LED—A New Kind of Light
Light emitting diodes, or LEDs, offer better light quality than incandescent bulbs, last 25 times as long, and use even less energy than CFLs. Look for ENERGY STAR qualified LED products at home improvement centers and lighting showrooms.
CFLs use 75% less electricity then traditional incandescent bulbs and last up to 10 times longer.
Why pay a lot for a compact fluorescent lightbulb? Because the real cost of light is not the cost of the bulb, but the electricity it uses. In fact, you can reduce lighting costs by 67 percent by using compact fluorescents.
Turn off all lights when you're not using them.
The next time one of your often-used light bulbs goes out, replace it with a compact fluorescent, preferably one with low mercury content.
Replace all of your often-used incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescents.
Consider reducing your lighting energy use in areas of your home that receive plenty of natural light.
For tasks where you need more concentrated light, such as reading in the living room or working at your desk, rely on localized lamps rather than general room lighting.
Encourage your friends and family to do the same.
Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs): By replacing your regular light bulbs with CFLs you can enjoy the same warm light quality while reducing your lighting energy use by 75% and realizing a return on investment greater than through an average stock market portfolio!
