With all their advantages over traditional bulbs, LED lights are going to continue to be more common. LEDs have grown in popularity in recent years, and have continued to become more versatile as technology advances. While they certainly can be found in homes and businesses, there is no reason you can't upgrade the lighting for your RV as well. Many bulbs can be retrofitted into existing fixtures, making it easier to implement the change.
The longer life span is one
of the major features of using LED lights. Even though they can initially cost more than their incandescent counterparts, the years of use they can provide makes them more cost effective in the long term.
When they do reach the end of their usefulness, they simply start to fade rather than instantly going out. Another big advantage of LEDs you may have heard about is the energy efficiency. An LED bulb will only use a fraction of the power that traditional bulbs use, conserving more power. This can prove to be very useful when you are traveling in your RV and may need that extra bit of power.
Safety is always important, especially if you have children with you. To that end, the fact that LEDs generate less heat may also be a deciding factor if you are on the fence about converting. A standard bulb often becomes too hot to the touch, especially if it's been on a long time. This can lead to discoloration or even cause damage to the shade or fixture you place over the bulb. An LED light is able to keep itself cooler using a heat sink that can take in and disperse the heat.
This makes them safer to handle and helps preserve your light shades or other fixtures as well!
LEDs are being made in more styles and with more color options than they used to. This includes more than just the normal standard base bulbs. Examples include vanity lights for your bathroom, lights with a G4 base, and tube lights that can replace the fluorescent bulbs found in your motorhome. Besides color options, LEDs can also fit a range of white light options, indicated by their color temperature. The lower color temperature ranges have more of a yellow tinted base, while the higher ranges are more blue tinted.
