Here are just some of the cool characteristics of LEDs1:
Energy savings: They use at least 75 percent less energy than incandescents.
Long life, low maintenance: LED lights last 35 to 50 times longer than incandescents and about 2 to 5 times longer than fluorescents.
Directional light emission: they can direct light where it is needed. (Incandescent and fluorescent bulbs emit light – and heat – in all directions, which is wasteful.)
Size advantage: LEDs can be very compact and low-profile.
Durable: unlike bulbs, they have no breakable glass or filaments.
"Instant on": LEDs require no warm-up time.
Their small size and ability to direct light, in particular, make LEDs ideal for task lighting.
