Have you made the switch to high-efficiency LED bulbs? You may know that LEDs use up to 80 percent less energy than standard incandescent bulbs, but are you aware of all the other benefits they bring to the table? When you install LEDs in your home you'll…

1. Forget how to change a lightbulb.

2. See your home in a whole new light.

3. Enjoy a cozy atmosphere.

4. Improve your options.

Warm (yellowish) light is great for your family room, while cool (bluish) light is better for performing tasks, such as in a workroom. LEDs cover the entire color range, so they can be used anywhere in your home or outdoors.

5. Live more sustainably.

Also, LEDs contain no mercury, a hazardous substance found in other types of bulbs. This makes disposal simpler and easier on the planet.

6. Save You Money.

Choose LED products that are ENERGY STAR certified for quality and efficiency. Energy savings, good color quality and long life; with LEDs there's no reason to settle for less!
