Five reasons to make the switch to LED
1.Lower Electricity Bills – Switching a single 42-watt halogen light bulb to an energy efficient 9-watt LED will save about €7.00 per year. LEDs are often only slightly more expensive than their halogen counterpart, but can save you money in the long term.
2.They last longer – Halogen bulbs typically dim over time and fail after about two years. LEDS last up to ten times longer.
3. Reduce your carbon footprint – LEDS use approximately a fifth of the energy of halogen bulbs. The EU wide phase-out of halogen lightbulbs will prevent carbon emission’s equal to the total annual emissions of over half a million Irish households.
4.Easy installation – LED bulbs are available to replace all the standard bulbs, Newer LED bulbs are branded as “soft white or warm white” that emit the better light than their halogen equivalent.
5.They are better for the environment – Unlike CFLs, LEDs are mercury free which is better for the environment.
