Energy Efficient LED vs. Traditional Incandescent Light Bulb

LED light bulbs are vastly superior to halogen, lasting over ten times longer while consuming 85% less electricity. This means that by opting for LED bulbs over halogen, you could save up to £300 per year on your lighting costs!

Save money on bills by switching to LED

See below an example of how much savings can be made by making the switch from a 60 watt incandescent lamp to a 5 watt LED bulb
