Upgrade to LED lighting and save the earth
Everyone is always looking for ways to save money and do our bit for the earth, but the simplest changes can start at home.
Take your home lighting, for example. By upgrading to LED lighting, you are doing great things for the planet, but you’ll also be saving yourself some cash. If you are considering switching your lights to LEDs in your Adelaide home, here are some things to consider.
LED lighting is better for the environment
LED lights are really popular, and it’s not just because they offer a far better quality of lighting. They are also up to 80% more efficient than traditional lighting. Because 95% of the energy in LEDs is converted into light, only 5% is wasted as heat, unlike fluorescents, which convert 95% of energy to heat and only 5% into light. In addition to that, a typical fluorescent light can be replaced by an LED light with around half the wattage and give the same level of light. By using less energy, you are decreasing greenhouse gas emissions by lessening the demand from power plants. You will also need fewer lights because LEDs are so efficient, saving power and planet.
LED lighting will save you money
LED lighting lasts longer, which means you won’t be spending money buying endless supplies of globes – in fact, they last up to six times longer than other types of lights. Of course, because you are using lesser wattage, the price of the globes is also cheaper, so choosing to change your lighting over to LED is an excellent investment. By using less energy, LEDs last 5-10 times longer than other lighting, greatly reducing replacement costs and the number of light bulbs ending up in landfill. It makes dollars and sense.
