One of the downsides of using incandescent bulbs is they convert a whooping 80% of energy into heat instead of light. This makes LED different. In LED, around 85% of electricity it consumes is converted into light.
3. Cost Savings
Because of its long lasting and energy efficient properties, homeowners can save a lot on lighting by using LED.
4. Nearly Zero UV Emissions
