Why Choose LED Ceiling Lights When Incandescent Bulbs are Cheaper?

Back to Home
When renovating your home you may ask yourself, do I really need new LED ceiling light fixtures? Why upgrade when it means I’ll be paying more? The answer is simple. Efficiency. Incandescent bulbs may be cheaper and easier to come by, but they waste a lot of electricity and energy. This is because the filament in a bulb need to be heated to produce light. LED lights, on the other hand, do not need to be heated, the electricity goes straight towards creating the light that you use in your home. Sure LED lights may be more expensive, but in the long run, they will prove to be more efficient and cost-effective. They also will lower your environmental footprint and as an added benefit, you won’t have to replace them nearly as often! So say goodbye to changing bulbs and hello to a more sustainable home.

LED ceiling lights are common consideration in home renovations projects. These lights are popular because they are sustainable, durable and energy efficient. Older homes tend to utilize incandescent bulbs, usually because of the lighting fixtures installed when the home was built would have been before LED technology was a viable option. Though incandescent bulbs can still "do the job,” and are cheaper on a whole, they have a lower longevity and waste energy by emitting it as heat.


Narrowing in on Energy Efficiency


Incandescent light bulbs contain a filament, which is the tiny wire you can see inside the bulb. This wire must be heated to produce light, which means energy and electricity is being wasted to produce light. In LED lights, the electricity goes straight towards producing visible light and they don’t emit much heat on the whole.


Though LED ceiling lights are initially more expensive, they are considered worth the investment because they prove to be more cost-effective and are far more energy efficient in the long run.
