LED (light emitting diode) bulbs are used in lamps, small lighting fixtures and for holiday lights. They are also used in small electronics, such as DVD players, as well as in tiny flashlights. LED bulbs are also used for more residential upgrades, such as under-cabinet lighting, recessed lighting fixtures, dimmable recessed lights and for landscape lighting applications.
LED bulbs have an extremely long lifespan. They can last between 50,000 to 60,000 hours. This is more than 4x longer than CFL bulbs. LED bulbs use only 2-10 watts of electricity (1/3 to 1/30 of incandescent or CFL bulbs). As with CFL bulbs, LED’s don’t produce heat. According to Eartheasy.com, "LEDs produce 3.4 BTU's/hour, compared to 85 for incandescent bulbs." In 2009, the first LED-based replacements for a traditional light bulb were made available to the public. These bulbs give off an amount of light equivalent to a 40-watt incandescent bulb. Most homeowners use 65 watt bulbs and higher. However, the extremely long lifespan of LED bulbs has made them into a popular choice.
