What are the benefits of LED Lighting?
There are huge financial, environmental and practical benefits to switching to LED Lighting. Here are the key reasons to switch to LED:
- Long Life. Switching to LED Lighting can last up to 10 x longer than a standard halogen lamp saving you money. Their long life means that the number of LED lights that need to be produced compared to conventional light bulbs is massively reduced.Saving you on replacement costs and helping the environment
- Energy Efficient. Compared to standard bulbs which operate at a 20% efficiency rate and lose 80% of their energy to heat, LED lights operate at 80% efficiency and lose only 20% to heat. Therefore, to replace a traditional 60W bulb you need just a 6W LED bulb. With LED lighting being so energy efficient, you use less electricity some experts suggest you could save around £240 a year in energy costs.
- Environmentally Friendly. LED lighting doesn’t contain all the types of harmful chemicals that conventional fluorescent lighting bulbs contain. They can also be recycled when they do eventually need to be replaced.
The versatility and efficiency of LED lights have caused a surge in popularity both domestically and commercially, they are so popular that experts have predicted by 2030, LEDs will account for as much as 75% of all lighting sales.
