Go green!

How am I benefiting the environment?

Incandescent light bulbs put carbon dioxide, sulfur oxide and nuclear waste into the landfills and the atmosphere. By changing your light bulbs to low energy LED, one single bulb keeps one half ton of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere through its life cycle. It will also keep the sulfur oxide and nuclear waste to a minimum in the landfills and environment. By switching one bulb in your home and in every home throughout the United States, the environmental concerns being discussed with fervency these past couple of years can begin to be addressed on a global scale.

How much more efficient are LED lights as compared to incandescent bulbs?

LED lights last 10x longer than a regular incandescent bulb and are 4x more efficient. LED lighting uses nearly 80% less energy than an incandescent bulb does, which translates to financial savings for you and a cleaner environment for everyone.

How else can I utilize LED lighting solutions?

LED lighting benefits you in your home. Considering LED lights during the Christmas holiday is a great way to save energy. LED lights are cool and energy efficient during that time of the year when energy usage rises significantly. LED lanterns and flashlights are great for camping and hunting as well as a vital part of any home emergency kit. In implementing LED bulbs in your home, you will have less stress of having to worry about bulbs burning out when they are most needed.

Are LED lights more expensive? Will I save money over time??

Though currently more expensive to purchase up front, LED lighting fixtures will save you in long-term operational costs. LED home lighting only uses one third of the energy that an incandescent bulb uses. An 18-watt LED light can replace a 75-watt incandescent bulb; in the lifetime of that 18-watt LED light (which is 10x longer than the incandescent) you will save 570 kilowatts of energy. This would save you roughly $50 on your energy bill. An LED light, no matter 18-watt or 200-watt, easily pays for itself in its lifetime.
