LED lights reduce your energy usage, will cut down your electricity bills and a high quality LED will brighten up your house for up to 20 years.
Most people don’t know, but inefficient lighting can contribute to over 30% of a household’s electricity bill. By replacing the traditional lightbulb with an energy efficient and cost-effective Light Emitting Diodes (LED) lights, you can reduce ongoing electricity bills and your carbon footprint.
This table below shows the energy used (in watts) to achieve the same brightness (lumens). The more lumens, the brighter your light is.
|Energy usage conventional lightbulb||Brightness (Lumens)||Energy usage LED light|
|150 W||2600 lm||25-28 W|
|100 W||1600 lm||16 – 20 W|
|75 W||1100 lm||9-13 W|
|60 W||800 lm||8-12 W|
|40 W||450 lm||9-11 W|
The new, energy-efficient LED lights operate at much lower temperatures than halogen lamps, are more durable and only use a fraction of the energy.
