CFL (Compact Fluorescent Light) bulbs are a common alternative to LED lights but with time, the CFL lights start looking a little dim. CFL lights are hyper-sensitive to climate and take a long time to reach full brightness in a cold room or during cold weather.

Touching a compact fluorescent light or an incandescent bulb surface leads to burn, as the surface of these bulbs heat up when it is on. Whereas, you can simply touch the surface of an LED or you can even touch a flammable material without risking a burn, as the surface of an LED light is not hot. Instead, LED bulbs are designed to sink the heat into the back side of the bulb, which avoids the parallel of traditional light bulbs.
