Unlike traditional lightbulbs, that tend to emit large amounts of heat, LED's have thermal components that not only make them more energy-efficient, but safer as well.
When a lightbulb is electrically charged, it generally emits a certain amount of heat. Traditional bulbs tend to emit a higher amount of heat than the average LED lightbulb. Innovators of LED technology understand this occurrence, and have come up with a solution to high heat emissions. They are called fins!
What are Fins?
Fins are basically the outer shell of the LED lightbulb that allows for heat to be dispersed from the bulb. Incandescent lightbulbs don’t have this feature, therefore causing most of the heat that is generated to remain inside the lightbulb. Not only do LED lightbulbs generate less heat than traditional lightbulbs, they use less power as well.
