When we talk about energy efficient light bulbs, light emitting diode bulbs are the only ones that come into our minds. The LED bulbs have largely replaced the incandescent tube lights and CFL bulbs in the present era. People now prefer using the LED bulbs in their living rooms and other essential places.

Even the kitchen under cabinet lighting, furniture lighting, Christmas tree décor, and the industrial and commercial lighting is done using these cost-effective, energy efficient and long lasting bulbs.

The light-emitting diode bulbs are known for their mind-blowing features. The main feature of these bulbs is the way they save so much energy and help in reducing the amount of monthly bill payment.

They produce light by the current formed by the combination of positive and the negative charges. Usually, the white colored light producing LED bulbs are used for common lighting purposes but they are available in other colors as well for a variety of use.

Energy saving bulbs are the popular people’s choice!

Earning money requires hard work and when it is spent paying the high electricity bills, it feels like the money is going down the drain. Replacing the tube light or the traditional bulbs in your house with the LED bulbs helps in reducing the overall utility bill cost and helps in saving money.

The price range of the bulbs:

Energy efficient led light bulbs in Pakistan range from Rs. 150 ($ 1.5) to as high as Rs. 3000 ($ 300) and so on. With the increases in the price of the bulb, the life and light quality of the bulb also increases. From cool daylight to warm light, white and soft white light; you can enjoy any color you want at an economical price.

The amount of energy saved:

The energy used is measured by the unit Watt. If we look at the energy usage of the traditional bulbs, it turns out that they use around 15 or more watts to produce the same amount of energy which a LED bulb can produce in 2.5 watts. This means that they save around 90% energy if compared to the other regularly used bulbs. Amazing isn’t it? Then why spend some extra rupees on the traditional or CFL bulbs.

As the energy used, the price of the utility bills and the bulb itself, and the no. of hours it can run for is interlinked; let’s have a view of the life of these bulbs too.

Life of an energy saving Light-emitting diode bulb:

Another benefit of these bulbs is that they last for a longer time. This means that even if you have to spend some extra rupees on these bulbs, in the long run, it would turn out to be in your favor. The LED bulbs last for 20,000 to 50,000 hours. This means that they live up to a lifespan of 18 to 23 years if used for 3 to 8 hours per day. Quite enough, don’t you think?

Thus, using an energy efficient bulb is worth the shot! It not only saves energy but also lights up immediately without using a lot of heat energy.
