LED GX53 disc bulbs have been designed as an alternative to CFL and similar bulbs. They use up to 50% less energy than fluorescent equivalents and typically last twice as long; on average 15,000 hours. This low-profile style of bulb provides instant start up without any frustrating warm-up time. They are ideal for use in cupboards, display cabinets, and work surfaces. The benefits of LED lighting are vast and include lower energy consumption and less frequent replacement and maintenance over time. As LEDs don’t contain mercury and they are much easier to dispose of, many can be recycled at the end of their lifetime, which is better for the environment.
