Homes and businesses across the country are upgraded to LED lighting to enjoy the energy savings and extended life of the bulbs. Have you thought about upgrading the lighting in your RV to LED bulbs? If this isn't something that you've considered, take a minute to read through the article below to find out why LED bulbs are a great option for your RV.
Incandescent light bulbs create light by illuminating the filament inside the bulb. When the filament breaks, the bulb no longer creates any light. The filament in the bulb is rather fragile and can get broken from jostling around during travel. The bulb that worked before you headed out for your trip may no longer work by the time you reach your destination and set up your RV for your stay. This results in premature replacement which can cost you a lot over the years.
Fluorescent lightbulbs contain mercury. When the bulb is broken, particles of mercury become airborne, and you and your family are exposed. Of course, you won't feel the negative effects of a single bulb breaking, but if the fluorescent bulbs break time and time again, you could be putting your family at risk of mercury exposure. LED bulbs don't contain any mercury, removing this risk altogether.
The brilliant light emitted by LED bulbs will fill your RV with beautiful, clean light. Things won't look yellow or dingy with LED bulbs lighting the space. Reading will be less of a strain on your eyes, and pictures won't look as dreary.
Low Energy Use
What is probably the most beneficial is the low energy use of LED bulbs. If you are using a generator to power your RV, you need to save every bit of energy possible to keep everything running smoothly while using the least amount of fuel. LED bulbs generally use 25%-80% less energy than incandescent bulbs while providing more light.
LED bulbs last longer than the average incandescent bulb. Typically, LED bulbs last 3-25 times longer than incandescent bulbs. So, although the LED bulbs cost more to buy, you will see a savings in both energy use and how soon you have to replace the bulb after it is installed.
Think about these benefits and think about what you want to do. Do you want to continue replacing burned out bulbs time and time again and refueling the generator because you didn't want to spend a little more replacing the bulbs in your RV?
