LED Advantages
Efficiency   Longevity  
1 LED Light Bulb and 9 incandescent bulbsLEDs are extremely energy efficient and consume up to 90% less power than incandescent bulbs. Since LEDs use only a fraction of the energy of an incandescent light bulb there is a dramatic decrease in power costs. Money and energy are also saved in maintenance and replacement costs due to the long LED lifespan.

Because of the low power usage of LEDs they are becoming extremely popular for light sources in remote areas that use solar panels.

LEDs do have a higher initial cost than incandescent and compact fluorescent light bulbs, but the cost is quickly recouped over time in lower electricity costs.

An LED lighting device can last up to 6 years under constant use. On average LED bulbs last up to 10 times as long as compact fluorescent bulbs and 133 times longer than typical incandescent bulbs.

The long lifespan of LED light bulbs will dramatically reduce maintenance costs and lower long-term operating costs when used in place of traditional incandescent bulbs and fluorescent tubes.

An LED light is a tiny chip encapsulated in an epoxy resin enclosure, which makes LEDs far sturdier than traditional incandescent light bulbs or fluorescent tubes.

Up to 50,000 hours powered 8 hours a day, Equal to 17 Year Lifespan
Up to 50,000 hours powered 24 hours a day, Equal to 6 Year Lifespan
  LEDs do not use fragile components such as glass and filaments which means LEDs are able to withstand shock, vibration and extreme temperature.

They can be left on for hours without incident or consequence. LEDs produce 3.4 btu's/hour compared to 85 btu's for incandescent bulbs.

The downside of incandescent light bulbs is they expel 90% of their energy as heat.  LED lighting reduces the potential for safety risks from burns and fires.

Because traditional incandescent light bulbs use filters to produce colors, they are extremely inefficient. LEDs can be blended to produce millions of color options and are extremely efficient.
