Light Bulbs Can Reduce Your Energy Bill
Light Bulbs Can Reduce Your Energy Bill. Light bulbs can help to reduce your energy bill and don't cost as much as other products. Consider that light bulbs are readily available and prices have reduced significantly since they were first introduced.
Lighting a room has often taken a backseat when consumers consider energy efficient ideas. After all, how often do you change a light bulb? And incandescent bulbs use more energy than CFL's and LEDs, which bridges the gap between cost and energy efficiency.
LED bulbs can last up to 10 years and cost less to produce more light versus regular incandescent and CFL bulbs. According to a blog by the Salt River Project (SRP) in 2019, LED lightbulbs cost 75% less to operate and have MANY benefits. An interesting bit of summertime heat gain information; LED bulbs expend 95% of their energy to light the way versus adding heat to a room.

LED bulbs now produce a variety of colors and brightness of bulbs for any area in and around your home and are good for indoor gardens. So consider the location of where the bulb will be located and how much light is needed.
Recently I purchased LED bulbs with light sensors for my outdoor lights to come on automatically at dusk and off at sunrise. I no longer have to remember to turn them on or off, which might be saving me energy but also produces a level of security if I’m away from home.
If you purchase LED bulbs, make sure to look for the Energy Star (ES) label. Without the ES logo, you may not be getting a 10 year light bulb.
