Experience savings of up to $1-5 dollars per bulb on LED and CFL Bulbs.
There are many benefits to LED and CFL bulbs. Comparing the two reveals that the efficiency of the bulbs is almost identical, within 0.5 lumens per watt. With a lifespan of between 25,000–35,000 hours, an LED bulb lasts 2 to 4 times longer than a CFL, and 25 to 35 times longer than a standard incandescent bulb. A CFL bulb lasts about ten times longer than an incandescent bulb (meaning they need to be replaced less often), making them convenient for most hard-to-reach light fixtures and lamps.
In a household setting, where components and conditions vary, the LED and CFL light bulbs compete closely. Decisions for one or the other should be made based on the goals of the project and you may consider a combination of the technologies to achieve optimum success.
Many believe that with their high efficiency and lack of toxic mercury, LEDs will define the future. Make sure that after using CFLs until they are done, you dispose of them responsibly. Stay tuned on rapidly expanding LED technology!
