    The Benefits of LED Lighting

    Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lighting options have become increasingly popular thanks to their
    durability and efficiency. There are numerous benefits to adding LED lighting to your home, and
    24/7 Electric is fully equipped to install any LED fixtures your heart’s desire. Still on the fence
    about LED or wanting to learn more? Here are the biggest benefits you can receive from LED
    lighting right away.

    1. Energy Efficiency

    According to the National Department of Energy, residential LEDs use 75% less lighting
    than typical incandescent lightbulbs. Not only is this great for the environment, this
    means that you will save money on your monthly electric bill.

    2. Lifespan

    LEDs are made to last 25 times longer that incandescent lights. Instead of completely
    burning out and ceasing to produce light, LEDs slowly dim over time. This obviously
    saves some time and money in a residential setting, but it can mean major savings on
    supplies and labor in a commercial setting.

    3. Durability

    LED bulbs are not made of filaments encased in fragile glass like incandescent bulbs are.
    Instead they are composed of a computer chip inside of a durable material called epoxy
    resin and they are mounted directly onto a circuit board. This makes them resistant to
    shock, vibrations, and external impacts. For this reason, they make excellent outdoor
    lighting options since exposure to weather is not an issue.

    4. Design

    There are a wide variety of different LED lighting products designed for specific areas of
    your home. Since LED bulbs can be altered to your preferred color, brightness, and
    shape they are very versatile for different parts of every home.

    One of the most popular options for hallways, kitchens, and bathrooms are recessed
    downlights. According to the National Department of Energy, there are an estimated 500
    million recessed lights already installed in homes across the United States, and every year 20
    million more are sold. Another popular trend both for their aesthetic appeal and their
    functionality are under-cabinet lights for the kitchen. These can be a great asset when you are
    using countertops for cooking and reading recipes.

    5. Holidays

    Since LED bulbs consume less electricity, this can lower the price of your electric bill at
    Christmas time. LED bulbs make perfect Christmas lights because they are made of suchdurable material, and because they were designed to thrive with increased performance
    in cold temperatures. Since they are longer lasting, you won’t have to worry about
    replacing any strings or individual bulbs each December when you drag your Christmas
    lights out of the garage.

    They are also safer to handle because they emit less heat, and they are easier to install.
    According to the National Department of Energy, up to 25 strings of LED lights can be
    connected end to end and plugged into a single socket without overloading.

    LED lighting is long lasting, durable, and energy efficient, saving you money on your electric bill
    in the long run. With so many customizable options, there are LED lights perfect for every
