Today’s lighting strategies must include LED lighting in order to safeguard the environment and to raise our commitment to keeping this planet safe. There are so many other advantages of LED lighting that making the switch over to them just makes a lot of sense and feels natural. Here are 5 advantages of this lighting type that you simply cannot ignore:

Fire Safety

LED bulbs don’t heat up like incandescent bulbs do. If you have a toddler or even older children that are running around the house, it’s natural for a lamp to get tipped over at least once in a while. You don’t have to worry about an LED bulb causing a fire since they don’t have the same high heat source that a regular bulb does. You’ve probably seen instances where a lamp has been overturned and the shade has had a chance to turn brown or even black before you could get to it. It’s not worth the risk of fire when LED bulbs are available.

Money Saver

In today’s day and age who doesn’t want to save money? Although you will have to invest more at the beginning, over time these lights will save you a ton of money. LED bulbs will last for years and you won’t have to keep digging into your pocket to buy light bulbs any longer. When you make the switch over in one fell swoop throughout your entire home or business, you probably won’t have to come up with the funds for more light bulbs for approximately another 7 years.

Safety Features

Most people tend to turn off all of their lights both inside and outside when they go to bed. They want to save on electricity and are willing to put their security aside to save a bit of cash. With LED lights you can keep the outside lights on and even keep one glowing inside your home in order to deter any criminals that may have their eyes on your home. This applies to a businesses as well that are trying to cut corners on costs by reducing their lighting sources at night.

Put Your Ladder Away

With all of the things that you probably already have on your to-do list, wouldn’t it be nice to eliminate having to change a lightbulb? That would be especially true if the bulb is located in a hard-to-reach area. You won’t have to pull out your ladder for years when you invest in LED bulbs since they will keep burning brightly into the future.

Better Options

Quite simply you’ll have more options to choose from when you switch to LED lights. You can opt for a dimmer yellow light or a brighter white light. With incandescent bulbs, you’ll have a glowing bright white light and while you can reduce the amount of light provided by using a dimmer switch, it’s just not the same as having access to a soft yellow light.

LED lights are definitely a part of our future. To find out more about these lights and other advantages that go along with them please contact an EcoGEN consultant at (905) 282-0881 or browse through our LED Product catalogue to see the wide selection of lights we have available.
