7 Reasons to Switch to LED Lights
When it comes to your home, small switches can save you time, money and stress. A switch to LED lights is something we recommend regularly. More and more people are switching from traditional and CFL-type bulbs to LED lights. With these seven reasons we have compiled below, it is easy to see why! Why not make the change for your home too?
LED Bulbs Last Longer
One of the biggest benefits that come from switching to LED lights is that the bulbs last much longer than traditional incandescent bulbs and even more modern CFL-type bulbs. Changing bulbs can be difficult, and often happens at the wrong time. This isn’t a problem with LED lighting as the bulbs last so much longer.
They Are Cheaper to Run Too
LED lighting is incredibly energy efficient, saving you money the more you use them. If you switch all your bulbs from traditional lighting to LED, you will instantly see a difference in your energy costs. Though they can cost a little more than other bulbs, the savings you make quickly cover the extra expense.
More Lighting Options
LED Lights come in a wide variety of colours. At Any-lamp.co.uk you can find just about every type of bulb, with some capable of changing colour to suit your mood or your decor. Traditional bulbs keep you stuck in one light scheme, but LEDs can help you to change a room’s look with a flick of a switch.
Smart Lighting for the Future
Many LED bulbs are smart lights that have ‘IoT’ (Internet of Things) functionality. This means they can be controlled by a smartphone app or even a digital assistant like Amazon Alexa or Google Home. You can turn lights off and one with your voice, and even over Wi-Fi from your phone.
LED Lights are More Durable
Not only do LED lights last longer, but they are also a lot more durable. Traditional incandescent bulbs are very delicate, and the slightest knock can loosen their filament and make them unusable. LED lights are much more durable, and can withstand the accidents and damage that can happen in a busy family home. Knocking over a lamp no longer means replacing the bulb.
Safer and More Environmentally Friendly
Traditional bulbs give out a lot of heat, and can even become a fire hazard. Most lampshades and coverings will have a wattage limit to prevent the shade combusting from the heat of a powerful, high-watt bulb. With LED lights, you no longer have this restriction. Though they can provide a similar level of light to any traditional bulb, they do so at a much lower wattage with almost no excess heat.
LED lights are also more environmentally friendly. By using less power, they reduce the consumption of fossil fuels, and they are made from fewer components and more recyclable materials.
LED Bulbs are Made for Every Type of Fitting
No matter how old or how unique your lamps or light fittings are, you can find an LED bulb with the right fitting and look for you. They are available in all shapes, sizes, and fitting types so anyone can make the switch!
With LED lighting you open up your home to a huge range of lighting options. Not only can you give any room a new look, but you can also save money on your electricity bills and make your home safer!
