Several governments around the world have gradually phased out incandescent light bulbs, leading to energy efficient alternatives like LED (light-emitting diode) light bulbs taking centre stage. But it hasn’t been smooth sailing, since many consumers are still intimidated with these newer, quirkier light bulbs.

First, you need to know that LED light bulbs work the same way as any light bulb: they produce light when connected to electricity.

They are, however, more long-lived, more durable, and more importantly, more energy efficient, using up to 90 percent less energy than traditional bulb. Here are some examples of what you can do with LED light bulbs. 

General Lighting With their outstanding energy efficiency, LED light bulbs are perfect for general lighting at home, or at the office. They work the same way as any light bulb, that is, you screw them into any compatible base and switch on. But they also come with additional features, such as compatibility with dimmer switches, and even ‘smart’ features that allow the bulbs to be controlled through a smartphone. 

Outdoor Lighting The solid-state technology of LEDs makes them durable, and thus perfect for outdoor applications. And since LEDs are made of plastic parts, they last longer even under exposure to heat and rain. 

Decorative Lighting It used to be that LED bulbs could only generate a cool, bluish white glow. That’s changed today thanks to the leaps and bounds made in LED technology; now LEDs are capable of generating a wide spectrum of colours, from red, blue, to green, and yellow. These options open several doors for decorative lighting, and for us at LiquidLEDs, the sky’s the limit with what you can do with LEDs and quirky lighting themes.
