Frequently Asked Questions about LEDs
What Should I Need To Know About LEDs?
Not everyone fully understands just what LEDs. So they don’t know what they are capable of. Below, we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions people have involving LED lighting.
Q: What does LED stand for?
A: LED stands for Light-emitting diode.
Q: How long do LEDs last?
A: Although they have a much longer lifespan, LEDs are considered unnecessary. The average LED light lasts up to 50,000 hours. Compare that to the average 2,000 hours of traditional lighting.
Q: Where can I use LED lights?
A: LEDs can be used almost anywhere. LED replacements are already available for A-shape, PAR reflectors, MR reflectors, decorative, under cabinet, and more.
Q: What are some advantages of switching to LEDs?

Q: Why are LEDs expensive?
A: It is true that LEDs can be expensive, at first. LEDs are still new technology. Their production costs reflect that. Prices have dropped the last few years, however, and are expected to continue to drop. In the long run, though, you save more money on your electric bill by switching to LEDs.
Q: Will there be a difference between a $10 LED and a $50 LED?
A: When it comes to LED lights, quality really does matter. If you want your new LED lights to function properly, they have to be built to last. Cheaper LED lights can use cheaper components that aren’t as well made as their more expensive counterparts.
Q: Are there any tax credits, or rebates, for switching to LEDs?
A: There can be! You can always check out The Department of Energy’s website, Dsire, to see if you qualify!
