Efficient Home Lighting

CFL Light bulbOver 22 years an incandescent light bulb will cost you $1,333 dollars on your electric bill, on average. During that same time period an LED (Light Emitting Diode) bulb will cost you just $42. Why do we reference such a seemingly random time frame? Assuming average light usage, an LED bulb will last around 22 years. So $42 plus the cost of the bulb is all you’ll spend to power one of the lights in your home for over two decades. The advantages of this are undeniable and beg the question, why don’t you switch out all your bulbs? Of course, the rhetorical answer is, you should!

Light Emitting Diode Bulbs (LEDs)

LEDs use at least 75% less energy than than traditional incandescent light bulbs and are rated to last at least 25,000 hours. LED energy savings and lifespan make them the obvious first choice for energy efficiency contractors. Although they are a bit more expensive than traditional bulbs, they are well worth the extra dollars due to their convenience and energy savings over time.

Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFLs)

Similar to LEDs, CFLs use roughly a quarter of the energy needed to power incandescent bulbs. Although they don’t last quite as long as LEDs, averaging 6,000 to 15,000 hours of life, they will only cost about $10 to operate over that time and are certainly still a viable replacement for incandescents.

While both bulbs are initially more expensive, they more than pay for themselves over their lifetime through energy savings and the savings and convenience associated with not needing to replace them for over a decade.
