LEDs, CFLs, and Incandescent Bulbs: Comparisons

Keep lights off in rooms when they are not in use or have motion-activated lights installed in rooms that are frequented on and off. You will save quite a few dollars on your electric bill each month! Inquire with one of our trusted contractors on more ways you can save on your energy bills.

Comparing the energy efficiency of LEDs, CFLs and incandescent bulbs:

The perfect light fixture is the one that emits the most light with the least amount of energy consumed. LED light bulbs are the most energy-efficient and produce 90 to 112 lumens per watt. Compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) produce 40 to 70 lumens per watt, while traditional incandescent bulb fixtures only produce 10 to 17 lumens per watt. LED lights are the best choice for your home if you are looking to save money on your energy costs. However, CFLs are a better choice over incandescent bulbs.
