Lights, camera, action! But mainly just lights. The right light to brighten a home is essential. For reading, for playing, for showcasing, for seeing. What I’ve found recently is that our home is best lit by led power.
We’ve been making a few changes around here in an effort to be more energy conscious, as well as save money in the process. First of all, I make sure lights and televisions are turned off when we leave a room, and I’ve been trying to cut back on our water consumption. This is the fun checklist I made for my kids in our bathroom. You can click on it to download.
I’ve also been phasing out my old light bulbs with the energy efficient GE LED Energy Smart bulbs found at Walmart. What initially sold me is when I learned that one LED bulb lasts as long as 15 traditional incandescent bulbs and uses 80% less energy. After switching to our first LED bulb, though, I also found that I enjoyed their soft white glow better.
Here are the Top 5 Reasons why we’re switching to GE LED Energy Smart light bulbs:
1. Cost Effective
While the GE LED Energy Smart light bulbs may seem more expensive at first, they more than make up for it when you see the reduced utility bills. GE has an energy consumption calculator you can use to figure the annual savings, and you may be surprised at the #LEDSavings.
2. Environmentally Friendly
We’re all concerned with going green and finding the best products available for our family that is also beneficial to our environment, free from toxins. GE LED bulbs are free from mercury, lead and glass, making them so much safer in our home than normal bulbs.
3. The Light is Bright
Lights, camera, action! Have you ever tried to type on a computer by a dim light? Or play video games? There’s not a lot of action there, more squinting. The wrong bulb makes it really hard to see. We switched out our light in the living room with these super bright leds and now we don’t have that problem. My kids are thrilled. Video games, day or night!
4. White Light
A white light simply looks better than those that are more yellow. It showcases the colors of your home in a truer fashion. It also showcases the mess around here, but that’s another story.
5. Longer Lasting
GE LED Energy Smart light bulbs lasts as long as 15 traditional incandescent bulbs, which means they don’t need to be changed as often. This, I appreciate especially for those fixtures that I had to climb on a chair to reach like in the kitchen. It also means you don’t need to buy light bulbs nearly as often.
