Led lightbulbs: save energy, save money
The humble light emitting diode (LED) is creating a revolution in lighting. Normal incandescent light bulbs use energy, lots of it. LED lights however, use very little. While LEDs have been making their way into street lights and flashlights, they've yet to fully take off for use in the home. And yet, there are many home use LED lightbulbs to choose from: night lights and flood lights, warm fuzzy room-lighting and trippy colored bulbs. When compared, incandescent bulbs (1000 hours of life) can't beat LEDs (up to 60,000 hours.) So take a look at your options when it comes time to replace your lamp lights, and consider a low-consumption alternative. You could save some energy, and some money.
