Energy Savings with LED, CFL and MoreReplacing your higher wattage bulbs with LED or CFL alternatives is a great way to save up to 80% on energy costs. These efficient new lighting options produce the same amount of light (lumens) as incandescent bulbs for a fraction of the electricity. To see a side-by-side comparison, you can view our watts-to-lumens chart. For incandescent bulbs, dimmers can be installed to reduce energy costs. Because they limit the amount of power to the light source, dimmer save electricity and can also extend the life of a bulb. Not all LED and fluorescent lighting is dimmable however, so be sure to verify before you buy. For this and any other bulb questions, feel free to call us at 800-782-1967. We're here to help.
