While the purchase price for LEDs is high, the savings in terms of energy efficiency and lifetime warranty make them an easy first choice in any energy upgrade.
Improving the energy efficiency of light bulbs and how they are used can be the simplest way of making significant electricity cost savings. Lighting currently accounts for 17% of the domestic spend on household appliances and upward of 10% of our energy spend. The cost of lighting energy is second only to heating and cooling energy costs in most homes. Interestingly, the cost of electric lighting rose considerably over the past 40 years but reached a peak in the late 1990s and has steadily dropped since. The introduction of energy-saving bulbs and government bans on certain incandescent high-energy bulbs (old-style bulbs) can account for the savings, but there are many more savings to be made.
