Advantages of LED Lights The way that LEDs are made and the way this type of lighting works means it has some advantages over other types of lighting. LEDs are mounted on a flat surface, which allows it to emit a fuller light than incandescent and compact fluorescent light bulbs. LEDs do not have glass enclosures similar to other light bulbs, so there is less of a risk for breakage. It won't burn you if you touch it like what happens to a more traditional light bulb when it has been on for awhile. In fact, as the temperature of the LED light increases, it works better--emitting a brighter light.
