Today, we’re diving into a common question: Can switching to LED lights really lower your electricity bill?
Let’s shed some light on this!
What are LED Lights? LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. These lights are known for their energy efficiency and long lifespan. Unlike traditional incandescent bulbs, LEDs use a semiconductor to convert electricity into light, resulting in less energy waste.
LED lights use up to 75% less energy compared to traditional incandescent bulbs. This significant reduction in energy consumption directly impacts your electricity bill.
While LED lights may have a higher upfront cost which has come down dramatically of the last few years, they last much longer. An average LED bulb can last up to 25,000 hours compared to 1,000 hours for an incandescent bulb. This means fewer replacements and more savings in the long run.
By consuming less power for the same amount of light, LED lights can significantly reduce your electricity bills. For instance, if you replace ten 60-watt incandescent bulbs with 10-watt LEDs, you’re reducing your energy consumption by 83%. Over time, this reduction adds up, leading to noticeable savings. Switching to LED is not just good for your wallet, but it’s also a step towards a greener lifestyle.
LEDs reduce greenhouse gas emissions by using less energy and minimize waste due to their longer lifespan.

Example of saving and energy consumption in closing, let’s say an average home light has two 60-watt bulbs in it the math works out to 120 watts divided by 120 volts equals 1 amp, conversely if the same light has two LED A19 bulbs in it the math would be 18 watts divided by 120 volts that would equal .15 of an amp that is a reduction of 85% of energy. And that is just for one light! Image if you did your whole home?
