Energy Efficient Lighting OptionsChoosing The Best Bulbs For Your Buck

All of us have known the frustration that comes with an incandescent bulb burning out at exactly the wrong time—in the middle of a chapter, halfway through a shower, or midway through a meal. However, as your bulbs burn out, you have the opportunity to replace them with alternative, more energy-efficient options. Consider swapping out your incandescent bulbs for Light Emitting Diode (LED) or Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulbs to save energy, money, and lessen your bulb burnout.

  • LED Bulbs: Originally designed as a small, single bulb for use in pen lights, instrument panels, and small electronics, technology has allowed for implementation of clusters of LED bulbs for increased brightness and, consequently, increased application. The benefits of LED bulbs are numerous: they last ten times longer than any other kind of bulbs, skip the fragile filament that makes incandescent bulbs so difficult to handle, run cool to the touch, and use at least 30 percent less energy than any other bulb. LED bulbs are more expensive in the store, but will save you money in the long run by burning brighter, for longer.
  • CFL Bulbs: If you are looking to spend a little less on your lighting but still move in an increasingly energy-efficient direction, consider purchasing CFL bulbs. Although they do not last as long as LED bulbs, they are more affordable and fit into almost all sockets. With new technology, CFLs spread a much warmer light than the sterile white light often associated with fluorescent bulbs.
