The best LED lamps for every room


Switch to this type of efficient lighting and get adequate lighting throughout the house.

It has been more than two years since the countries of the European Union said goodbye to halogen lamps, a lighting technology incapable of reaching the levels of efficiency and durability of the already everyday LED lamps. The latter have been gaining ground in many homes and their prices have become popular over time.

Why buy a led lamp?

They have become the most respectful with the environment and the improvement in the light bulbs they equip is continuous, in addition to achieving considerable energy savings on the electricity bill. In addition, they have a series of advantages that make them superior to the rest: they last up to five times longer (they have an average life of 25,000 hours), they do not emit heat , their ignition occurs instantly and they are resistant and silent, as indicated in the Association of Consumers and Users.

What characteristics should we look at in a led lamp?

In addition to its design and the characteristics of the rooms where we want to place them, we must take into account the quality of the LED bulb that our lamp incorporates. Among its characteristics, we can highlight the power , the light intensity , the warmth of the light and the useful life or duration. Of the latter, remember that if you used it to study or telework for about eight hours a day, you could stretch its operation up to five years.
