Did you know that switching to energy-efficient lighting can reduce your energy consumption by 75% percent? The benefits of this reduced energy consumption are financial and environmental. They can greatly improve the size of your wallet and the comfort of your home.
At Long View Lighting, we want everyone to learn more about the benefits of energy-efficient lighting. Keep reading below for all the perks.
Reduced Electric Bill
People are aware that switching to energy-saving lights will reduce their electricity consumption. But what they don’t realize is just how much it can save.
You can save at least $75 annually by making a few lighting changes. Besides, most LED energy-saving lights only need a replacement every 23 years, so you will be buying bulbs very infrequently. Every lighting switch has an impact and you will notice the greatest savings on your electric bill if you upgrade all lights to LED.
Not only can energy-efficient lighting reduce your lighting costs, but it can also reduce your air cooling bill. Energy-efficient lights emit less heat than their incandescent counterparts. This means you can build a cooler more comfortable home, especially in warmer months.
Reduced Carbon Emissions
Just one LED bulb reduces greenhouse gases by half a ton. Imagine the environmental impact if every bulb in your house is energy-efficient. Now imagine if every household and business used energy-efficient lighting.
Greenhouse gases are the main cause of global warming. Just changing ten lightbulbs can prevent the emission of 3,400 pounds of carbon dioxide. States like California are banning incandescent lightbulbs as part of their greener initiatives.
Longer Lighting Lifespan
LED bulbs are capable of outlasting incandescent bulbs by up to 25 years. A traditional incandescent bulb can last one year on average, but energy-efficient lights can last 10 to 30 years. This saves money, resources, and time.
You will maybe only need to replace your lightbulbs every 25 years, saving you money and time. You save time that would have been wasted searching for new bulbs and changing them each year, not to mention the extra time changing those harder-to-reach lights that might need professional installation.
The lasting power of the bulbs is also better for the environment since fewer bulbs will need to be produced with the increased lifespan. Fewer bulbs mean fewer resources used. Most energy-efficient bulbs are recyclable, creating a closed production loop.
Build a More Comfortable Home With Energy-Efficient Lighting
With energy-efficient lighting, you can build a space meant to last and have peace of mind. Have peace of mind in the fact that you won’t have to change your lightbulbs frequently. You can relax and know your lighting choices are creating a greener future for you and your children.
Start small and change a few lights to energy-saving light bulbs, soon you will find it is worth changing your whole lighting system. Get in touch to learn how to make a seamless transition to energy-efficient lighting with our recommended energy-efficient lighting upgrades.
