Well, there are many benefits of using LED bulbs. But the foremost among them is the low power consumption.
Here are a few advantages of LED bulbs -

1. LED bulbs are most energy efficient. They just consume 10% of what incandescent or Fluorescent lamps burn.

2. It reduces the carbon dioxide levels.

3. They are durable. You may not need to change a LED bulb in 20 years! LED bulbs offer you an astounding 30000 hours operation. Though the cost of the bulb may appear to be expensive, the fact that you will need to change them only once in a decade makes them the best bet.

4. They are small in size and can be best for areas having space constraints.

LED bulbs last longer. They are also good when it comes to price. Most of the CFL bulbs considering the cost-per-watt turn out to be cost effective. So if you are thinking about the environment-friendly bulbs then that is why you should choose the CFL or LED. However, the wattage is something to consider when purchasing the product for price. Only issue with the CFL and LED light is that it does not cover a large area.
