LED DownLights For Homes

Should you install LED downlights for homes?  When people refer to LED's the first thing that normally springs to mind is those small lights that come in a huge range of colours used to indicate settings on devices. 

These days you get LED TV's and monitors as well. LED technologies are rapidly improving and nowadays you can simple get the LED bulbs and downlights. 

An LED downlight is capable of producing the same amount of illumination that a normal 50W halogen light would produce for only 10W. This means 5 times less energy used, 5 times more money saved on lighting bills and 5 times less harm down to the environment.

The lights in our hoses are normally halogen bulbs and most of them last for only 2500 hours before dying. LED lights can be so durable it can last for at least 25,000 hours with some capable of lasting for 50,000 hours.

They are also designed with safety in mind running significantly cooler than halogens, containing no toxic materials (like incandescent bulbs contain mercury) and have very little glass that can shatter and spread into small particles.

What often stops people from using LED downlights?

The main problem is that these lights are significantly more costly initially than normal downlights or halogens. Most LED downlights start around $40 per unit where are incandescent bulbs can be just $2 at your local electrician.

Also most people are unsure how to go about buying and installing these down lights for the homes as making such changes are often troublesome and people would rather stick with what they are most comfortable with.

Although incandescent light bulbs are other options which may be cheaper and LED lights are the most expensive in the beginning, in the long term it will certainly pay off and save you some money.

Also because of the long lifespan of LED lights such as LED down lights, LED flood lights and LED circular lights, you will almost never have to worry about replacing them or getting a professional to do it so you can possibly save yourself some money there as well.
