In comparison to incandescent and CFL bulbs, LEDs have major advantages. Learn more about LED Lighting below.
LEDs last for 15+ years
How does changing your light bulbs every 15 years sound? The average lifespan for LED bulbs is 40,000 - 50,000 hours so, depending on daily usage, they can last up to 15 or more years. This means less time on a ladder, lower labor maintenance costs for businesses and the money you save by investing in LEDs keeps coming in.
High Quality Light
Getting the right color literature is crucial part the perfect decor. No matter how beautiful the colors you choose for your decor, they are going to look ugly under the hard light of CFL. And Incandescent lighting costs a fortune to run. LED bulbs have the ability to create the color temperature you desire, with energy savings you need. We sell LED lighting with everything between 2700K (traditional incandescent) to 3000K (halogen) to 4000K (sunlight) to 6000K (cold white).
Technology of the Future
In accordance to the Energy and Security Act of 2007, incandescent light bulbs will be phased out starting in 2012 and by 2014 they will be illegal. A popular alternative has been CFL, or compact fluorescent lamps, but they contain toxins. Currently it is illegal to throw away CFL bulbs in your regular trash bins due to chemical hazards in ten states; more states are projected to follow suit. This leaves a lone alternitive.

Cut 25% of Your Monthly Electricity Bill
In addition to all the positive aspects of LED bulbs, one of the main attractions to them is the cost savings. Not only will you be saving money on your utility bill each month because of lower energy use but the cooler bulbs will not heat up the room, thus saving on air conditioning costs. Also, avoid costly bulb replacements and paying an electrician to install new bulbs
Safe & Non-Toxic
One of the problems with CFL lighting is the extensive use of mercury in the product. Mercury has been shown to cause sever brain damage and growth defects in adults and children. Even dropping a CFL releases enough of the chemical to be dangerous. LEDs do not contain any mercury and are better for than environment.
LEDs Lower Your Air Conditioning Bill
It's hot outside. So there's no reason to have a small fire that's hot enough to make metal glow in your living room, right? But effectively, that's what you are doing every time you turn on an incandescent light in your home. In fact, a light bulb gets so hot that you can use it to cook a brownie (think Easy Bake Oven) or the inside of your house.
LED light bulbs are energy efficient for a reason.
The process an LED light uses to create light doesn't waste much energy as heat. An incandescent light on the other hand, wastes as much as 80 percent of the energy it uses as pastry-baking-temperature heat. This means not only will you save money on the lighting portion of your energy bill, but you will also save on the cost of cooling your home because they emit so little heat. Your air conditioner doesn't have to work as hard to keep your home at a reasonable temperature.
So instead of sweating it out this summer, consider replacing your lights with LEDs. If your looking for a good source, try our retail website, WholesaleLED.

How Do LEDs Work?
The LED (light emitting diode) works by using an electric current traveling through a negatively charged anode to a positively charged cathode. What is this science fiction you ask? Basically, a diode only allows an electric current to travel in one direction. This current causes electrons to recombine, which releases energy in the form of photons, AKA light.
