LED Bulbs Will Reduce Your Monthly Electric Bills
Do you like paying high monthly electric bills? Of course not, nobody does. Did you know the smartest (and easiest) thing you can do to reduce your monthly power bills is switch to LED bulbs throughout your home?
Government data indicates that roughly 18% of the electricity used in this country is consumed by light bulbs. Think about that for a moment... 1 out of every 6 dollars spent on electricity is used powering inefficient light bulbs. Imagine reducing that number by 80% or more, meaning only 1 dollar in 30 would be spent producing the same amount of light. That day has arrived! Modern energy-efficient LED light bulbs have made this dream a reality.
What can you do as a homeowner to start reaping 80% savings on the lighting portion of your monthly electric bill? Simply start switching out old incandescent bulbs with efficient LED bulbs. Modern LEDs have many benefits:
- Quiet operation.
- Instant start (no delay).
- Wonderful light in a range of colors.
- No toxic Mercury to worry about.
- Lifespan up to 25 times longer than incandescents.
- They will start shaving your electric bills immediately!
Cost comparison of an Incandescent -vs- LED bulb:
Let’s take a look at how much money you can save by replacing a single 60 Watt incandescent bulb with a comparable 10 Watt LED bulb. Based on typical 3 hours of daily usage, the incandescent bulb would consume $10.20 of electricity annually. The LED bulb would consume a miserly $1.70 of electricity for the same light output. That means $8.50 stays in your pocket, every year for the next 20 years (or more)! Remember, these savings are for just one bulb, imagine replacing every bulb in your home or office. The savings would really add up.
The cost saving estimates on this page are based on the current national average of 14 cents/kwhr. If you live in an area with higher than average electrical costs (New England and Mid-Atlantic states) your cost savings would be even greater. The good news gets even better, with the cost of electrical power always trending upwards, you will likely see even more savings than projected over the lifetime of the bulb.
