Which Type of Light Bulb is Best?

Did you know that you could save up to $75 or more on your annual electricity bill simply by replacing your home’s 5 most-used light fixtures or bulbs with Energy Star models? That may not sound like a significant savings right off the bat, but think about how many light bulbs and fixtures you actually have throughout your entire home. If your house contains 100 bulbs and you can save $75 for every 5, you do the math!

So, which type of light bulbs should you consider replacing? Compared to more energy efficient light bulbs such as halogen incandescents, compact fluorescents and LEDs, traditional incandescent bulbs can use anywhere from about 25%-80% more energy. And if that’s not enough to sway you, consider the fact that energy efficient bulbs can last anywhere from 3-25 times longer.
