What are LED Lights?
LED light bulbs are among the longest-lasting, brightest and most energy-efficient light bulbs on the market. The LED technology keeps bulbs cool to the touch while preserving large amounts of energy.
How Long do LED Lights Last?
Compared to incandescent bulbs, an LED bulb won't burn out as quickly. These light bulbs often have a rated life of 50,000 hours, approximately 50 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs, 20-25 times longer than most halogen light bulbs, and 8-10 times longer than CFL light bulbs.
How do LED Lights Work?
LED, which stands for light-emitting diodes, is a lighting technology that absorbs the heat captured by the light bulb into a heat sink opens in new window. As a result of their unique design, LED light bulbs:
- Use less electricity than other bulbs.
- Don't contain mercury.
- Don't emit infrared or UV rays.
