LED Lights vs. Incandescent Lights
If you’re hesitant to make the switch to energy-efficient LEDs, you’re not alone. Thanks to advances in LED technology, you no longer have to sacrifice the familiar warm glow of a traditional incandescent bulb if you want to upgrade to efficient lighting. Today’s LEDs are capable of replicating the look and feel of an incandescent bulb without wasting excess energy. Not only do they take less energy to power, LEDs also last significantly longer, are more durable, and are just as cheap as a traditional bulb.
In summary, here a quick table of comparison between LED lights and Incandescent bulbs:
|Lumens per watt||Up to 130 lm/W||Up to 15 lm/W|
|Life span||25,000+ hours||1,000 - 2,000 hours|
|Has mercury||No||Yes, some|
|Durable||More durable - no filament||Easier to break - fragile filament, glass bulb|
