The superior Life Cycle of LED bulbs

The superior Life Cycle of LED bulbs
October 26, 2017

Longevity is one of the Major advantages of LED bulbs, especially compared to the other types of bulbs available.

The average projected lifespan of an LED bulb is 50,000 hours! Compared with only 10,000 for Compact fluorescent lights (CFL’s) and a measly 1,200 for incandescent bulbs (source).

If you evaluate the cost of a given product not just regarding the products retail value and its initial installation costs, then few products are more evidently valuable than LED bulbs. Not only will you have to buy CFA lights roughly five times as frequently (or incandescent bulbs approximately forty-two times as often!!)

Selecting higher quality goods can sometimes save you significant costs over the long term, but most renovation projects or home applications can only be deemed valuable when evaluating the cost of replacing the items more regularly.

LEDs not only have to be replaced far less frequently but have the additional advantaged of increased efficiency, which should pay off concerning your electricity bill in less than one lifecycle. The electricity savings when considered for a whole house worth of lighting over their 50,000-hour lifecycle could be huge.

Whereas, Incandescent light bulbs waste around 80% of the electricity they use by producing redundant radiant heat. LED’s emit a comparatively minuscule amount of heat energy, and therefore 80-90% of all power used gets put directly towards their intended purpose, Lighting your home!

Therefore if you genuinely do evaluate the real cost of a product as it’s cost over the expected lifecycle, then you should expect LED’s costs to be negative. You should expect a monetary return on your investment!
