New Ecopoint LED Bulb A Revolution For Energy Efficient Lighting
Ecopoint are pleased to announce the addition of a new lightbulb, the LEDisong, to their comprehensive range of top quality, environmentally friendly LED lighting solutions.
The LEDisong promises to revolutionise the energy efficient light bulb market. These bulbs are the first energy efficient light bulb that look and feel like a traditional light bulb, unlike the curly CFL bulbs which are awkward, ugly and slow to warm up. The LEDisong is brighter than the average energy efficient lightbulb, uses much less power, fits into any light fitting and turn on instantly.
Paul Wilton, Ecopoint’s founder and director, said: “We are incredibly thrilled to have added this product to our ecoLED range. It is truly a game changer in the sense that no changes need to be made to a light fitting, the bulb fits straight in. Then there is the fact that this bulb produces a much brighter light than other so called energy efficient curly bulbs, all while drawing less power. It doesn’t get much better!
The LEDisong bulb is available in four different bulbs: traditional, candle, R80 and R95. They save up to 95% energy, and like all Ecopoint products, they come with a five year warranty; other bulbs, including curly CFL bulbs and traditional bulbs, carry no warranty. To put their energy efficiency benefits into perspective, to run a 100W bulb for 12 months for 5.5 hrs/day @ $0.22c/kw it costs $44.00pa, while the cost of running a new LEDisong bulb in the same typical domestic setting is $2.86 pa. Like Ecopoint’s other LED lighting solutions, the LEDisong boasts an ultra long life: when used for 5.5 hours per day, the LEDisong bulb will last for 25 years.
This bulb is an exciting development as it has a wide use of applications. Domestic users in the residential market will be keen to get their hands on an energy efficient lightbulb that looks good and doesn’t require an electrician to install or change light fittings.
