What is LED lighting?
LED is a light-emitting diode (LED) based product that is fixed into a light bulb for use in lighting sources. They utilize less energy than CFLs, and many lighting brands claim LEDs last 20,000 to 50,000 hours. That is around 18 to 46 years when used three hours a day. LEDs light up instantly, even in sub-zero temperatures, and lifespan is not affected by regularly turning them on and off. Some of the LED light bulbs are dimmable and can replicate the ambiance of old incandescent bulbs.
