Lighting accounts for about 15-20% of global electricity consumption, meaning that about the same amount of electricity is consumed by an average household in UK. It is highly likely a large part of your energy consumption and cost to comes from your lighting.
- Converting your standard outdated lights to LED will inevitably leads to reducing of your energy cost, simply because LED lightings require less electricity to provide same amount of light.
- LED light lightings last up to 50 times longer than a traditional light lighting, so you spend far less time and money in maintenance and can reduce your stock of spare light lightings.
- Because LED lighting projects little or no IR heat in its beam, converting to LED reduces fire risk and, potentially, air conditioning costs. LED spotlights are useful for lighting heat-sensitive items such as artworks or food.
- LED lighting is resistant to shock and vibration and performs reliably at cold temperatures (typically down to -20°C).
The impact of traditional light lightings on the environment is incredible, which is why incandescent lightings are now banned in the UK. LED lighting reduces carbon emissions and does not contain harmful chemicals such as mercury.
