Energy Efficient Light Bulbs

Energy Saving LightsDo you remember when you simply had to decide whether you needed a 40,60, or 100 watt light bulb?  Times have changed and your choice of light bulbs can be another source of energy saving.

We used to get bright light from higher wattage bulbs.  Energy-efficient light bulbs provide more light with less energy.  A 15 watt compact fluorescent lamp (CFLs) provides the same amount of light as a 60 watt traditional light bulb.  

In today’s market place you can also choose between halogen incandescent lights that are 25% more efficient and last three times longer than conventional incandescent bulbs.  The CFLs or curly versions of tubular lamps use 75% less energy and last last 10 times longer than conventional incandescent bulbs.  LEDs light convert electricity into light.  They are 80% more efficient and last 25 times longer than incandescent lamps.  

You have many options.  If you do not like the softer yellow light from the energy efficient bulbs, try the bright daylight version of this bulbs.  You will love the bright light and enjoy the energy savings.
