Switching to LED Lighting has never been easier; learn more about BC Hydro's energy efficiency programs and incentives.
While there are many benefits, these are our top four:
Compared to traditional lighting, the lifespan of LED's is far superior and can last on average 50,000+ hours, or anywhere from 6 - 12 years before you need to replace them. (which is approx. 40 times longer than Incandescent bulbs!)
LED light bulbs use around 75-85% less electricity than incandescent bulbs, and approx. 50% less than fluorescent tubes.
LED's provide higher lumens per watt and produce more light at lower wattage levels, making them much more efficient and power-wise than filament light.
Approximately 80-90% of the total energy used to power traditional bulbs (like incandescent) is converted directly into heat.
LEDs emit almost no forward heat and don't produce any UV rays, and because they consume less power, they can operate effectively on low voltage systems which are generally much safer.
By switching to energy-efficient lighting, you will more than likely qualify for rebates and incentives to help you save on your initial investment. These programs are constantly changing & vary by province, but our team can help you easily navigate them & assist with applications!
LED Lighting is quickly becoming the preferred lighting solution for both homes and businesses as more people look to replace their traditional incandescent lighting.
