Energy-Efficient Lighting Solutions for Your Mount Dora Apartment
Installing energy-efficient light bulbs in your Veranda apartment home is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint while helping save money on your monthly energy costs. Every day, newer and more consumer-friendly, energy-efficient bulbs are being developed, making this the perfect time to try out energy-efficient bulbs in your apartment home.
The two primary varieties of energy-efficient light bulbs are:
CFLs – Compact fluorescent lamps are fluorescent bulbs wrapped into the approximate shape of a standard light bulb. They only require 30 percent of the electricity of incandescent bulbs, and they last anywhere from 8 to 15 times longer. However, they usually cost upwards of $4 each, about ten times the price of an incandescent of similar brightness. Even so, CFLs will more than make up their upfront cost through their longer lifespan and energy savings down the line.
LEDs – Light-emitting diode bulbs are the most cutting-edge energy-efficient bulbs available. As with any new technology, LED bulbs are expensive, ranging from $15 for lower quality models up to $50 or $60 for the best bulbs available. While these top of the line models last 30 times as long as incandescent bulbs and consume as little as 15 percent of their energy, their expensive price ranges mean that, for now, they are most useful for large-scale or corporate use. Even so, if you want the very best in energy-efficient lighting, LEDs are the cream of the crop.
Regardless of which energy-efficient lighting solution you choose, replacing the light bulbs in your Mount Dora apartment with LEDs or CFLs can help you cut down on your expenses while giving a little back to the environment.
