Will LED Lights Save Money?The most frequently asked question in home lighting solutions is, "Will LED lights save money?" The answer is that LED lights consume around £80.00 of power over a 20+ year lifespan. CFL bulbs consume in excess of £120.00 over the same period, and must be replaced every 5,000 hours. This gives LED lights the edge when it comes to net savings on both energy and lifespan. Switching your standard light bulbs to LED bulbs can save you money. The savings claims you see on websites like ours are of course based on averages and assumptions; but can you calculate how much you will really save by switching to LED lighting? This rest of this article provides the answer.
How LED light bulbs save you moneyThe cost saving provided by LED lighting is due to two factors:
- LEDs require much less electricity to power than both traditional incandescent and halogen light bulbs, and energy efficient light bulbs (CFLs).
- They last much longer than their incandescent, halogen and CFL equivalents.
