Did You Know? A Little EDU About LEDs

LED bulbs are very similar to traditional incandescent bulbs in terms of usability but differ in technology and some features. Here’s a breakdown to ease your transition:


  • Same Base Types: Most LED bulbs come in the same screw-in base types (e.g., A19, E26) as traditional bulbs, so they’ll fit into your existing light fixtures.
  • Similar Brightness Options: LEDs are available in a variety of wattages that correspond to the brightness of traditional incandescent bulbs. You can easily find an LED bulb that provides the same level of light output as the incandescent bulb you’re replacing.
  • Instant On: Like incandescents, LED bulbs typically turn on instantly at full brightness.

Differences to Consider:

  • Higher Upfront Cost: LEDs tend to have a higher initial cost than incandescent bulbs. However, their longer lifespan and energy efficiency usually balance this out over time.
  • Light Color: Traditional incandescent bulbs emit a warm white light. LEDs come in a variety of color temperatures, including warm white, cool white, and daylight. Make sure you choose an LED with a color temperature you find pleasing for the room.
  • Dimming: Not all LED bulbs are dimmable. If dimming is a feature you want, ensure you choose bulbs specifically labeled for dimming and use them with compatible dimmer switches.
  • Heat Output: LEDs emit very little heat compared to incandescent bulbs. This can be a positive or negative depending on your needs. In a cold climate, you might miss the slight warming effect of an incandescent bulb.

Traditional incandescent bulbs waste a significant amount of energy compared to LEDs. Here’s how LEDs translate to energy savings in your home:

  • Efficient Light Production: LEDs use semiconductors to convert electricity directly into light. Incandescent bulbs, on the other hand, rely on heating a filament to create light, wasting a lot of energy as heat.
    LEDs are significantly more energy-efficient, using up to 80% less energy than incandescents for the same level of brightness. This translates to lower electricity bills and a reduced environmental impact.

  • Targeted Light Emission: LEDs emit light in a specific direction. This reduces the need for reflectors or diffusers that can trap light in traditional bulbs. In your home, this translates to less wasted light and more efficient illumination.

  • Minimal Heat Generation: Unlike incandescents, LEDs produce very little heat. This is a big advantage as you’re not paying to heat up your surroundings along with lighting them. In hot climates like Arizona, this can be especially beneficial as it reduces the load on your air conditioning system.

  • Long Lifespan: LED bulbs last significantly longer than incandescent bulbs, typically lasting 25,000 to 50,000 hours compared to just 1,000 hours for incandescent. This translates to fewer bulb replacements needed, reducing overall energy consumption associated with bulb production and disposal.

  • Versatility: LED lights come in a wide variety of styles, colors, and brightness levels, making them suitable for various lighting applications. They can also be dimmed more effectively than traditional bulbs.

  • Safety: LEDs contain no mercury, unlike some fluorescent bulbs, making them a safer and more environmentally friendly choice.

So, by using LEDs in your home, you’re essentially using less electricity to achieve the same level of brightness. This translates to lower electricity bills and a smaller environmental footprint.

Common LED Terms And Their Definitions:

A semiconductor device that converts electrical energy into light. When an electric current passes through the LED, electrons recombine with holes, releasing energy in the form of light. LEDs are known for their energy efficiency and long lifespan.

An electronic component that allows current to flow in one direction only. An LED is a special type of diode that emits light when current flows through it.

A unit of measurement for the total amount of light emitted by a source. A higher lumen rating indicates a brighter light.

A measure of how efficiently a light source converts electrical power (watts) into visible light (lumens). LEDs generally have a higher luminous efficacy than incandescent or fluorescent bulbs.

A unit of luminous intensity that refers to the strength of light in a particular direction.

Measured in Kelvin (K), color temperature describes the color of light emitted by an LED. Lower color temperatures (around 2,700 K) produce a warm white or yellowish light, while higher color temperatures (around 6,500 K) produce a cool white or bluish light.

The tiny semiconductor component at the heart of an LED that generates light.

An electronic device that converts AC (alternating current) to DC (direct current) and regulates the current supplied to the LED.

The gradual decrease in light output of an LED over time.

The process of sorting LEDs into groups based on their color temperature, brightness, and other characteristics.

The ability to adjust the brightness of an LED light source.

The length of time an LED can operate while maintaining a specified level of brightness. LEDs are known for their long lifespans, typically lasting tens of thousands of hours.

Flexible circuit boards containing multiple LEDs, often used for decorative or accent lighting.

A type of LED package that is designed to be mounted on the surface of a printed circuit board.

An LED package that integrates multiple LED chips directly onto a substrate.
