LED is highly energy efficient, Less heat, more light, lower cost
Use less electricity for the same light output – 85% less electricity when compared to conventional lighting and around 18% less electricity compared to CFL. Worldwide, around 20% of electricity is consumed in lighting. LED can make a big impact on your energy use. Savings really ratchet up in areas such as security, where lights are left on for longer periods. The average household has 24 lamp points and there is an LED alternative for nearly all of them. Businesses can make huge savings whilst being more green.
LED lamps last much longer – Saving even more
Typically LED lamps have a lifetime of 25,000 hours, that is over 22 years if used for 3 hours per day. Plus, with no filament LED lamps are more robust. This will result in you saving money on replacement lamps and building maintenance. Conventional bulbs last around 1,000-2,000 hours (1-2 years) and CFL around 6,000 -15,000 hours (6 to 13 years). The cost of LED has dropped over the last few years leading tp substantial reduction of the payback period to a few months for most lamps.
