The Big Energy Saving Week

LEW Electrical Distributors are celebrating The Big Energy Saving Week, a national campaign helping raise awareness of how people can reduce their energy bills by switching to a cheaper energy supplier and by making their homes more energy efficient. This week we’ll look in to the benefits of making the switch to LED lighting and how this could impact your annual energy costs and your overall energy foot print.

With a recent Halogen Ban introduced by the European Union LEDs are quickly replacing traditional lighting. Not only do LEDs have a longer lifespan than halogen or CFL bulbs, but they are increasingly more cost effective and perform significantly better. We produced a lighting guide to help break down the jargon of lighting and make sure you are buying the best lighting at an affordable price. Below are some key facts about LED lighting to help you make the correct choice on your lighting and reduce your domestic energy bills…

Lighting amounts to 18% of an average annual energy bill

Depending on your current lighting, a single LED lamp could save you

as much as £250 over its life time

LED lamps use as much as 90% less energy than traditional incandescents

and 75% less than Halogen lamps

LEDs can last more than 25x longer than traditional lamps

LEDs contain no mercury and 95% of their parts are recyclable

LED lighting can be easily used with home automation technology to further save on energy costs

By 2020 LEDs are expected to account for 69% of global lighting sales, potentially cutting global emissions by 5%
