It’s easier than ever to work out the savings when you switch to LED bulbs

BLT Direct, the online lighting experts, are urging consumers to switch to LEDs by adding a new feature onto their website. Customers can go to any energy-saving or LED lightbulb homepage and discover the incredible range of savings they can make by buying the bulb.

“We felt that consumers needed to see the actual money they’d be saving,” said Steve Ellwood, Managing Director of BLT Direct. “LEDs have become popular, but customers need to find the right one that suits their needs. Our Energy Savings Tool uses the average life of a bulb and the kWh rate to discover the amount of savings they could make.”

The feature is simple to use; just go to any individual LED or energy saving light bulb’s page and input the amount of bulbs you intend to use as well as your energy supplier’s kWh rate to find the money you could save against using a less energy-efficient bulb.

With some of the nation’s supermarkets pledging to replace all their light bulbs with LEDs by 2020, individual customers can also make big savings if they replace all their bulbs with LEDs. Not only is it better for the environment and the average wallet, the long life of the LED light bulbs will also reduce the time that customers will spend changing them.

Though LEDs were launched with limited colour temperatures when they first became commercially available in 2002, the technology has come on in leaps and bounds in the fifteen years since. Now, LEDs are no longer the new kid on the block, and look set to dominate the lighting market even further in the coming years.
