We recommend the use of LED light bulbs for all enclosed light fixtures like his one.The LED, or light-emitting diode, is essentially a miniature light source incased in a plastic lens. LEDÂs produce light when electrons inside the diode, excited by the flow of current, release energy in the form of light photons. LED lighting is ultra-compact and dramatically more efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs Â up to 85% more efficient Â and over 10% more efficient than compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLÂs). And, because LED bulbs are based on solid-state lighting technology that emits light from a chip, they produce minimal heat and there is no filament to burn out, as with incandescent bulbs. Nor do they contain mercury and other toxic material.
