Save Hundreds on Your Power Bill with LED Lighting

You can save the planet, stop changing light bulbs and save lots of money with LED Lighting.

LED lights are super-efficient, up to 80% more efficient than traditional lighting such as fluorescent and incandescent lights. They only waste 5% of energy as heat so 95% of the energy in LEDs is converted into light. This is the opposite of fluorescent lights which convert 95% of energy to heat and only 5% into light!

This also makes fluorescent lights hot to touch which is not great for little fingers.
