Replace Halogen dimming with LED Dimmers

The argument for changing the dimmers is that it will pay for itself in savings on the electricity bill.

As an example, generally speaking, an electrical circuit has 10 lights and the cost of new LED dimmer is €220 ex VAT.

But consider this:

Ten halogen lights use 50w of electricity per hour for 6 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year

 

cents

VAT @13.5%

 

Cost of a unit of electricity:

€0.18

€0.02

€0.20

 

Watts:

At 20c per kilowatt

So the cost for a year is:

Ten halogen lights use 10x 50w of electricity per hour for 6 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year:

1,092,000

€0.20

€218.40

An LED lamp uses 3w per hour!

65,520

€0.20

€13.10

saving:

 

 

€205.30


Just showing that LED is better for the planet!
