LED lights – why make the change? Shining a light on the benefits of LED lighting
There are many good reasons to swap to LED lighting but if you need some more convincing here are the top facts:
LED lights last longer
LED lights are more reliable and less breakable than other bulbs meaning they can last for a very long time. For example, the EcoLED GU10 bulb has a design life of an enormous 40,000 hours! Also all our EcoLED products come with a 5-year warranty so you can rest assured that you won’t have to buy a replacement bulb for at least 5 years. Similarly all the LG Electronics bulbs are guaranteed for 3 years. This is all in addition to Eco Power Shop’s “no quibbles” returns policy.
Low energy use
LEDs are the most energy efficient lights available. For example, the LG LED E27 light bulb has a power consumption of 9.5W but has a brightness equivalent to a 60W incandescent bulb. This LED bulb therefore uses around 85% less electricity than its old-fashioned equivalent.
The combination of both energy savings and maintenance savings means that you will soon recoup the initial costs when you switch to LED lights.
Thankfully, gone are the days of harsh, cold LED lighting. LED bulbs and lights are now available in a variety of colours and colour temperatures, with warm white (3000K) continuing to prove very popular amongst our customers.
Variety of fixtures and fittings
There is now a huge choice of LED products available meaning you can find the right LED lights for you.
LED bulbs are available for all the regular light fittings (for example, BC22 and GU10) meaning that it’s super easy to make the switch to LED bulbs using your existing light fittings.
If you are redecorating or renovating your house, there are also many stylish LED-specific fittings you can choose from. For example, the EcoLED ZEP1 is a sophisticated downlight, which looks great in all rooms. Also LED flexi strip is available in many different colours to help you create a variety of stunning and distinguished lighting effects.
