LED – It Doesn’t Stand for Less Energy Demanded…But It Could

The light bulb game has gotten a little confusing in recent years. We all know the good old incandescent bulb (thank you, Mr. Edison). Then came the CFL or compact fluorescent light bulb. Today, we have the LED. You’ve heard that LED light bulbs save more energy, but the initial investment is much higher. So, are they worth buying? The team at Day & Night Heating & Cooling Company has broken down the benefits below. If you haven’t switched to LED bulbs in your home, here are four good reasons to make the switch today:

1. Energy Savings

How do these bulbs stack up when it comes to energy savings? Hands down, the LED bulbs win. LED light bulbs use up to 80% less energy than incandescent bulbs and about half as much energy as CFL bulbs. This is not only better for the environment, it can yield major savings when it comes to your electric bill.

2. LED Bulbs Have an Incredibly Long Lifespan

While the initial cost of an LED bulb is higher, their long lifespan makes up for it. LED bulbs have an average lifespan of 25,000 hours, compared to 8,000 hours for a CFL bulb or 1,200 hours for an incandescent bulb. Don’t forget the convenience of not having to change your bulbs every year or so!

3. LEDs Provide Softer, Warmer Lighting

Lighting can be harsh and hard on the eyes. LED lights are known for their softness, warmth, and versatility, compared to the harshness of incandescent and fluorescent bulbs. LED lights come in a wide variety of designs, styles, and colors, to complement any home decor style.

4. LED Light Bulbs Offer Safety

LED lights are safer for your family. They burn much cooler than other light bulbs, reducing your risk of a home fire.

As you can see, LED bulbs offer quite a few advantages over other types of light bulbs. We hope this post encourages you to replace all of the light bulbs in your home with LED lights. For more helpful money and energy saving tips, be sure to visit our blog often.
