LED light bulbs are the most energy efficient light bulbs on the market today. On average a 10 watt LED light bulb gives off the same amount of light as the going obsolete 60 watt incandescent light bulb we have been using for so long as well as a 13 watt CFL bulb or spirals as many people call them. There are many avantages to LED bulbs over the other 2.
Cost of power consumed based on 10c per kilowatt hour
Added cost for every 1c increase in cost of kilowatt hr. over the 10c used above
Total cost to operate
Effect of on/off switching
Contains any hazardous materials?
Instant on light?
Lumens per bulb
(amount of light created)
temperature and humidity effect
bulbs fit into conventional light fixtures
Numbers below based on average useage of a bulb for 3 hours a day based on 30,000 hours or 27.3 years.
@ $3.95 = $11.85
shortens bulb lifespan
contains mercury .5 to 3.5 mg per bulb
@ $1.65 = $41.25
Naturally being more efficient also makes LED light bulbs more environment friendly. They consume less power so less power needs to be generated. Without the use of mercury that the CFL (spiral) bulbs contain there is no concern for mercury contamination from broken bulbs in our homes or landfills. LED light bulbs do not give off any ultraviolet or infrared radiation. Outlasting other light bulbs means less resources needed for the same task. And they just plain save you money!!
The above price savings may not seem like much to some but you need to factor in that is only for 1 equivalent 60 watt light bulb. How many bulbs are on at any one time in your home? What about any 100 watt bulbs you have working? We recommend replacing them with either a 12 or 15 watt LED light bulb.
LED is short for 'light emitting diodes'
Recommended replacement size LED light bulbs for existing incandescent light bulbs we have been using.
7 watt LED - 450 lumens to replace 40 watt incandescent light bulbs.
10 watt LED - 810 lumens to replace 60 watt incandescent light bulbs.
12 watt LED - 950 lumens to replace 75 to 100 watt incandescent light bulbs.
15 watt LED - 1250 lumens to replace 85 to 100 watt incandescent light bulbs.

On average LED lighting uses 1/6 th the electricity of conventional incandescent light bulbs while supplying the same amount of light, known as lumens!
* The 7 and 10 watt LED light bulbs are the exact same size as the standard incandescent bulbs. The 12 watt LED is the same width but approximately 3/8" ( 1 cm.) longer. The 15 watt LED light bulb is approximately 1 3/8" (3 1/2 cm.) longer and 1/2" (1.3 cm.) wider.
