Myth: LEDs aren’t effective.

Many industries predominantly use LEDs in their technology because these lights have been proven to work. Not only do they work well, but they also use far less power than alternative products. In fact, car manufacturers, TV makers, and industrial settings have all turned to LEDs because they can withstand a lot of abuse and keep on performing. Additionally, they never shatter and their lifespan is incredibly long.

Myth: LEDs aren’t better than any other available lightbulb.

With a long lifespan and low-energy costs, LEDs are king in the lighting industry. They can withstand a variety of harsh conditions and keep on working. In fact, many LEDs can be programmed with smart technology that can be controlled by utility companies in order to reduce energy during peak or off-hours. These smart intelligence enabled LEDs dim during these times, with a manual override option, to reduce overall energy usage. Can your current lightbulbs do that?
