Shining Light on LEDs: Energy Savings

Posted by kbanks & filed under LEDs, Lighting, energy efficiency.

With the rapid advancement of lighting technology, LEDs are quickly surpassing the efficiency of more traditional lighting, including fluorescent and incandescent sources. Progress Lighting offers LEDs that meet strict requirements for maximum energy savings and superior performance.

The P2300 LED flush mount from Progress Lighting meets Energy Star standards, ensuring high quality performance, brightness and color consistency.

When you select a high-quality LED fixture, you can expect a significant ROI from an energy conservation standpoint. Here are some of the energy saving benefits of LEDs from Progress Lighting:

  • LED sources use at least 75% less energy than incandescent lighting, allowing homeowners to save on operating expenses.
  • LEDs last 35 to 50 times longer than incandescent sources and approximately 2 to 5 times longer than fluorescent lighting. This means less bulb maintenance.
  • LEDs do not produce heat like traditional sources, reducing cooling costs. Traditional incandescent bulbs waste 98% of the energy they consume on heat.
  • LEDs do not use power when they are turned off.

Although the upfront costs are more expensive, LEDs pay for themselves in an estimated three years timespan due to the significant energy savings. According to MSN Real Estate, LED lights, which are up to 90% more efficient than incandescents, can result in an annual lighting bill as low as $26.
