Did you know that the average light in your home costs you about $40 per year to run? But if you switch to an energy efficient LED lighting system, each energy saving light could be costing you as little as $10 a year to run. That’s an annual savings of 75 percent off the cost of running each and every light in your home. Savings could be as high as 88% depending on the type of lights you choose.
Energy efficient lights save you money by utilising Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology, which generates less heat than traditional Halogen globes, making the LED lights more efficient and energy saving. Energy efficient light globes also have a lifespan of more than 20 times longer than Halogen lighting. So not only will you enjoy a reduced electricity bill, but you’ll have to deal with far fewer annoying globe changes.
Changing to sustainable, energy efficient lighting is quicker and easier than you might think, with new LED lights designed to fit into your current light fixtures. At SolarSwitch, we’re the experts in the installation of energy efficient lighting.
