In the past, LED downlights have had a reputation for being overly expensive and not necessarily worth the price. You would have to pay to completely replace your incandescent light bulbs with them, which is seen as the only way you might be able to save enough money to notice a difference in your electrical bills. But now that LEDs are cheaper than ever there has never been a better time to make the change!
How Can LED Downlights Save You Money?
Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have been criticised in the past for the ‘weak’ or ‘cold’ quality light they seem to emit. These concerns have vanished as LEDs have become more and more efficient, now easily matching traditional light bulbs in terms of light output without suffering from the same issues as incandescent bulbs do.
Early generations of LEDs were disliked for emitting more of a blue white colour than the warm yellow colour of incandescent bulbs that many people had grown accustomed to. New models are easily able to match that familiar colour amongst hundreds of others. LEDs are much easier to make into different colours than old-fashioned bulbs, which needed to be actually coated with a non-flammable substance in order to emit any other colour than the familiar yellow.
Now that LEDs have matched, and in many cases surpassed, incandescent lights, there is absolutely no reason not to change your home lighting over to more modern equivalents. LEDs typically tend to last about the same time as 40 incandescent light bulbs would, so even if the original price of installing LED downlights into your house makes you wonder if the adjustment is worth it, just think of all the money you’ll be saving on bulbs alone. Along with all the irritating labour you’ll be avoiding by not having to change the bulb 40 times, when you could only do it once, you’ll be saving money too!
Of course, LED downlights also have the advantage of being much less visible than traditional light bulbs, even though they produce the same amount of light. Seeing as they offer a much more directional kind of light, as compared to the omni-directional light of halogen bulbs, and because they are much smaller, they are easily concealable in ceilings, walls or even the floor of rooms or hallways, enabling you to avoid the ugly, bulbous protrusion traditional light fittings are guilty of and, instead, enjoy a sleek and contemporary decor.
