LED & CFL lighting is far superior to old traditional incandescent lighting when it comes to efficiency and long life. LED or CFL lighting is your best energy buy for several reasons:
1. ENERGY CONSUMPTION - LED & CFL lights use about 1/4 the energy to produce the same amount of light. A 20-watt LED or 26-watt CFL bulb puts out about the same amount of light as a 100-watt incandescent. They save you air conditioning dollars as well. It takes almost 1/3 of a ton of air conditioning capacity to cool or remove the heat generated by 1000 watts of light. That's 10, 100-watt bulbs.
2. LONG LIFE - LED & CFL bulbs last 8-10 times longer than most light bulbs. Old fashion incandescent bulbs may have an average life from 750 hours to 1500 hours. The average life of a bulb is normally shown on the package. New style LED & CFL bulbs could have an average life of 8000-50,000 hours.
So if you hate changing burned out light bulbs and want to be cool with lower electric energy consumption, try LED or CFL lighting whenever possible.
