Invented in 1960s but still quite new for mass consumers, LED lamps are rapidly gaining popularity. They are usually praised for energy efficiency, light quality and long life-span. But a lot of people still prefer the alternatives because of LED bulbs' high price. Let us dispell all the doubts and show you how to minimize your electricity expenses up to 10 times.
First of all, let’s time travel back to 60s, when LEDs were just invented. Single diode costed about 200$. But the virtues of LEDs were so attractive that scientists decided to do their best to bring it to the households. As the technology was becoming more advanced and cheaper, the energy price was increasing. Meanwhile, the ecological issue became more significant.
When other attempts to combine rationality and eco-friendliness, such as compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), failed, LEDs were finally introduced. Although they still overcome incandescent bulbs in price, LEDs serve for at least 40 times longer and consume about ten times less electricity. Being made of time-proof materials some light bulbs, like Jooby Décor, can serve up to 23 years without any defects.
So, by making some simple calculations you’ll see that buying a LED lamp once in 20 years is much profitable than buying an incandescent bulb every 2-3 months.
