Offering a highly efficient, long-lasting alternative to conventional incandescent lighting, Sunbeam's high-performance Enviro-Bulb LED bulbs last 25 times longer than the regular incandescent bulb. They can also save as much as 80 percent on your energy costs and are maintenance free. This 11-watt Enviro-Bulb PAR30 medium base flood light provides an equivalent incandescent brightness of 50 watts and it's rated for a lifespan of 40,000 hours.
Sunbeam's Enviro-Bulb LED bulbs are free of harmful UV and IR emissions, do not contain any lead or mercury, are always cool to the touch, and save energy by reducing the amount of electricity used. Resistant to shock and vibration, the Enviro-Bulb LED bulb produces superior lighting quality, turns on and off instantly, and is dimmable.
There are two costs associated with any light bulb: the cost of buying and the cost of operating (electricity). The cost of operating of an incandescent bulb is much higher than the cost of buying. The operating cost is based on the kilowatt per hour (kWh) rate you pay in your area for electricity. The US average is 11¢/kWh (Energy Star).
For example, a standard 50W PAR30 bulb uses 50 watts of energy to emit 500 lumens of light. It converts only a small amount of energy into light (emitting excess energy as heat, as you've discovered if you've ever touched an incandescent bulb when it's on). Based on a daily usage of 3 hours per day and the US average of energy cost of 11¢/kWh, a 50W incandescent bulb costs $4.25 per year to operate. Of course, if you use your bulb for more than 3 hours per day your operating cost will be higher.
An LED (Light-Emitting Diode) bulb is much more efficient in converting energy into light and is always cool to the touch. The Sunbeam Enviro-Bulb PAR30 Flood LED 11W bulb uses only 11 watts of energy to emit 500 lumens of light. It costs $1.32 to operate each year--a savings of $2.93 per year (and a total of $107 over its lifespan). With savings like this, these bulbs pay for themselves.
There are other costs associated to the light bulb that are often not considered, such as the cost to buy replacement bulbs plus the time and effort required to physically replace the bulbs.
The Sunbeam Enviro-Bulb PAR30 LED bulb, on the other hand, is truly a maintenance-free light bulb. With an expected lifespan of 40,000 hours, it will only need to be replaced approximately every 36.5 years.

What can I say, it's an LED flood light with the same number of lumens as a sixty watt bulb. That said it's good for those places that you don't want to go very often like in my... Read morePublished on September 3, 2012 by Grey Wolffe
