Turn On The Sunshine: Why LED Lighting Makes Us So Happy

In your home or your business, LEDs bring endless possibilities to light. Here are just a few of the ways switching to LED lighting can brighten your day.

Color me happy.

Fluorescent lighting is infamous for its harsh hospital room glare. LEDs are available in custom color temperatures, so you can have sunshine in your kitchen, cool crisp light in your workspace, and warm candlelight in your dining room. If you want to get colorful, RGB LEDs give you a full spectrum of possibilities.

It’s getting hot in here.

So get rid of those ancient bulbs! Incandescent bulbs waste 80% of the energy they use, converting it into heat instead of light. Fluorescent tubes (and their little friends the CFL bulbs) are slightly less wasteful, but still pale in comparison to the efficiency of LEDs– they only waste 20% of the energy they use, and only ever become warm to the touch. A lower power bill and lower risk of burns and fire? Yes, please.

Mercury makes us madder than a hatter.

Fluorescent bulbs contain mercury and must be handled with care in the event of breakage. LEDs are cleaner, greener, and more durable. There’s no glass to break and no worries.

What’s that noise?

You know, that noise. The sound of your fluorescent tubes. These cranky old bulbs can intermittently crackle and pop like breakfast cereal. Worst of all, they emit a constant low buzzing sound that only gets worse as they age. Upgrade to LED lighting and enjoy the sweet sound of silence.

How about a little mood lighting?

CFL bulbs don’t work well with dimmer switches. Conversely, many LED products on the market are specifically designed to dim. Try them in a warm white color temperature and fall in love with your lighting.

The outdoorsy type.

CFL bulbs have a hard time turning on in colder temperatures, and can take a while to warm up to full brightness. LEDs are there for you even on the coldest nights– they turn on instantly in any environment.

How we love LEDs, let us count the ways: they’re cool, clean, green and quiet. Durable, versatile and dimmable. Switch to LED lighting and make any place your happy place.
