LED is Instant ON - No waiting for light
LED lamps switch ON and OFF instantly and are flicker free – There is no warm up time unlike many CFLs
LED is Mercury free - Unlike CFL
A small amount of Mercury is used in CFL bulbs. Any reduction in the use of Mercury will benefit the environment.
LED lamps look the same as "traditional" lightbulbs
You may have seen early "Generation 1" LED lamps that looked more like an alien spaceship than a lightbulb, however, there have been massive advances in LED design so that now LED lamps look nearly identical to the filament and halogen bulbs that you want to replace.
LED gets the green light - More light with much less energy
Over the lifetime of an LED product, less electricity and replacement products are used; saving even more energy in transportation, packaging and maintenance when compared to conventional lamps. All this adds up to lower CO2 emissions, a win-win for you and the environment. As LED lamps are very efficient, they are the perfect product to compliment renewable energy sources such as solar panels or wind power.
LEDs run cooler and can be safer
LED lamps run much cooler than traditional halogen lamps and can be less of a hazard (please consult a qualified electrician for fire safety regulations in your area). Halogen lamps are an inefficient way to heat a space. Using LED will allow a heating or air-conditioning system to run more effectively. When lamps run cooler they minimise the deterioration to light fittings, shades and decoration which can occur with hot lamps - so your light fittings will last longer.
LED is fun
The range of LED products is increasing and products like LED strips that can change colour and brightness make it easier to produce light effects almost anywhere.
LED is the future - and it's bright
Millions of dollars are being spent on research and development to make LED products even more efficient for the future. The low power and weight features of LED products make it ideal for new types of lighting such as LED strips, downlights and luminaires that are available now. LED products are also being integrated into control systems that can be remotely controlled by smartphones and tablets.
