Why We Recommend LED lamps

By now, most of us have heard that LED lamps are a highly efficient alternative for our homes and businesses, surpassing CFLs (Compact Fluorescent Lamps) and incandescent bulbs. But did you know that LEDs offer other great benefits?

  • Because LEDs don’t have filaments that can break from vibration, they are hardier and resist breakage.
  • Unlike fluorescent lamps, LEDs love the cold and perform well even in extremely cold temperatures.
  • LEDs are dimmable, again unlike CFLs, and many can be dimmed using standard dimmers.
  • Unlike halogen, fluorescent and incandescent light, LEDs┬ádon’t emit harmful UV rays and therefore won’t cause fading to interior furnishings and artwork.
  • LEDs are not affected by rapid switching. Have you ever heard anyone say: “Don’t flick the switch on and off; you will kill the bulb”? With LEDs, this is not an issue.
  • LEDs contain no toxic materials that require special handling and disposal care. Unlike CFLs, LEDs do not contain mercury.
  • LEDs emit low heat while delivering high efficiency lighting. When alternative bulbs get hot, the heat is wasted energy.
