What is LED?

LED (light emitting diodes) produce light through the movement of electrons and offers a much more efficient way of producing light than other bulbs. Incandescent and compact fluorescent light bulbs look incredibly inefficient next to LED. LED bulbs use 90% less energy than traditional bulbs because they have a solid state and don’t waste energy on the movement of particles. LED has not been considered as fully developed until recently but now it can act as a low cost and low carbon substitute to traditional lighting in your home.

How LED can benefit you

LED lights can be manipulated to provide great mood setting in your home as well as spotlight lighting in specific areas of each room. They are available in both warm and cool shades, so you could opt for the warmer LED in your bedroom and the lighter shade in the kitchen. LED will also reduce your electricity bills significantly. LED lights last for years and this is no exaggeration. Here are the facts:

  • LED lights last for 30,000 hours.
  • If your teenage son or daughter leaves their bedroom light on all day everyday draining 8 hours of constant light, your LED fixture will expire in around 14 years.
  • Even if they leave their light on 24 hours a day, their bulbs will last 6 years.
  • You will save between 50% and 90% on your electricity bills depending on what you currently use.
  • There is less waste as you aren’t disposing of light bulbs all the time.

How long will it take to see a return on my investment?

It is no secret that LED is an expensive upfront cost but you will see a return on your income within about 15 months. Just to re-emphasize a fact from above: Your LED lights will last for over 14 years whereas a standard halogen bulb has a life span of just 8 months. You are likely to spend more on halogen bulbs over that 14-year span. Then there is the cut in bills. Over a 20 year period, traditional bulbs cost up to £200 more in bills to run than LEDs. You are also helping to save the environment by reducing your carbon impact.
