If you are noticing that your bills are expensive and you are hardly ever home, you may want to check what lightbulbs you have throughout your home.
Many people don’t realise that they have halogen lighting throughout their homes; and as you will notice they are much cheaper to purchase. However, they cost much more to run. So your bills can end up being more than needed. See the information below to compare Halogen and LED Bulbs.
|Cost||£1.90 avg||£4.28 avg|
|Power||50 watt||5 watt|
|Lifetime (hours)||1,500||5 watt|
|KWh over 25,000 hours||1,250||125|
|Cost @ £0.15/kWh||£187.50||£18.75|
|Bulbs needed for 25,000 hours||17||1|
|Total Bulb Expense||£32.80||£4.28|
|Total running cost||£220.30||£23.03|
So, even though it seems like it is more expensive to purchase an LED light bulb short-term, it is much cheaper long-term if you look at LED in comparison to halogen.
This is just one of the ways you can reduce your energy bills.
