Save Money on Your Energy Bill
It might surprise you to find out that non-LED lightbulbs work more like electric heaters. When switched on, they generate heat and only a very small amount of that heat energy is turned into light (around 10%). This means that the money you spend powering a non-LED light is technically being spent generating heat energy you’re not even using. LED lightbulbs, on the other hand, do not need to generate heat in order to emit light, meaning that any energy used to power them is being directly converted to light.
LED’s also last a lot longer than other lightbulbs. In fact, a good LED will come with at least a five-year warranty. LED’s low energy use and longer lifespans make them the ideal choice for homeowners who are looking to save money on their bills and don’t want to go to the trouble of frequently changing their lightbulbs. A correctly tailored LED lighting upgrade by Griff Services Ltd can save you up to 90% on your energy bill.
Protect the Environment
LED lights are often referred to as ‘energy efficient’ since it takes much less energy to power them than other lightbulbs. Alongside the benefits of saving you money on your energy bill, their reduced demand for electricity helps decrease greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, certain other types of lighting use toxic elements such as Mercury to power them. These types of lights cannot be recycled and will contaminate the environment when disposed of in landfill waste.
Finally, because LED lightbulbs last much longer, they need fewer replacements over their lifespan. Fewer replacements means less demand on manufacturers which reduces the amount of emissions generated in the manufacturing and transportation process and decreases the amount of packaging materials needed.
LED lighting is the perfect choice for the environmentally conscious homeowner who’s looking to save money on their energy bill. If you power your home using renewable energy such as solar power, then you can completely eliminate any emissions generated by lighting your home.
