For some time, LED lights have been known as a more energy efficient alternative to traditional lighting. Because the bulbs are more expensive than halogen and incandescent bulbs, interior LED lights are often overlooked for use in the home, but they offer a number of longterm benefits that may justify the investment.
Interior LED light adds visual interest
Adding accent light to a room is a great way to create visual interest using a low power lighting source. LED lights tend to have a longer lifespan than tradition lighting, and they are ideal for hard-to-reach places where changing a bulb frequently could be a hassle.
Because LED lights are more energy-efficient over their lifespan, they are able to make up for the initial higher bulb price. The average annual operating cost is over $300 per year for an incandescent bulb and over $75 per year for a florescent bulb. The average annual operating cost for an LED light, on the other hand, is less than $35 per year.
LED lights are used almost exclusively in high-end bars, restaurants, hotels, malls and airports, and they are increasingly being used in homes as well.
Color temperature range
Interior LED lights have a greater color temperature range than incandescent, halogens, and CFLs, which allows for better selection and control over your interior. Color temperature range refers to the coolness or warmth of light. Light can mimic daylight, be a cool white, a warm white or one of many other temperature colors. The color temperature of the light in an interior will directly affect the warmth and overall feel of the space.
Interior LED light form variations
Because LEDs rely on crystals and not gas or a vacuum, they can be manufactured into many different shapes and sizes. LEDs can be purchased as tubes, pots, and panels. They can also be manufactured into flexible strips that are often used to illuminate edges and corners or even circled around an object. They are also made into lighting tiles that can be sprinkled through a ceiling design to create a starry sky effect.
Because of the superior design and manufacturing options available with LED lights, they can be made into forms that simply aren’t available with other lighting options.
