Why should you replace
your Incandescent and
Lights (CFL) Light Bulbs?
- LED bulbs last up to 10 times as long as compact fluorescents, and far
longer than typical incandescent bulbs.
- Durable -
since LEDs do not have a filament, they are not damaged under circumstances
when a regular incandescent bulb would be broken. Because they are solid,
LED bulbs hold up well to jarring and bumping.
- Cool - these
bulbs do not cause heat build-up; LEDs produce 3.4 btu's/hour, compared to
85 for incandescent bulbs. This also cuts down on air conditioning costs in
- no mercury is used in the manufacturing of LEDs.
- More efficient
- LED light bulbs use only 2-10 watts of electricity (1/3rd to 1/30th of
Incandescent or CFL) Small LED flashlight bulbs will extend battery life 10
to 15 times longer than with incandescent bulbs. Also, because these bulbs
last for years, energy is saved in maintenance and replacement costs. For
example, many cities in the US are replacing their incandescent traffic
lights with LED arrays because the electricity costs can be reduced by 80%
- although LEDs are expensive, the cost is recouped over time and in battery
savings. For the AC bulbs and large cluster arrays, the best value comes
from commercial use where maintenance and replacement costs are expensive.
- Light for remote
areas - because of the low power requirement for LEDs, using solar
panels becomes more practical and less expensive than running an electric
line or using a generator for lighting.
