5 Reasons To Switch To LED Light Bulbs

Posted by

In our last blog post, we touched on a few of the reasons that LED light bulbs were so great for the environment. As if that wasn’t reason enough, there are still countless factors that make the choice of switching over to LED bulbs an easy one.

The team at SOS LightBulbs is proud to provide individuals across the nation with quality light bulbs. In our time as a business, we have seen first-hand just how many advantages there are when you switch to LED bulbs. In today’s blog, we are going to cover five of the reasons that we think making the switch is one of the easiest decisions you’ll ever make.

Save Energy

LED light bulbs conserve energy. These bulbs convert 95 percent of their energy to light and only five percent of their energy to heat. This is why LED light bulbs can provide a brighter light. What that means for you (aside from having a better lit home) is that you too are spending less money on the energy needed to create light. All in all, switching to LED light bulbs will save you money on your electric bill time and time again.

Longer Life Span

Guess what — energy consumption isn’t the only way that LED light bulbs are going to save you money! LED light bulbs have a significantly longer life span. This is likely due to the fact that they are able to convert a majority of their energy into light rather than heat. Because of this factor, LED bulbs are less likely to overheat, meaning that they are also less likely to burn out or explode.

In the long run, when you have bulbs that aren’t producing as much heat, you have bulbs that can stick around for a while longer. In the case of LED bulbs, the life span is much longer! The way we see it, LED bulbs also save you money because you’re having to replace your bulbs less frequently. That’s a win.

Bright Light

When shopping for light bulbs, it’s a given that you’re going to be looking for a bulb that can provide you with clear, bright light. This is, after all, the purpose of light bulbs. So why is it that so many light bulbs only provide you with a soft light or a dim light? Well, that’s because they aren’t LED light bulbs. If a bright light is what you’re looking for, then LED bulbs are your one and only option. Providing more than double the lumens at a fraction of the cost, it’s no wonder this is such a popular lighting solution.

Variety of Uses

If you think that LED light bulbs can only be used indoors or in office spaces, you’re incorrect. LED Lights actually have more uses than the traditional light bulbs that we’ve turned to for years. Given that LED bulbs can produce brighter light, they are a fantastic option when considering the right bulb for your landscaping. LED light bulbs also come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. This means that it’s relatively easy to find a bulb for just about any need.

Quiet Bulbs

It may seem silly to see noise (or the lack thereof) on a list of advantages for a light bulb. If you’re not sure what we’re talking about, chances are that you’re already surrounded by LED bulbs in your day to day life, because the reality is that light bulbs can be relatively loud. Have you ever heard that faint buzzing when sitting in the bathroom of a commercial building, or when reading a book in your study? This is actually the sound of your light bulb creating light.

Because the process of LED bulbs converting energy into light is so different, and because they create so much less heat, they make virtually no sound. This is a fantastic benefit if you’re someone that is constantly noticing the buzzing of lights or is bothered by even the faintest of sounds.
