Lower Your Electric Bill

LED 200.jpgYou Can See the Savings!

If you’ve considered changing your light bulbs to energy-saving LED bulbs, you’ll be glad to know that prices have come down considerably.

An initial investment now will generate immediate returns through energy costs and, because they last longer, you won’t need to replace them for years.

The life of LED bulbs is projected to be from 35,000 to 50,000 hours, compared to an incandescent bulb at 750 to 2,000 hours.  For normal home use, a LED bulb could last more than 20 years.

80-90% of the energy used by fluorescent and incandescent bulbs is wasted by the heat generated.  In contrast, cool LED bulbs converts 80% of the electrical energy to light energy.

Shop around to find the best price on LEDs.

If the LED only lasted 20,000 hours, you might have to purchase 20 incandescent bulbs during that same period of time.  Using the chart below, you can see that the LED uses about 10% of the wattage without compromising on the brightness.

I purchased new light bulbs at Home Depot last week for a new listing, and a four-pack of  9-watt bulbs was only $2.98. In fact, I went back for a supply of extras for future listings.

Give LED light bulbs a try.  ‘Guarantee you’ll like the savings on your electric bills and the replacement cost of your light bulbs.
