LED (light emitting diode) light fixtures produce light approximately 90% more efficiently than their incandescent ancestors. That is huge! They also last far longer. Rather than “burning out” once their life expectancy is up, LEDs tend to dim slowly over time. LED bulbs typically last between 15,000 and 50,000 hours. For comparison, the life expectancy of a halogen bulb is 1,000 to 4,000 hours, and a CFL (compact fluorescent lamp) approximately 6,000 hours. While LED bulbs are typically more expensive to purchase, they are cheaper in the long run, especially when considering labour/maintenance costs.
Not all LEDs are equal. They are not currently regulated for energy efficiency or other features such as colour temperature. There may be a noticeable variation in their performance. Compatibility issues are also common. Low voltage down lights require their transformer replaced or removed before replacing the halogen lamp with an LED one. This is a job for a licensed electrical contractor. Contact us today for a free quote to upgrade your lighting system to LED.
