    Why choose LED lighting?
What they are and why they're better...
LED Lighting Maidenhead

LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology is the modern preferred choice for any light fixture for a variety of reasons.

The lights have a very distinct advantage over halogen bulbs. This article will discuss the pros and cons of using LED bulbs in your home for common use.

The key benefit of LED lighting is the low energy consumption. They're very energy efficient which means an incredible difference in power usage. The halogen bulbs consume over 7 times the energy of an LED light. This is fantastic for home owners and can save hundreds of pounds over the years.

However, as a result of the cost-effective nature of these bulbs, they are often found at a higher price to initially purchase. Switching completely to LED bulbs for the home is often a big investment. However, the process will be beneficial in the long term as the power efficiency will save you money.

LED lighting is also very beneficial due to the extended lifespan of the bulbs. In comparison to the lifespan of incandescent bulbs and other types of lighting, the LED wins by a landslide.

Filament bulbs have an average lifespan of 750 – 2,000 hours before they need to be replaced. However, the more power efficient LED bulbs often are rated to last over 50,000 hours.

LEDs can last 25x longer! This means that you wont have to replace them as often, helping you to save both money and time. LEDs last longer because they don't burn out in the same way that a traditional bulb.

"Since 1996 Active Electrical has been providing quality, trusted and proven electrical services to homes and businesses in the Berkshire area."

Comparing filament bulbs to LED

Based on the following prices, we have compared filament bulbs or their equivalent LED bulbs.

  • 40W filament bulb - £1.29
  • 5W LED - £5.40

Although the initial cost of the LED bulb is greater, they have an average lifespan of 20,000 hours, while the filament bulb is only 1,000 hours. This means that 1 of the LED bulbs would last as long as 20 filament bulbs.

Making the cost of each over 20,000 hours, £5.40 for the LED bulb, and £25.80 for the filament bulbs.
