There's no doubt about it, LED light bulbs are getting the most attention right now - at least when lighting technology and energy saving are concerned. It's amazing how in just a few years, a wide variety of lighting technologies have been introduced to the general public, effectively giving them a good number of options to choose from, but LED light bulbs seem to be attracting the most attention from both consumers and lighting manufacturers alike.
LED light bulbs have a remarkably long lifespan-some bulbs are even rated to last up to 50,000 hours, and frequently switching them on and off doesn't affect their lifespan. Above all, LEDs are the most energy-efficient lighting solution on the market and their solid-state nature also means they're the most durable lighting solution. In terms of savings, LEDs definitely cost more initially-expect to spend $40.00 for a 60-watt replacement-but they save you more over the long run. The good news though is that prices of LEDs are slowly, but steadily falling. While it will take some time for all hardware stores to carry LEDs for general purpose lighting, more and more manufacturers have now begun to churn out their own LED-based lighting systems. This increased influx of LED products into the market only means that prices are only going to get lower...eventually that is.
