Geelong LED Lighting Specialists and Solar Power Company Reveal Top 3 Benefits of the Energy-Saving Light Form
GEELONG, Australia February 2014 – “For many, many years we filled our homes and offices with traditional incandescent lighting, ranging in wattage from 25Watt up to 100Watt,” says Christian Pritchett, director and owner of Geelong solar power company City to Surf Solar+. “Then came the fluorescent tube and compact fluorescent bulb, which were considerably more energy efficient than their incandescent equivalent, but they contain hazardous mercury and some research also shows that they can cause eye damage. Somewhere in the middle there, we also went backwards in terms of energy efficiency when we became fascinated by power-hungry halogen lights. Now, we welcome the Light Emitting Diode (LED), a highly efficient, non-toxic lamp that is far superior to any other globe.” www.citytosurfsolar.com.au
Christian says, “LED lighting in Geelong has increasingly become the norm when it comes to the provision of artificial lighting in homes and businesses in the area. We see it more and more all the time at our Geelong solar power company, home owners and tenants are becoming aware that LED lighting is good for the environment and great for their electricity bills.”
The top 3 benefits of LED lighting are:
- LED lighting is highly efficient.
By making the shift from power hungry halogen down lights and incandescent globes to LED lamps, homeowners and tenants alike, can reduce their lighting energy usage by up to 80%, which will significantly reduce their electricity bills.
- LED lighting has a long life span.
LED lamps can last up to 50,000 hours. Not only does this save money in the long run, it is also great for the environment as this reduces waste (and saves the hassle of pesky blown lights).
- LED lighting is environmentally friendly.
LED lamps’ high efficiency means lower carbon emissions. They can also reduce carbon emissions by reducing air-conditioning usage, as LED lamps do not have to produce heat first to produce light, unlike other light forms. LED lighting is mercury-free, unlike fluorescent globes, and is therefore safer for the environment during disposal and safer for people too. www.citytosurfsolar.com.au
Christian says, “It’s more affordable than you might think – we can do the calculations for you so you can see the savings for yourself. Often the payback period is under two years.” www.citytosurfsolar.com.au
Geelong LED lighting specialists City to Surf Solar+ have installed six different LED down lights as well as a range of oyster lights and flush fittings in their Grovedale showroom to display various lights and provide expert advice to help their customers make decisions about the best colour, spread, and light output for their home. www.citytosurfsolar.com.au
