5 Benefits of Energy Efficient LED Lightbulbs
October 7 is National LED Light Day! While this holiday might sound obscure, it’s the perfect opportunity to raise awareness about the impact of LEDs. LED lightbulbs are indisputably beneficial to our planet because they consume less energy. But you might be wondering: are they beneficial to homeowners too?
At Blue Flame, we love to recommend products that are better for the environment and for our customers. Here are some of the reasons energy efficient LED lightbulbs are the best choice for your home.
1. Longer Lasting
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, LED lightbulbs are designed to last 25,000 hours or more. That’s 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs! Even if you left them on all day, they would last for three years straight. That means you’ll spend less time and money changing them, and you will throw them away less frequently.
2. More Durable
LEDs use a tiny chip enclosed inside epoxy rather than filaments surrounded by glass to conduct electricity. This makes them much more shock-resistant and shatter-proof. They are ideal for holiday lights and outdoor lighting because they can withstand temperature changes and impact better than incandescent bulbs.
3. Adaptable to Aesthetic
LED lightbulbs are traditionally associated with a bright white glare. But today LEDs actually come in a wide variety of colors and styles, so you don’t have to sacrifice the ambience of a room to save money and energy. Whether you want warm yellow bulbs for your dining room or bright green and orange outdoor lights to celebrate Halloween, you can find LEDs in every color.
4. Better for Our Planet
Energy efficient LED lightbulbs use a whopping 75% less energy than incandescent bulbs, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Widespread use of LED lighting has enormous potential to make an impact on the planet. If all of us used LED lights primarily, we could save 348 TWh of electricity (the output of 44 large electrical power plants).
5. Better for Your Wallet
Since LEDs consume less energy and last longer, they are a better value than incandescent bulbs. Even though the price tag is initially higher, it can take months or years to wear them out. And since they use 75% less energy, your electric bills will decrease.
Reduce your carbon footprint with energy efficient LED lightbulbs.
With spooky season in full swing and the holidays right around the corner, we want to encourage our customers to consider using energy efficient LED lightbulbs. They are longer lasting, less likely to break, and a foolproof method to save some money.
Most importantly, this small change can have a major impact on the environment. Celebrate National LED Light Day with us and reduce your carbon footprint by switching to LED bulbs.
