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!
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
|Current Lamp Wattage (Incandescent lamp)||60 W|
|No. of hours on per day||10|
|x 365 days||219,000|
|x 12p kWh pence per hour cost **||total/1000 (£26.28 per year)|
|Low Energy Wattage (LED lamp) *||5 W|
|No. of hours on per day||eg.10|
|x 365 days||18,250|
|x 12p kWh pence per hour cost **||total/1000 (£2.19 per year)|
|Current price per annum||£26.28|
|New price per annum||£2.19|
|Annual saving per lamp||£24.09|
* based on 5 watt low energy LED lamp and a 60 watt traditional incandescent household lamp
