What Can LED Lighting Do For You?

The cost-efficiency of LED bulbs comes from their longevity and their energy-efficiency. Because they last longer than CFL and incandescent bulbs, LED bulbs do not need to be replaced as often. LEDs are reported to have an average lifespan of 50,000 hours (8,000 for CFLs and 1,200 for incandescent). Their estimated annual operating cost is $32.85, as opposed to the $76.65 and $328.59 racked up by CFLs and incandescent bulbs respectively. Because LEDs are brighter, fewer are needed to illuminate a large space, another potential source of savings.

Why They’re Brighter

It takes an estimated 5,000 lumens to reasonably light up 250 square feet. It takes an LED bulb about 4-5 watts to produce 450 lumens, whereas CFLs and incandescents require 9-13 and 40 watts respectively.

Why They Last Longer

With an estimated lifespan of about 50,000 hours, LEDs greatly outperform CFLs (8,000) and incandescents (1,200). LEDs are also generally more durable. The bulbs have shown no sensitivity to humidity or low temperatures.

Why They Save Energy

LEDs require less energy because of how they generate light. CFLs require the heating of gaseous mercury to produce light and incandescent bulbs require the heating of a wire filament. They use electricity to produce heat to produce light. With LEDs, a small amount of heat is created as a byproduct of light generation. More heat means more energy which puts LEDs at the top of the pack. LED bulbs require an estimated 329 KWh/yr, with CFLs and incandescents requiring 767 KWh/yr, and 3285 KWh/yr respectively.
