LED light bulbs are an absolute game-changer. Traditional light bulbs, incandescents and fluorescents, were pretty much disposable.
You’d buy one for a few quid, and it’d last you for about a month before conking out. Then you’d throw it away and fit another one. Rinse and repeat.
Fluorescent bulbs last far longer, but they’re not exactly pretty. Office strip lighting isn’t on many interior designers’ moodboards.
LED bulbs have both of them beat, though. They last for an average of 35-50,000 hours. That’s three to five years.
They also generate a far more pleasing glow than fluorescents, which can be headache-inducing.
They also run cooler than other light bulbs, generating very little heat. By contrast, incandescent bulbs release 90% of their energy as heat, and fluorescent bulbs are little better.
LED bulbs are better for the environment. It’s that simple.
And they’re better for your bottom line, too.
While an LED bulb might be pricier than an incandescent bulb, you can expect to go through as many as 60 over the course of a single LED bulb’s lifetime.
Multiply that figure for each and every light fitting you have, and that adds up fast.
So, you’re saving money and saving the world by moving from incandescent and fluorescent bulbs to LEDs. It’s a no-brainer.
