LED Lighting

An LED, or a light-emitting diode, or is a type of solid-state lighting that uses a semiconductor to convert electricity into light. An LED light bulb has one too many LEDs in it and can be six to seven times more efficient than a regular incandescent bulb. LEDs also have a life expectancy well over 25,000 hours. If you're in the market for a different kind of light bulb, LEDs should be at the top of your list.

Look for the Energy Star label - these bulbs have higher quality in terms of color, light output and distribution. Look for lumens, not watts. Lumens are a way to measure how much light the bulb produces. Guide for replacing incandescent bulbs:

Also, look for the light color you want. This is measured on a temperature scale referred to as Kelvin (K) from warm (2200K to 3000K) to cool (3500K to 4100K) to daylight (5000K to 6500K). Finally, if you are using it on a dimmer switch, check the label to ensure that you get a 'dimmable' LED bulb.

Saves energy, and lasts longer, than either incandescent or fluorescent light bulbs. A 1600 lumen LED bulb, that can replace a 100 Watt incandescent, will use only about 15 Watts!

It is estimated that by 2027, widespread switching to LEDs worldwide could save about 348 TWh of electricity annually. This is the same annual electrical output of 44 large electric power plants (1000 megawatts each), and a total savings of more than $50 billion per year at today's electricity prices.
