The home lighting market is exploding.
And for a lot of people, the only way to make it work is to invest a lot more money in lights.
The average cost of a bulb in 2018 was $1,500, according to research firm IHS Markit.
But LED lights are more affordable.
So why should you invest that much money?
To start, LEDs are safer.
They emit less carbon dioxide and heat than incandescent bulbs, which are not the safest types of lighting.
LED bulbs emit fewer pollutants, according a 2015 study by the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
They also don’t require batteries.
The average lifespan of a LED bulb is four to five years, compared with five to 10 years for incandescents, according an IHS report.
That means a new home bulb can last much longer than an existing one, depending on the type of light used.
And there are a lot fewer things to worry about when it comes to LED lights.
They have a lower energy intensity than incandsescent bulbs and they don’t emit dangerous chemicals.
They can also be made in smaller quantities than traditional bulbs.
But the bright lights can also cause problems.
LEDs emit a large amount of ultraviolet light, which is harmful to the skin.
And a recent study by researchers at Duke University and the University oncology at Mount Sinai in New York found that the chemical in LED bulbs can cause skin cancer.
The problem isn’t limited to the United States.
Other countries with widespread use of LED bulbs are experiencing similar problems.
In Europe, an estimated 1.7 million people have been exposed to LED lighting in homes, according the European Union’s Office for the Prevention of Environmental Health Hazardous Chemicals.
In Canada, an estimate of 1.2 million Canadians have been affected by indoor LED lighting, according Health Canada.
The United Kingdom has also seen an increase in the number of LED-related health problems.
An estimated 2,400 deaths have been linked to LED light-emitting devices in the past year, according NHS England.
In Europe, some countries have already banned LED bulbs from public places and buildings.
Others are considering legislation that would ban them from most homes.
And the U.K. has some other laws that could impact the industry: Home-based LED lighting can’t be installed on balconies or on a roof, while it can be installed in a bedroom or in the garage.
If you’re concerned about the safety of your home, don’t use a new LED bulb.
It may cause more problems than it solves.
