But what if you could cut down your lighting energy consumption by 80%, save a great deal of money on your energy bill every month and not have to think about changing a light bulb in your home for several years? That was certainly worth 60 seconds of my mindshare!
Well here are some quick facts and snippets of information to help you learn more about the latest generation of LED light bulbs .
LED bulbs can be used in many common fixtures in your home, including accent lighting, track lighting, room lighting and outdoor spotlights. They offer many unique money and energy-saving benefits over traditional bulbs.
- LED bulbs have an exceptionally long lifespan. They can last up to 5 times longer than compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs and much longer than traditional incandescent bulbs. A typical LED light that burns 8 hours a day can last about 17 years before it needs changing, making LED bulbs an ideal choice for hard-to-reach lights.
- LED bulbs have no filament or moving parts, making them extremely durable and low maintenance.
- LED bulbs generate almost no heat or UV rays, which can help reduce air conditioning costs in your home and help keep fabrics and furnishings from fading.
- LED bulbs provide greater energy savings by using up to 80% less energy to produce the same amount of brightness as that of CFLs and incandescent bulbs.
