Ways to Save: LED Lightbulbs
The light-emitting diode, or LED, bulb is a rapidly-developing lighting technology—and today’s most energy efficient bulb. These brilliant innovations emit less heat and use less electricity than both their incandescent and CFL counterparts.
In fact, residential LEDs use up to 75 percent less energy and can last 25 times longer than traditional lightbulbs. That means if you twist in a new LED bulb today, considering the average use of a lightbulb, you won’t have to change it for another 10 years. A decade! Imagine that.
Not only do today’s LED lightbulbs last longer, they are more durable and offer comparable and sometimes even better light quality than other lighting methods.
Of course, the price to purchase these fine-tuned works of wonder is more than what you’d pay for incandescent bulbs. But the LEDs cost less to operate and will last years longer, saving you money in the long run, on both your power bill and bulb purchases.
