“Saving money on annual electricity bills at a time when we really need the extra money, and reducing annual carbon dioxide emissions by around 5kg per bulb.
“To put this into context, the average home could see a 63kg annual reduction in carbon emissions simply by switching to LED lights.”
The latest lightbulb energy cost analysis by 4lite technicians also showed that, from October, a single LED lightbulb will cost less than 4p a day to run – based on six hours of usage – equating to just over £13 a year.
For 10 bulbs within the home, this would cost £134 in energy. In comparison, an incandescent bulb would cost 20p a day, or £74 a year per bulb and amount to an eye-watering £745 for 10 bulbs.
