We all want to do our part when it comes to saving energy, being ‘green’ and contributing to a healthier planet. But when it comes to light bulbs, how do we know which energy saving options are the best? Which bulbs last the longest and save the most energy?
Traditional incandescent bulbs use a lot of energy to emit light, thus 90% of the energy used is given off as heat and is wasted. This is why these traditional light bulbs are being phased out of use. Energy saving choices for light bulbs today includes halogen incandescent, compact fluorescent bulbs (CFL), and light emitting diodes commonly known as LED lighting. These newer choices may cost a little more to purchase, but they will save you money during their life cycle.
Compact fluorescent bulbs are more energy efficient than halogen incandescent, and will pay for themselves usually within nine months of use. CFL bulbs have been shown to use about one fourth of the energy as traditional incandescent bulbs and can last up to ten times longer, providing a quick return on your investment not to mention the time saved in changing bulbs! LED lighting is quickly becoming a popular choice with advancements in technology. LEDs are Energy Star™ rated and use about 25% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs, lasting up to 25 times longer.
