Looking to start taking advantage of the savings offered by LED lights, but not ready for a complete lighting makeover? The cost of LED bulbs has dropped significantly in the past year, making it easy to get a lot of bang for your buck by simply replacing your home’s most frequently used fixtures.
The Best Places to Upgrade to LED lights for Energy Savings:
- Kitchen lights, one of the most high traffic areas in your home.
- Lights in living areas, including table and floor lamps, where your family spends the majority of their time together.
- Bathroom vanity lights, which often feature multiple fixtures.
- Porch or other exterior lights, which are often left on all night for safety reasons.
A Worthy Investment
Upgrading the lighting in your home to more efficient LED bulbs gives you the same amount of light for less money. Each bulb quickly pays for itself. In fact, replacing these frequently used light fixtures can save you up to $75 a year, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, who noted that widespread use of LED lighting has the greatest potential to impact energy savings in the U.S. Want to maximize savings?
