If you are in the market for new lightbulbs for fixtures in your home, you may want to consider LED bulbs as a viable and cost-effective alternative. Consumers who are not looking for specialty lighting should consider LED because they use 75% less energy than incandescent light bulbs. For consumers concerned about the environment, that’s a big reason why they should switch all of the lightbulbs in their home.
Technically LEDs aren’t lightbulbs, but light-emitting diodes as the acronym implies. LEDs require much less energy to produce the same amount of light as regular incandescent lightbulbs. They also last much longer than regular lightbulbs so they also save money when it comes to supplies. The initial cost of LEDs is more than for incandescent or CFL bulbs. However, the significant energy savings that they provide will soon pay for themselves.
