Lower your carbon footprint & power bill
Light your house and garden with Switch LEDs and lower your power consumption.
Save money, reduce your carbon footprint and benefit New Zealand.
Our 11W recessed downlight will give out the same light as a 50W halogen. That’s nearly 80% reduction in energy consumption. In a standard modern home with 30 halogen downlights, you could save up to $600 a year in energy costs alone. That doesn’t take into account the carbon dioxide you would otherwise emit by driving to the store for your replacement globes or the time to change the blown globes. Our unit will last at least 60,000hrs! Over that 60,000 hours, you could save up to $12,500 on replacement globes and energy costs.
LED fixtures also have an environmental advantage in that they contain no mercury, last longer and produce less waste, plus they are made from fully recyclable materials.
A single kilowatt-hour of electricity will generate 610grams of CO2 emissions. Assuming the average light bulb is on for 10 hours a day, a single 100W incandescent bulb will generate 222kg of CO2 every year. The 12W Switch Lighting LED equivalent will be responsible for only 26kg of CO2 over the same time span. A building’s carbon footprint from lighting can be reduced by nearly 90% by exchanging all incandescent bulbs for new LEDs.
CFL lighting, which is commonly used in our residential homes today, must be disposed of through an appropriate recycling centre. Fluorescent lamps contain mercury, a highly toxic waste, which, if disposed of irresponsibly, can pollute waterways and damage the environment.
By switching to LED luminaires you help protect the environment we live in.
