Debunking Misconceptions About LEDs


In recent years, LED lighting has gained immense popularity for its energy efficiency and longevity. However, with popularity comes myths and misconceptions. At Alloy LED, we strive to be a resource for our customers to make informed decisions when choosing lighting solutions. Let’s dispel a few myths!

Myth 1: LED Tape Lights are Expensive.

Reality: LEDs are more cost-effective compared to traditional light bulbs. Our tape lights consume significantly less energy, leading to low electricity bills and a longer lifespan of 50,000+ hours, ultimately saving you money over time.


Myth 2: LED Tape Lights Don’t Offer Warm Lighting

Reality: Our LED tape lights come in a variety of color temperatures. You can choose the warmth that suits your preference best!


If you are looking for a warm output, consider using color temperatures ranging from 2000K-3000K. For a neutral and balanced light, opt for color temperatures between 3500K and 4000K. For a modern and cool ambiance, choose color temperatures from 4000K up to 5000K.

Take it a step further by filtering the inputenvironment, and max run length! We offer the largest selection of 95+ CRI LED tape lights on the market today backed by our guarantee of satisfaction. With plenty of options, we know you’ll find the perfect fit!


Myth 3: LED Tape Lights Can’t be Dimmed.

Reality: Many LED tape lights are dimmable. However, it’s crucial to use compatible dimmer switches to ensure optimal performance. We have partnered with Casambi to offer a full range of compatible dimmers that can be controlled by Bluetooth!
