The lighting of a home is essential - from basic illumination, beautifying homes, and all the way to enhancing ambience. But keeping your home or even office beautifully illuminated shouldn’t take a toll on your electricity bill every month.

LED lights use 50% less energy as compared to conventional fluorescent lights commonly used in homes, which also translates to great savings on electricity usage and thus, its cost.

LED lights also do not contain harmful elements like mercury, which can be found in conventional fluorescent lights. In turn, LED lights will be better for the environment as it does not become toxic waste when disposed.

Apart from that, the life span of LED lights are much longer as well, which reduces the need to replace them too often. Indirectly, this means a reduce of CO2 emissions thanks to the decreased manufacturing of the lights, their packaging, transporting etc...


Quick comparison

Here is a quick comparison of a traditional fluorescent bulb (60 watt light bulb of 800 lumens) and an LED one (of equivalent brightness):

Based on the comparisons above, a change of LED lights will save you about 54% on energy costs every year, compared to when using fluorescent lights!



Types of LED lights

LED lights have come a long way since it was first invented in the year 1907 by Mr Henry Joseph Round. Technological advancements have changed the LED light in so many ways - from a tiny speck of diode to multiple shapes and sizes, you can have LED lights in almost any type of lighting fixtures these days.

Here are some types of LED light fixtures that could be ideal for your home or office:
