SHANGHAI, July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — There are more LED lighting options today than ever before. If you are looking for an improved lighting source for your home or business, LED is the way to go. There are so many different types of LED lights today that you are sure to find the right options to meet your needs. The more you learn about the LED lighting options today, the better it will help you to get the right lights for you.
Today let us introduce to you the technology leader of high performance LED lights – Jiangsu Sino Opto Co., Ltd. (www.sino-opto.com) and learn the story behind its high performance products.
How Much Energy Do LED Lights Save?
Well, the answer to that question really depends on how dedicated a person is. In other words, if an entire house is lit with nothing but LED lights, the savings will be much more significant than if only one or two light bulbs are replaced in the home. The following statistics may provide the best answers to the question of how much energy do LED lights save.
The average household spends 35 percent to 40 percent of its total energy costs on lighting alone. If a home is lit exclusively by incandescent bulbs, that amounts to quite a sizable amount of money to power those lights! Consider an electric bill that is $200 per month in order to understand just how significant the savings would be by converting to LED lights. If 40 percent of that bill is electricity required for lights, the amount is $80. Since LED lights only utilize about 20 percent of the power that incandescent bulbs use, that’s $16 per month for LED lights. Add that to the $120 for other electricity needs and the bill is now only approximately $136. A savings of $64 is nothing to laugh at! How much energy do LED lights save in the average household? Roughly a third of the electric bill!
Those tubular lights that are often seen in office buildings, schools, government buildings and even medical centers are normally fluorescent tubular lights. While these lights will save a bit of money in comparison to incandescent lights, the risks involved with them do not make them a safe alternative to incandescent bulbs. In fact, they are worse for the environment than extra energy expenditure because of the toxic metals and gasses they contain. So, even though they use less energy than incandescent bulbs, they are still not a good alternative because they are not as energy efficient as LED lights. How much energy do LED lights save in comparison to fluorescent lamps? The ratio here is about 3:1.
