What is the difference between LED and Incandescent lights?

Posted

One light is pretty much like all the other light, right? There are so many options for lighting your home or office that it can become confusing to choose one. However, there are some big differences between LED and your standard incandescent bulb. Let’s talk about some of those differences.

LED vs. Incandescent: What’s the difference?

While it may not seem like there any differences between LED and Incandescent lights, there are a few big distinctions. Here are some of them:

  • Cost: While the initial out of pocket costs are higher with LED lights, in the long run, they will save you time and money. LED lights have an energy savings of up to a hefty 80%.
  • Color: LED’s have long been known for their bright white, almost harsh, color. However, colors are now available that are warm and welcoming, much the same as Incandescent.
  • Lifespan: Your typical Incandescent bulb has an average lifespan of 1,000 hours, while its LED counterpart has about 25,000 hours.
  • Look: A big complaint with LED bulbs is that their corkscrew shape is off-putting to some. While unique, the shape doesn’t change the emitted light.
  • Habits: The biggest reason for people using inefficient incandescent bulbs is quite simply habit. We are all creatures of habit and fall back on those things that are familiar. With the push for energy efficiency in the last few years, LED lights are becoming increasingly popular and more widely purchased.

With so much evidence and science behind LED lighting, it’s easy to see the benefits. Other than a little more upfront cost, LED lights are more: eco-friendly, money saving, long-lasting and less temperature sensitive.
