The Address-o-Lite is a asset to your home or business. Throughout the years it has helped emergency response teams find people in need faster, it has helped deter home invasion and the Address-o-Lite has always been at the forefront of helping reduce your homes energy usage. At first it was a move from incandescent bulbs to compact fluorescent bulbs, so instead of using a 60 watt bulb the Address-o-Lite was utilizing a more energy efficient 13 watt CFL. This was 4 times less energy consumption!
Address-o-Lite has always been at the fore front of energy efficiency and utilization of new technologies like the photo cell in every Address-o-Lite. We are continuing that tradition and have been supplying homes across America in the last year with an LED Address-o-Lite that only consumes 6 watts of energy! This is over 50% less energy consumption than the already staggering savings of a CFL.
LED Conversion Calculations
Taking the 2013 electric rates, the average retail price of electricity was $.10/kWh, we estimate the Address-o-Lite to operate on average 10 hours a day 7 days a week. Below are the operational cost comparisons between different types of bulbs.
Annual Cost to operate 60 Watt INC - $21.90
Annual Cost to operate 13 Watt CFL - $4.75
Annual Cost to operate 6 Watt LED - $2.19
LED Life Span
The cost to operate differential is staggering but where the real savings comes into play is the life span of our LED bulbs. Our bulbs have a lifespan of 30,000 hrs! If we do a similar comparison of life spans, you will see another staggering difference.
Incandescent bulb - 1200 hrs (3 bulb changes per year)
Compact Fluorescent - 8000 hrs (.45 bulb changes per year)
LED Bulb - 30,000 hrs (.12 bulb changes per year)
One LED bulb will last 8.21 years
By the calculations you can see that a 6 Watt LED bulb with a 30,000 hr lifespan can save you money, save energy and save on maintenance costs of replacing bulbs.
