LED stands for light-emitting diode, and LED bulbs differ from traditional incandescent bulbs in the way they produce the light. LEDs produce light through the use of semi-conductors and are some of the most efficient bulbs on the market producing around 90% less energy than incandescent bulbs.
Why should I buy LED light bulbs?
LEDs can save you up to 90% on your electricity bills if replacing standard incandescent lighting.
LEDs omit light more quickly at start-up.
LEDs lighting require no maintenance, depending on the devices chosen.
LEDs lighting can be controlled by Smart Technology.
Many LEDs have a rated life of up to 50,000 hours. This is approximately 50 times longer than a typical incandescent, 20-25 times longer than a typical halogen, and 8-10 times longer than a typical CFL. Used 12 hours a day, a 50,000 bulb will last more than 11 years.
Enhanced Capital Allowance
First-year allowances for energy saving products
How to claim an ECA for listed energy saving products
The Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme provides a 100 per cent first-year allowance for investments in certain energy saving plant and machinery. It lets you write off - ie deduct - 100 per cent of the cost of qualifying plant and machinery against taxable profits in the year of purchase.
