Benefits of LED

The LED bulb is one of the most energy efficient lighting technologies available today; paving the way for lighting in the 21st century. Thanks to it's multiple superior benefits to traditional lighting, it is fast becoming the preferred solution for everyday home use.


Top 7 Benefits of LED Lighting

 

Energy Efficient:
LED bulbs use up to 80% less energy than the standard incandescent light bulbs for the same light output. How? Because they produce almost no heat. The ability to convert energy into more light vs heat makes for a highly efficient light source and decreases the demand for electricity generation.


Long Life:

LED bulbs have an amazing life time expectation of up to 25,000 hours*. Due to their revolutionary design, they never really 'burn out'. By comparison, a standard incandescent bulb will only last up to 1000 hours. Extra-long life = less trips up the ladder to make the switch!



Eco Friendly:

LED bulbs are free of toxic chemicals such as mercury which contaminate the environment when disposed of in a landfill. They are also made from 100% recyclable materials - a great step towards our sustainable future. Check out the LedMyHome 'Incandescent Bulb Recycling Programme' to see how we play our role in the recycling & safe disposal of old incandescent bulbs after the switch.

Durable:
LED bulbs are built with sturdy, with no filaments or fragile components. They are able to withstand shock & vibration making them highly durable with less risk of breaking and the need to replace.



Save Money:

High energy efficiency and long life bulbs must have some great cost savings benefits right? Definitely! A single energy efficient LED bulb can reach electricity savings of up to $24.00 per year*. Multiply that across all household lights and see the benefits year after year. Check out the calculator below to estimate your household savings.



Colour:

For residential purposes, LED lighting has two key main ambience choices. A warm white ambience is for areas of relaxation like a lounge or bedroom. A cool white ambience is better used in areas of focus such as kitchen or bathroom. Beyond home use, LED technology can also advance to further colours such as Red, Green, Blue and Amber for special applications.



Multiple Uses:

LEDs combine all the benefits above to allow for a wide variety of different applications. This includes residential lighting, aerospace, architectural, automotive, traffic & transportation through to humble mobile phone & TV technologies. With so many choices and so many uses it’s no wonder the invention of the latest LED light bulbs won its inventors the Nobel Prize in 2014!

Calculate Your Expected Savings

Interested in the estimated savings when making the switch? Simply enter in some quick details below and the LedMyHome Benefits Calculator will do the rest!

 

LedMyHome Benefits Calculator

1. How many bulbs in your home? (hint the average 3 bedroom home has 14 bulbs)

2. On average what is the current 'wattage' you use?

Daily Usage:

1. Electricity Savings:

(Calculation based on a 0W bulb, operating 4 hours per day at 0c per KW)

0W × 0 hours ÷ 1000
= 0.0000 KW
(daily use in KW)
0.0000 KW × 0c per KW
= $0.0000
(cost of electricity per day)
$0.0000 × 365 days
= $0.0000
(cost of electricity per year)
× 0 bulbs
= $0.0000
 
Compares to incandescent
= $0.0000
 
Electricity savings per year
= $0.0000
Nice job!

2. Initial Bulb Recovery Cost:

(Calculation based on our price of $0 for a 0W bulb)

Total cost of 0 bulbs
= $0.00
 
$0.00 ÷ $0.0000
= $0.0000
 

Recover initial cost in just 0 months in electricity savings with years of benefits still to come. This is even quicker if calculating in the cost of 0 incandescent bulb purchases as well!

Recover initial costs in just 0 months!

3. Eco-Friendly Savings:

(Calculation based on an expected bulb lifetime of 25,000 hours vs 1,000 hours of incandescent)

1 LED Bulb = 25 Incandescent Bulbs
19 LED Bulb/s = 475 Incandescent Bulbs

That means an average of 475 less bulbs will enter into the landfill as a result of the switch. Additionally, the electricity savings flow on to the environment; less electricity requirement equals less demand for electricity generation.

(Please note: calculations are based on all bulbs running for 4 hours per day. This may vary from household to household.)
