LED Garage Door Bulbs

LED as well as fluorescent light bulbs are increasingly popular among people trying to make their garages more green and energy efficient. LED light bulbs last a quarter longer than normal fluorescent bulbs and don’t break the line of communication between door remote controls and door openers. In this brief blog entry, the experts at Metro GDS Inc Gates & Garage Doors will detail some of the benefits of utilizing LED light bulbs within your garage.



Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are semiconductor bulbs that give out light when electric currents are passed through them. They are highly different than typical incandescent light bulbs that only use five percent of its energy to create light, with the rest coming out as wasted heat. LEDs are far more efficient. LEDs are available in low-output dim varieties – most often used as indicator signals in normal home electronics, or in holiday lights – as well as bright, high output varieties that are used in all purpose lighting.
