LED Light Bulbs: Energy-Efficient Alternative For Denver Homes

Written by Posted On Monday, 23 May 2016 18:32


Using LED (light emitting diode) light bulbs throughout your Denver home is a good way to save money, while still keeping your home well lit, which is no doubt a priority for most homeowners today. Replacing incandescent and compact fluorescent (CFL) light bulbs with LED bulbs is an energy efficient and environmentally friendly choice. A LED light bulb lasts longer and uses less energy than other types of lighting.

Here are a few reasons why LED bulbs are better:

  1. Energy Efficiency. One 11.5-watt LED bulb emits as much light as a standard 60-watt incandescent bulb. That means five LED bulbs still use less electricity than a single incandescent lamp.
  2. Long Life. Incandescent bulbs typically have a life of no more than 1,000 hours, while LED bulbs may have 40,000 hours of life. That is 40 times more. This is especially attractive for light fixtures that are difficult to access, such as vaulted ceilings or top of stairways.
  3. Instant Start. CFL bulbs have a warm-up period each time you turn them on. LED bulbs turn on at full brightness.
  4. LED products are fully dimmable and are compatible with more than 100 different dimmer switches. CFL bulbs may be dimmable but still have a flicker tendency.
  5. It is safe to place LED bulbs in the garbage, after they burn out. CFL bulbs contain mercury and must be recycled using the correct facilities.
  1. LED bulbs emit very little heat. Incandescent bulbs waste up to 90 per cent of their energy in heat. LED bulbs typically waste no more than 20 percent of their energy on heat and are far cooler to the touch.


Using LED light bulbs in your home is one good way to reduce your home energy costs and be good to the environment.
