Do LED lights heat up a room?
With all the hype surrounding their efficiency, you might consider if an LED light will make a room hotter. However, the answer is no. LED light bulbs will not cause an increase in room temperature because of their high efficiency. Because they are highly efficient, much less energy is transformed into heat.
Why do LED lights make me hot?

The bulb contains components that change your home’s high voltage electricity to the lower voltage needed by the LED chips. Due to this, LED lights are more sensitive to heat compared to other types of bulbs.
