A small guide on how to save money by using LED Lights for your home or business.
If your electric bills are too high and your looking to save some pounds, LED lights are a must have for your home or business in 2015! LED’s are everywhere you go these days and more often or not you don’t even realise or know they are there. Commercial or domestic use, LED’s can be placed in walls, floors, ceilings and even behind furniture for the ultimate mood setter.
Surprisingly cost effective, LED lights have a lifespan of around 20 odd years. Wouldn’t that be great to have lights that outlive your children’s ‘stay at home’ dependence? By the time they leave, you can start looking and purchasing many new colours and verities to suit your new ’adult only home’ or to even give your business a well needed revamp. So why choose LED lights? Well let’s get down to the jargon and science!
Brightness on LED’s are a little different to brightness on a normal bulb due to watts. Something we all like to keep an eye on when shopping for yet another ‘blown’ bulb. Most of you may know that checking out the watts on a light bulb isn’t checking to see how bright it will be, but is in fact a good indication on how much energy you will be using and how much it will cost you. But the great factor about LED’s is that they draw less energy and, putting 2 and 2 together.....’Cha-ching!’

Did you know LED’s use almost 90% LESS energy than a normal incandescent bulb!!
Without going through the subjects and boring you now with a maths lesson, a 60-100 watt bulb (incandescent) is equivalent to an 8 to 12 watt LED bulb. The easy way to call this process of converting one to the other is Lumens. The higher number or lumens, the brighter your effect. Below you can see a chart explaining this in picture form!
Let’s have a little look at colours! As you can see by the locks online range, LED lights can express many different colours to suit your needs. This is a fantastic way to incorporate your colour scheme from your business to entwine with changing rooms, pay stations or just general lighting itself. That’s not to say when you’re at home enjoying dinner, you will feel like you’re in your local club or at the fair! The range of colours for LED’s are vast from red and blues, to soft yellows and whites. So where can you put LED lights? Almost anywhere to be honest. Remembering that LED’s do not get as hot as incandescent bulbs, I am not recommending you place them in confined or enclosed spaces. You can however get LED’s that are approved for smaller spaces, just ask your retailer for information.

What you must remember when shopping for LED lights is that it’s not a quick fix, cash in pocket solution, but more of a long term investment as said above. Initially the cost of LED’s are slightly higher than your usual incandescent bulbs however the life span of 20ish years will most definitely cover your costs of having to buy one every few years ensuring you save money with LED Lights. Placing these lights almost anywhere at home or in your business will guarantee satisfaction and peace of mind, knowing your investing your funds!
