Replacing your home's light bulbs with more efficient models can save you many dollars each year.
Compared to traditional incandescents, energy-efficient light bulbs such as halogen incandescents, compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), and light emitting diodes (LEDs) have many advantages. They typically use about 25-80 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs and last 3-25 times longer, saving you money.
Today's energy-efficient bulbs are available in the wide range of colors and light levels. While the initial price of energy-efficient bulbs is typically higher than traditional incandescents, newer bulbs cost less to operate, saving you money over the life of the bulb. Many of the newer bulbs last significantly longer than traditional bulbs, so you won't need to replace them as often.
