When do LED Lights Need to be Replaced?

If you use light bulbs in your home, then you’ve probably had to change them once or twice in your life. If so, you’ll know how much of a pain it is. That’s why a lot of people are making the change to LED lights in their homes and businesses. Not only do they come with an array of features, but they also have a significantly longer lifespan than their counterparts.

Want to learn more about LEDs, including when they need to be replaced? If so, then keep reading below!

LED features

LEDs have an array of features that make them better than any other light bulb on the market. These features include:

  • High efficiency LEDs are highly efficient. They use a fraction of electricity to produce the same amount of light and they do it for much longer than any other light bulb on the market. This means they’re producing more light over time, but with far less heat.
  • Quality – When LEDs came out, they were criticized for not being “natural” enough in their color hues. That has all changed now, though.  Looking for something with cooler lighting effects, more like daylight? They exist and will bring a beautiful, contemporary look into your home. Want to go more classic with a warm, yellow tone? You can find those too. Additionally, LED light bulbs come in many different colors. There are reds, purples, blues, pinks, etc. Whatever you want, you can find it!

LED lifespan

In addition to their abundance of features, LEDs also have a really long lifespan. Did you know than an LED can last 8-10 times longer than a typical fluorescent light bulb? Their average lifespan is over 10,000 hours, which can translate into several years of constant use depending on how often you have them on. That’s pretty impressive!

When to replace LED light bulbs

So when exactly do you need to replace an LED light bulb? It’s hard to say sometimes because they’re different than any other bulb on the market. Fluorescents and incandescents will burn out and stop working completely. That’s how you know they need changing. 

With LED lights, though, they don’t necessarily “burn out.” Instead, they fade or dim until they no longer produce enough life for your taste. So, when the light in your home becomes too dim, it’s time to replace them.
