I've just blogged about switching over to LED lighting as a simple, cost-effective way of saving energy and money on your lighting bills, as well as reducing your carbon footprint. I was really surprised to see the wide range of types of bulbs on offer, as well as quite how much you can hope to save.
Did you know?:
You could save £9.15 per month by swapping 12 standard 50W halogen light bulbs to LEDs – that’s a massive £2,550 over the bulbs’ lifespan!
LEDs last 25-30 years and won’t fade over time, break or burn out like most other bulbs
LEDs use 90% less energy than traditional incandescent lights
A typical home switching all its halogen lights to LED equivalents could also save a staggering 6 tonnes of CO2
I'm pleased to have a £60 voucher for LED Hut to give away to one Madhouse Family Reviews reader. This should be plenty for switching at least one typical room over to LED light bulbs.
