The incandescent light bulb has been around for over a century and revolutionised our lives and the way we live! But now we believe that a SERIOUS contender to the 100W Incandescent bulb has arrived – Our New 10W LED Bulb with Samsung LED Chip.
The LED Bulb, contains no mercury so is safe, uses only 10 watts of power and will last well over 40,000 hours. LED bulbs have had major issues in the past but the technology has come a long way in 12 months.
We hope to put away all the concerns with this posting comparing the 10W LED Bulb to the 100W Incandescent.
10W LED Bulb vs 100W Incandescent Bulb
10W LED Bulb
|Wattage||100 Watts||10 Watts|
|Lifespan||1,000 Hours||50,000 Hours|
|Electricity Cost per Unit||R1.25||R1.25|
|Daily Operating Hours||10 Hours||10 Hours|
|Daily Watts Used||1000 Watts||100 Watts|
|Daily Running Costs||R1.25||R0.12|
|Monthly Running Costs (Daily x 30)||R37.50||R3.60|
|Yearly Running Costs (Monthly x 12)||R450.00||R43.20|
|Yearly Replacement Costs (Lifespan / Running Hours)||R36.50||R13.14|
This calculation shows that it costs R486.50 to run and maintain a 100W Incandescent compared to a 10W LED Bulb which will cost you R56.34
In addition a 10W LED Bulb will last over 13 years if you are running them 10 hours a day so if we calculate the costs over a 13 year time frame a 13W CFL will cost you R6324.50 per bulb in electricity and maintenance costs whereas a 10W LED Bulb will only cost you R732.42. These figures exclude inflation and electricity costs so the actual savings are a lot greater.
So while the LED bulb does cost more to buy initially the savings more than make up for it and you will start seeing a return on your investment in under 8 months i.e. your LED bulb will pay for itself though energy savings.
With electricity costs soaring now is the time to make the change to LED Lighting, it costs too much not too!
