On average LEDs use 90% less power compared to incandescent bulbs. The reason for this is that LEDs are more efficient in converting energy into light.
LEDs offer longer lifetimes and less maintenance is needed, this is because it is a type of solid-state lighting. It is less likely to fail completely, a well-built LED bayonet bulb can last up to 25,000 hours.
It is thought that around 20% of a household's energy consumption comes from lighting, within commercial premises, this could be even more. The cost of switching to LED is soon outweighed with the savings made to a light source that uses a fraction of the energy.
