How To Improve Your Home Lighting With LED

There are some enormous benefits for installing LED lighting into your home, in style and savings. Today, we’re going to look at some of those benefits close up - and perhaps you might consider making some changes in your home.

 

Why LED?

To put it in simple terms, LED lighting gives you more options. They last longer than traditional bulbs, and they are very much the future of home lighting. There is an increasing desire from the general public to replace their standard bulbs with LEDs, so try it out if you want to keep up with the Jones’s!

Financial Benefits

LED lights are more expensive than standard bulbs, and it will take some investment to kit out your house with a new system. However, this investment will soon pay you back - and more. LED bulbs use 80% less energy than halogen lamps, and you can expect to save anything upwards of £70 over the life of the bulb. Now, that might not seem much on its own, but if you have LED bulbs everywhere? Those are some significant savings.

Energy Savings

Halogen and standard bulbs waste a lot of their energy by producing heat - which is why they are so hot when you touch them. LED lights don’t have that problem. The vast majority of the energy used is for producing the light, not excessive heat. It makes LED bulbs a more efficient way of lighting your home.

Choosing The Right Lights

There are plenty of options out there with LED lighting. You can get dimming bulbs, different colours, or standard daylight options. So, you can go to town with your designs, and bring some stunning effects into play - different for every room. For example, perhaps you enjoy relaxing with red or mellow blue lighting. All you would need to do is mix things up a little with your bulbs. For example, you could have several switches installed, and you can then choose the lights to go with your current mood.

Installation

We recommend that you have a professional come in and install your LED lighting, as it is a tricky - and dangerous - business. Unless you have a background in working with electrics, it’s best to hand over the reins to someone else. That said, most LED kits come with clear instruction with what you need to do. Most kits have a socket adaptor and ‘leaf springs’. These are the connections that hold up your lights. Once you have everything in place, changing your LED bulbs is a simple task.

Maintenance & Added Benefits

Once your lights are in, maintenance is easy. It’s a simple case of changing your bulbs as and when they run out. There are also some added features that you can include with your lighting package. Motion sensors, for example, can turn on your lighting when you walk into a room. You can also have more control over the grouping of your lights, for more waste reduction.

So, now you know about all the benefits of LED lighting, are you ready to make the switch? Let us know your thoughts on home lighting in the comments section below.
