According to Cnet.com,” When congress passed the Energy Independence and security Act of 2007 (EISA). The incandescent bulb’s days officially became numbered. The law mandated strict new energy standards for lighting designed to kick-start a new era of greener, longer-lasting,more cost-efficient light bulbs and this meant kicking outdated, inefficient bulbs to the curb”(Crist). Led is the replacement for incandescent light bulbs. LED lighting is the future now. They are also long lasting, it saves you money and does not pull lots of energy.
“LED stands for Light Emitting Diode”(“LED definition”). LED is the type of bulb that saves you money when it comes to the light bill. It does not pull much energy unlike other light bulbs. Such as CFL and IND. The CFL (Compact Fluorescent Lamp) light bulbs watts are 15 and the IND (Incandes Lamp) watts are very high. The watts for the IND are 60 so its pulling lots of energy. More than both LED’s and CFL’s. The LED watts are low; its 12.5 watts so not much energy is being pulled (Richard). Its more significant to have LED light bulbs. But most common light bulbs that are being used are the IND bulbs. The reason people use this because they are the cheapest. People now and days do not know anything about CFL LED or IND. Most people think just because IND has more watts and they come in packs and they are cheaper that thats the way to go. This its not the right way to go. The more watts the bulb has the more its going to pull. So thats why people think the more watts the more its going to last and the more brightness its going to bring to the house when they are wrong. Its best to use LED light bulbs. Yes they might be expensive for a pack or a single but when it comes to that light bill its guarantee that you would save more money on your light bill than you ever had. You can save up to like 100 maybe even more(“In The Dark”).
Brands of LED’s can tell you the price for each kind of LED bulbs. There is all kinds of brands for any kind of light bulbs. So the average cost of LED bulbs are from $10-$25. “A typical LED uses a friction of the wattage required to power a bright incandescent bulb, and this makes LED’s dramatically more cost-effective over the long run. A 12 watt LED that puts out 800 lumens of light (Lumens are units of brightness for a light source, more on that in just a bit) will add about a buck and a half per year to your power bill if you are using it for 3 hours a day at an energy rate of 11 cents per kilowatt hour(kwh)”(Crist,RY). One of the most expensive LED light bulb is $50. The brand of it is called The Philips L-Prize. “ Its gets favorable reviews, which suggests people are willing to pay more for a high-quality, durable and efficient product”(How To Choose).
LED lights is not only for houses. They have made them for other technologies. For example like for the i phones they have a built in LED light for when you get notifications or calls it starts going off. Now is when iPhones...
