What are the differences between LED, CFL, and Halogen lights?

1.Energy Efficiency: LED lights are the most energy-efficient of the three, using up to 80% less energy than halogen lights and 20-30% less energy than CFLs.

2.Lifespan: LED lights also have a much longer lifespan than halogen or CFL lights, lasting up to 25 times longer.

3.Heat Emission: Halogen lights produce a lot of heat, making them less efficient and potentially hazardous if they are placed too close to flammable materials. CFLs produce less heat than halogen bulbs, but still more than LEDs.

4.Light Quality: LED lights provide a higher quality and more natural light than CFLs, which can have a bluish or yellowish hue. Halogen lights provide a warm, yellowish light that is similar to incandescent lamps.

5.Environmental Impact: LED lights and CFLs are more environmentally friendly than halogen bulbs, as they use less energy and produce less greenhouse gas emissions.
