Reducing the amount of energy you use to light your home is not just good for the environment, but can be great for your checkbook as well. Switching from
incandescent and CFL light bulbs to LED light bulbs can reduce your energy consumption drastically. Not only will switching to LED lighting help the energy
costs of your household, but you may also save money on light bulbs in the long run. LED light bulbs can have a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours.
When you are shopping for LED lighting, you will have to change your perception about how bright a particular wattage is. After all, LED bulbs use less
light than a traditional bulb, and therefore the wattage of your previous bulb no longer applies. Instead look at the lumens, which measures the
incandescence of lighting, to determine how bright of a bulb you need. Temperature of the lighting is another thing to consider. LED lighting can come in a
variety of colors. However, soft white and bright white seem to be among the most common LED lighting temperatures.
Back when LED bulbs first arrived on the market, the bulbs were more expensive than most expected. However, with the popularity of this lighting type, LED
light bulbs are becoming a cheap and affordable option for homeowners. While you still might see some LED prices higher than incandescent bulbs, LED lighting is now relatively affordable, and will help your household save money over time.
