One of the many reasons why LED lights are becoming more and more popular throughout Australia is their long lifespan. Many LED lights are quoted at having 50,000 hours of efficient, quality light. Keep in mind that 50,000 hours is approximately 50 times longer than other types of incandescent bulbs and is 25 times longer than most halogen lights.


Understanding The Expected Lifespan Of LED Lights

So what does 50,000 hours look like? Because different lights in our homes are used for a variety of purposes and do not always get the same amount of use, we will look at averages. For LED lights that are on for 12 hours a day, an LED bulb that is rated at a 50,000-hour lifespan will last for more than 11 years. For lights in your home that aren’t on for 12 hours a day, let’s say they’re on for about 8 hours a day, the LED lights would last for 17 years.

The cost of LED lights is also decreased here. Even though the initial cost of the light may be more money than other non-LED lights, over the course of a decade, you will not be purchasing additional bulbs. The hassle of changing unreachable lights is also removed from this equation. Because the LED lights will last for more than a decade, the need to purchase new replacement lights and to change out the lights themselves adds to the cost effectiveness and convenience.

Calculating Your Overall Savings When Using LED Lights

At LEDified, a savings calculator is offered to help you determine how the LED lights in your home, and their long lifespan, will help you minimise your energy bill (while helping out the environment). You are able to look up your current lights and the number of light bulbs in your home that are used by your family. In this energy savings calculator, you will also choose your daily usage (in hours). The difference in energy costs and the money you will save because of the lifespan of LED lights, along with their reduced energy usage, is clearly shown to you in this calculator page.

LEDified has completed stress tests on their LED lights and confirms that most products will last for 50,000 hours. If you have any questions about the lifespan of certain LED lights or are still unsure about how to calculate your potential savings, be sure to enquire with LEDified!
