Making the switch to LED light bulbs offers significant energy savings over incandescent, halogen and compact fluorescent alternatives. On average, LED’s consume 80% less energy when compared to incandescent light bulbs.
LED Light Facts:
Long Lasting – Can last up to 10 times longer than CFL bulbs and far longer than an incandescent bulb.
Durable – Without having a filament, LED’s suffer less damage to elements such as: bumping, shock, heat, and cold.
Cool – LEDs produce 3.4 btus/hour in comparison with 85 for incandescent bulbs.
Mercury Free – No mercury is used to manufacture LED bulbs.
Efficient – LEDs use only 2-17 watts of electricity which is 1/3 to 1/30 of incandescent or CFL.
Cost-Effective – LEDs cost more up front, but you save money over time with fewer replacements and lower energy bills.
