LED (light-emitting diodes) lights are a smart solution for lighting our homes, and the best LED bulbs help us save energy (and therefore money) in the long term. 

LED lights consume far less energy than traditional light sources (such as incandescent or compact fluorescent light bulbs), but they are able to emit the same brightness. This is because of their excellent thermal efficiency, removing heat through heat sinks to prolong the life expectancy of the bulb.
