As an average Joe myself, I know that many of us our constantly worried about our utility bills. One of these being electricity, and with Incandescent lighting dying out people are faced with the choice of deciding between CFL(Compact Fluorescent Lamp) lighting or LED (Lamp Emitting Diodes) lighting. While CFL’s are a better choice than old-school Incandescent lighting I am going to give you several reasons why LED’s are a better choice for your home.
If you decide to apply LED lighting inside your home in as little as a month you will see a considerable amount of savings compared to the average CFL or Incandescent bulbs. And on top of that they have an average lifespan of 60,000 hours compared to the average Incandescent life of 15,000 and the 10,000 hour lifespan of CFL’s. They use around 82% less energy than Incandescent Bulbs compared to the 75% of CFL’s, and if this information is not enough to convince you why LED’s are superior for your home. Did you know that CFL’s contain mercury? And if not disposed of correctly can be hazardous to our environment.
To sum it up, when you look at the pros and cons of these three light sources LED Bulbs will always end up on the top of the totem pole. I suggest you do yourself a favor and make the change quick, if not for your environment but for the outrageous amount of savings that will stack up over time.
