What are the benefits and advantages of LED over conventional lights (incandescent, fluorescent)?

There are several advantages but these are the key benefits of LED

  1. Energy Efficient: Conventional lights lose most of their energy via heat (especially incandescent bulbs). LED reduces energy consumption significantly while supplying the same brightness.
  2. Long Life (reduces maintenance cost over time): LED 50,000-100,000 hours vs 1000 hours for incandescent bulbs or 6000-15000 hours for fluorescent.
  3. Ecologically Friendly: LED does not contain any mercury or other toxic chemicals
