It’s tempting to continue using the same kind of lights. However, you have to consider how much energy they use, and how often they need to be replaced. LED lights are rapidly taking over the market. The switch may seem daunting with a larger upfront price tag. However, more property managers are out of traditional incandescents these days. The long-term savings are real!
Conventional bulbs are substantially cheaper for a reason. They are low-quality and have relatively short lifespans. Not to mention, they are produced with cheap, harmful chemicals.
A traditional lighting manufacturer may have relied on a business model of selling more items that are short-lived. But concerns about the effect of traditional lighting on the environment led to the development of a better way- LEDs.
At first, LEDs were costly and gave off a cold light. But now, they have become reasonably priced, casting a bright white light far superior to incandescent bulbs. An LED bulb has a higher price tag, but it shines up to 25 times longer. In many situations, you won’t have to change LED lights until 10 years after install!
More LED Light, Less Wasted Heat
LED lights use substantially less electricity.You save hundreds to thousands of dollars on your energy bill per year, depending on how many lights you have. Traditional lights turn electricity into wasted heat, producing little light with the energy you are paying for. This also strains your AC harder.
LEDs use electricity more efficiently- creating more light and less heat. They do not pose the same kind of fire hazard as traditional bulbs.
