Philips LED bulb
■ While we’re on nasty jobs, cleaning ovens. ■ Waiting for your car to heat up in the mornings. ■ When you forget your phone. ■ Dirty dishes around the office. Clean up, people. It’s winter and we have a light bulb moment to share. Philips’ newly launched 4th generation LED bulbs are now brighter and cheaper. And they have impressive staying power – they last up to 15 years and have 80 per cent energy savings. Their higher upfront cost (they range from $9.95 to $19.95) is also paid back within just one year. According to EECA, switching just one 60W incandescent bulb to an LED bulb with the same light output could save you at least $142 on your power bill over the LED bulb’s expected lifetime of 10 years. So, do the math – imagine if it was all of your home’s bulbs. Your Weekend and Philips have five prize packs each containing five LED bulbs.
