When it comes to lighting your home what type of light bulbs do you use? While many people are still using incandescent or fluorescent bulbs, LED bulbs are on the rise, and for several reasons. While the government has made a push for consumers to use LED lights because they consume less energy, they also have many benefits for home and business owners. Here are two ways you’ll see savings when you make the switch.
Incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs use a lot more energy to light your home than LED bulbs do. An LED bulb can create the same amount of light as a 60-watt incandescent bulb for less than 10 watts of energy. That’s a huge difference. If you make the switch now, you’ll see a significant decrease in energy costs in the following months.
