LED Lighting

Sep 27, 2013 by

With the cold weather creeping in on us all the electric bills are beginning to soar.  Everyone is feeling the pinch in their pockets and you have to try and squeeze more out of your penny! You may ask how can you save on electricity? Well the answer is energy saving LED lighting.

LED lights have a small chip which creates the light. The advantages of Led lighting are outstanding, the LED bulb lasts longer meaning less cost in the home as the bulbs wouldn’t have to be replaced as often making them earth friendly too! LED lighting requires less electricity than a standard light bulb making them more efficient and will reduce energy bills. Another advantage of LEDs is they produce little infrared light meaning it protects sensitive objects in the home.

LEDs have been around for many years and are best known for lighting things such as Christmas lights, and power on signal on devices such as our TVs and laptops. However LED lighting in our household has become more popular and is rapidly replacing standard incandescent light bulbs. The most popular LED lighting that can be seen in homes today are LED spotlights and LED floodlights.

LED lighting can use up to 80% less energy than the standard house bulb meaning a huge cut in costs and they are known in some cases to last up to 100,000 hours.  However, they do carry a disadvantage, a higher initial purchase cost, which is why at Meteor Electrical we are aiming to keep them affordable for you!
