LEDs vs Traditional Light Bulbs

LEDs vs Traditional Light Bulbs

Remember ye olden times when a light bulb would slowly flicker and burn out? 

How about having to unscrew a dusty bulb, find a replacement, and then throw the old bulb in the landfill. 

That was the past, baby. Poplight is the future. 

Much like most modern lighting, Poplight uses an LED instead of a traditional bulb. But first, let's chat a bit about what an LED even is. 

What is an LED?

LED stands for Light Emitting Diodes, a very sexy name for the most energy efficient and scientific lighting humans have as a home lighting option. 

There's a few key things about LEDs that make them superior to old school options. 

1. They are more energy efficient than traditional light bulbs. On average, an LED produces 75-80% less energy than your grandma's incandescent bulb. That's because old school bulbs produce a lot of unnecessary heat (remember accidentally touching a hot lightbulb?). LEDs don't produce and waste that kind of heat. 

2. LEDs are color customizable. That's right she's and them's, LEDs make it possible to choose funky light colors, or change color warmth. 

Poplight + LEDs

What does all of this mean for Poplight, which installs and removes in seconds on just about any wall surface?

☀️ It means your wall lighting is energy efficient.

💸 If you're using Poplight to replace old school incandescent lighting or the dreaded overhead light, you're probably saving some money on your energy bills. 

🎨 You can use the Poplight app to choose between 3 different color temperatures to make your lighting fit your space best. Read more about color temps here.
