LED-BulbsWith the legislated end for the incandescent bulb in sight, some consumers have taken to hoarding bulbs as a strategy for dealing with their eventual disappearance from store shelves.

Led Bright’s advice is that stocking up on old incandescent bulbs and using them will actually cost you a lot more money by the time you’ve exhausted your supply. Buying and installing just one Led Bright LED bulb which can last 25,000 hours or more, is the equivalent of 25 incandescent bulbs which fail after about 1,000 hours. And just one incandescent will use more energy than nine LED bulbs combined.

There are several displays at the new Led Bright pop-up store and warehouse in Vancouver, which illustrate this point graphically. The relatively cheap up-front costs for the old incandescent is misleading when weighed against the costs of actually turning them and paying for the energy to keep them on.

The 60 and 100 watt incandescent bulbs will be phased out on January 1, 2014, with the remainder of the 25 watt to 50 watt bulbs being pulled from the manufacturing process by the end of the year.  Of course that doesn’t mean that the incandescent will disappear entirely. Any bulbs manufactured before the end of 2013 will continue to be sold until supplies are gone.

It’s therefore more important than ever to be a wise consumer. For more information visit our store at 2141 Burrard Street or visit us on line at www.highnetenergy.com. Save your hard earned money by investing in LEDs’ and help save the planet by reducing the demand for energy.
