Looking for bright ideas to save money and be energy efficient at the same time? It’s easy to be “green” when it comes to lighting. Try making the switch from incandescent bulbs to compact fluorescent (CFL). CFLs use more energy for actual light output than incandescent, which wastes 95% of its energy on heat. CFLs can last over 4 times longer too which makes them an excellent choice for hard to reach areas. Dimmable and 3 way bulbs are available.
Another bright option for energy efficient lighting is LED (light emitt ing diode). Did you know that a 3 watt LED light can last for up to 50,000 hrs, as compared to CFLs (up to 10,000) and standard incandescent (up to 1,000)? Now that’s efficient! Though the initial cost is more than traditional lighting, CFLs and LED bulbs last longer and save you money on overall operating costs in your home.
