The Energy Savings are Real with Jacksonville LED Lighting
How efficient is LED lighting? The reality is LEDs are up to 75-80% more energy-efficient as compared to typical halogen and incandescent lightbulbs. To put that in perspective, a LED bulb can save you around $8 per month, per bulb. Over the course of the long life of an LED bulb, that can equal up to $1000 savings.
Jacksonville LED Lighting is Environmentally Friendly
When you throw away a fluorescent and CFL lightbulbs, you are throwing away highly toxic bits of mercury. Even worse, if you have one of these bulbs break in your lawn then you have these pieces of mercury to worry about when your children or pets are out in the lawn. Unlike CFLs and fluorescent bulbs, LED lighting does not have mercury in them, and they have helped reduce your waste from their incredibly long life span.
LED Lighting is Very Affordable
Many people automatically assume that LED lighting is very expensive. In fairness, when LED lighting was new on the market years ago it was very expensive. Now, the cost of LED lights is in the same ballpark as traditional CFL bulbs. With the lowered price of the bulb then it is a no-brainer when deciding to make the switch to LED.
LED Lighting Lasts an Incredible Amount of Time
An LED bulb lifespan is mind-blowing. A typical LED light can last around 40,000 hours. This means your LED light will still be around 15 years from now. Since there are no filaments as in a CFL bulb, a LED bulb can last around 25 times longer as compared to an older halogen bulb.
Making the switch to LED lighting a brilliant decision. It helps make maintenance a breeze while keeping your home beautiful at night while saving you money with lowered energy cost and lowered replacement costs.
