General LED FAQs

What makes LED so much better than other lighting options?

LED lightbulbs create less heat, save more on electricity bills, and last longer than any other bulbs on the market.

How safe are LEDs compared to other lights?

Because they don’t give off UV radiation like some other lighting options and don’t pose the mercury problems of CFLs and fluorescents, they’re safer to use and safer for the environment.

How long do LED lights last?

LEDs have the longest lifespan of any light bulbs available today. Since they rarely need replacing, you save big on both product costs and maintenance costs.

How much energy do LED lights use?

LED lights require only 2-10 watts of electricity to operate – that’s about 80% less electricity usage than incandescent bulbs. They even use less electricity than energy conserving CFL bulbs.
