LED stands for light-emitting diode – a semiconductor that changes electricity into light, which is done by the movement of electrons. LEDs can be put into normal lights (in this case, the traditional candle lights) and are used like most other light bulbs. They are extremely energy efficient and this is perhaps its main benefit.
LED candle lights offer a huge life-span of around 50,000 hours. When you consider that this is roughly fifty times as long as a standard candle light, you will agree that this is a huge increase. This means that you are not only cutting maintenance time considerably but also cutting costs, as you won’t need to keep buying new bulbs.
The major benefit of LEDs is that they are incredibly energy efficient, much more so than traditional light bulbs. LED Lighting is extremely energy efficient, and at a time when a major part of the political agenda is concerned with saving energy, this is a great time to play your part by investing in LED technology. Simply switching to LED lighting, rather than the more traditional lighting sources, can have a surprising impact. LED candle bulbs are 300 percent more efficient than a compact fluorescent light (CFL) and 1,000 percent more efficient than incandescent bulbs.
Low Running Costs
LED candle lights operate at just 1 Watt, meaning that your running costs will be extremely low. This is vitally important in the current climate where it is key for everyone to cut costs where they can. Electricity bills are consistently rising and investing in LED candle lights can be a great way to combat escalating costs.
LED candle lights are a direct replacement for the traditional candle lights which have proved so popular in the past, and maintain their attractive appearance. They are the same shape with a similar quality of light. Most importantly, they simply fit into your previous lamp base so there is no need to buy any extra gear. There is also a huge selection of colours so you are bound to find something to suit the style and décor of your room.
