEDs also do not emit harmful UV rays and they are 100% recyclable.
Recently, the prices have dropped dramatically on LEDs. Use them in all your light fixtures and certainly for your holiday decor.
In your office, LEDs have a more direct light path, use less energy, emit much less heat and no flickering or humming. Productivity up and expenses down!
