LED lighting is nothing new, its been around for many years already. But early iterations of it for residential and commercial use were problematic, and many people shied away from them for a variety of reasons, not the least of which was cost. Today, however, LED lighting has become much better and more reliable, and this has led more people and businesses to pony up the money to install them, knowing that they will recover that additional cost in savings down the line. LED lighting also provides some advantages over incandescent lighting that make it a much better choice for all sorts of lighting situations that were previously difficult to address.

LED Lighting In The Home
Perhaps the biggest issue with moving from incandescent lighting to LED lighting in the home is that the bulbs themselves needed to fit with existing fixtures. While this once proved to be a challenge, there are now plenty of LED bulbs that work well with existing fixtures and appear to be just like incandescent bulbs. Today, there are a variety of applications where LED lighting is perhaps the only option to get the job done. Accent lighting, decorative lighting, and more are new options where LED lighting makes the most sense. And remember that LED lighting uses much less electricity than an incandescent or even a compact fluorescent bulb, so the higher cost will be offset by the savings in operating it throughout the life of the bulb.
LED Lighting In Commercial & Industrial Applications
Just like in the home, LED lighting for commercial and industrial applications benefit from cost savings in the ongoing usage of the lights over traditional lighting. These LED lights tend to last much longer than traditional lighting as well, making them desirable for needing to be replaced less frequently. The average life span of LED lights is between 50,000 and 100,000 hours, yet traditional lighting is anywhere from only 1,000 hours up to 30,000 hours. This translates to YEARS of life instead of just months. Also, consider that LED lighting is an instant-on as they do not need to “warm-up” after the electricity has been turned on. There are many more positives for commercial and industrial uses of LED lighting, but they all add up to a great way to put light exactly where you need it, and how you need it.
