Here are the top 3 reasons to choose LED light bulbs

You can create the right ambiance with the right bulb

More and more people are making the switch to ENERGY STAR® LED bulbs. And no wonder.

Gone are the days when your choice of ENERGY STAR® LED bulbs was limited. Now you can get them for chandeliers, track lights and pot lights — for every use, and every room, in your home. And that cold, blueish light that used to turn some people off is also a thing of the past. ENERGY STAR® LED bulbs come in a range of hues to suit whatever mood you want to create. Choose from soft white, bright white, or daylight.

Combine style with energy savings

Not only do they look good, ENERGY STAR® LED bulbs use 75 per cent less energy than an incandescent bulb and last 20 years based on average household use. That life span is about 15 to 20 times longer than incandescent lighting, and about three times longer than compact fluorescent lamps, or CFLs.

Savings for you

ENERGY STAR® LED bulbs are also great for saving money. When lighting accounts for 15% of home energy use, switching to bulbs that use 75% less energy makes perfect sense. Even switching out a few bulbs will make a difference.

The cost of ENERGY STAR® LED bulbs has really come down in recent years. In 2011, LED bulbs cost $30 or more. Today they cost between $5 to $15, making them an affordable investment that pays off for years to come. And, right now they’re even better value. For a limited time, you can save up to $4 on select ENERGY STAR® LED bulbs at participating retailers.

Let’s keep making smart energy choices. Take advantage of these great savings before Oct. 20. For information on LED lighting and other ENERGY STAR® promotions, visit powersmart.ca/deals.
