The LED light, or light-emitting diode, may prove to be the most cost- and energy-efficient light available.
Discovered over a century ago, this proton-emitting bulb began to receive more attention and experimentation in the 1960s and 70s,
which then LED to the many uses it has today. As various industries and researchers continue to uncover its advantages,
it could eventually become the standard for home and office lighting.
It's likely that you're already familiar with LED lights, as they provide the soft glow that's visible in everyday
electronic devices such as laptop keys and remote controls.
Yet they are also used in brake lights, turn signals, outdoor street signs, and in countless other places and gadgets.
Unlike standard light bulbs, they don't require colored filters to emit assorted shades of the rainbow--
they do this naturally from differing levels of energy.
They are ideal for electronics because of their reliability and availability in incredibly small sizes, but they are also suitable
for actual illumination in indoor and outdoor areas, too.
While their initial cost may appear to be too much in comparison to fluorescent and incandescent lighting options,
one must consider its eco-friendly features and long-term cost benefits to see the full pricing picture.
A fluorescent bulb burns out in approximately one-third of the time of an LED light, and the lifespan of an
incandescent bulb may be as much as fifty times shorter.
Frequent cycling of traditional lights further shortens their lifespan as well, which is not an issue with LED.
While you never know when your standard home or office light will burn out, either, an LED light dims slowly over a long period of time.
Without high levels of heat radiation and toxic materials such as mercury, it may also be the safer option.
LED lights are most reliable in cooler temperatures, though they may need more upkeep if outdoors in winter weather because their
low heat emissions may not melt the snow and ice.
High temperatures such as overheating in electronics can lead to failure as well, but overall they are consistent with proper care.
Because LED light brightness is not based on kilowatt energy, its use greatly reduces CO2 emissions.
A full change from incandescent to LED light in your home or office could reduce the structure's carbon footprint
from electricity by over fifty percent. The savings to your wallet and the environment from long-term use could deem it a
better option than either fluorescent or incandescent lighting.
