LED light bulbs have been around since the early 1960s, and since then they have become increasingly popular and more widely available. One of the big advantages of LED bulbs is that they last longer than incandescent light bulbs; in fact you shouldn’t have to replace one for about 7 years. That means lower energy bills, and less time spent changing bulbs. Better efficiency is another benefit, and LED light bulbs use about 90 percent less power than an incandescent bulb. LED lighting also tends to be durable, and they are also safer as they are virtually cool when touched. Different colored LED lighting is now common, making this type of lighting versatile and able to be used in almost any environment. The bulbs don’t contain any toxic chemicals and are a lot safer for the environment, something increasingly important to most of us.
