In addition a 4W LED Candle will last over 13 years if you are running them 10 hours a day so if we calculate the costs over a 13 year time frame a 13W CFL will cost you R934.44 per bulb in electricity and maintenance costs whereas a 4W LED Candle will only cost you R327.86. These figures exclude inflation and electricity costs so the actual savings are a lot greater.

So while the LED bulb does cost more to buy initially the savings more than make up for it and you will start seeing a return on your investment in under 8 months i.e. your LED bulb will pay for itself though energy savings.
