Replacing inefficient incandescent bulbs with energy efficient LED bulbs is probably the simplest way to lower energy costs. In fact, replacing all of the incandescent bulbs with LEDs in a typical home can save about $3,200 over the life of the LEDs. 

  • Switching to energy saving light bulbs is one of the simplest ways to reduce your energy usage.
  • Replace your old incandescent bulbs with efficient LEDs. Over its operating lifetime, one typical LED saves about $80.
  • When shopping for light bulbs, look for both lumens and watts. Lumens = brightness. Watts = energy used.
  • Use efficient bulbs in the rooms you use most – kitchen, bathroom and living room.
