Save energy with LED Bulbs


LED (light emitting diode) has unique advantages over incandescent bulbs because they can save you in energy costs and also protect the environment:

  1. LED (light emitting diode) lighting draws less watts than incandescent bulbs – reduction of energy and bulb replacement expenses.
  2. LED Extremely long bulb lives – up to 50,000 hours. CCFL (cold cathode compact fluorescent) bulbs have unique advantages over CFL bulbs and last up to 25,000 hours.
  3. Because both bulbs are run cooler they operate more efficiently and greenhouse gas emissions can be significantly reduced.
