Energy Saving Using LED Lighting

by Editor on October 2, 2013

This guest post by Meteor Electrical gives some info about lamps and energy saving LED lighting.


As the winter approaches electricity bills are beginning to soar with the creeping in cold weather. The drop in temperature means more homes are keeping their heating on for longer periods and as a result people will be dreading to read their electric bills. The big question is- Are there other ways to save electricity? Well one answer is to use energy saving LED lighting.  

LEDs have been around for many years and are best known for lighting things such as Christmas lights, traffic signals and power on signal on devices such as our TVs and laptops. However LED lighting in our household has become more popular and is rapidly replacing standard incandescent light bulbs. The most popular LED lighting that can be seen in homes today are LED spotlights and LED floodlights.

LED lights have a small chip and when voltage reaches this chip the current creates the light. The advantage of this is that the LED bulb lasts longer meaning less cost in the home as the bulbs wouldn’t have to be replaced as often making them earth friendly too! LED lighting requires less electricity than a standard light bulb making them more efficient and will reduce energy bills.

LED lighting can use up to 80% less energy than the standard house bulb meaning a huge cut in costs and they are known in some cases to last up to 100,000 hours.  However, they do carry a disadvantage, a higher initial purchase cost, which is why at Meteor Electrical we are aiming to keep them affordable for you!
