When you go shopping, does it seem like it is always time to buy light bulbs? Standard bulbs sometimes burn out quickly but what can you do about it? There is a better solution for your home lighting needs and it comes in the form of LED light bulbs for your Victoria BC home. Here are some good reasons to make the switch soon.
Some standard bulbs claim to last for one thousand hours. Yet, they may not always last as long as they claim. Some LED light bulbs for your Victoria BC home can last ten thousand hours and some last for fifty thousand hours or longer. When you get longer life from your bulbs you need to change them less often. Even though an LED bulb may cost more, when you figure out the total costs, they are a bargain.
A simple light bulb may not seem like it uses much power. However, when you have several lights burning in your home, the energy costs can add up. For instance, suppose you have 7 60-watt bulbs burning at a given time. This is 420 watts of continuous power. LED light bulbs for your Victoria BC home use much less energy. A 60-watt equivalent bulb uses about 8 watts. Instead of 420 watts you use only 56 watts for the same amount to light.
LED does not contain mercury like CFL (compact fluorescent light bulbs). Since they last much longer than standard bulbs, you place fewer things in the trash which end up in landfills.
Do you have pets of children in the home? LED is cool to the touch. You do not have to worry about light bulbs burns. Talk to your lighting professionals at your lighting showroom today. They are there to help you make the right choices for your home.
