During a recent trip to Walmart, we stopped by the light bulb aisle to pick up some new bulbs. The GE LED Energy Smart light bulbs immediately caught my eye. First, I don’t recall seeing any other light bulb with a 5 year warranty. Seriously – who puts a warranty on a light bulb? Apparently GE does, because that’s how good the GE LED Energy Smart light bulbs are. The 40 watt GE LED Energy Smart light bulbs can last up to 22.8 years. Can you imagine only having to replace your light bulbs every 20 years?
One of the easiest ways to reduce your electricity bill is to switch from traditional incandescent bulbs to more energy efficient bulbs, like . You may recall that last year, we featured as part of our efforts to reduce our bill. As technology continues to develop, new energy efficient lighting options, such as GE LED Energy Smart light bulbs, are becoming more available (and more affordable.)
To kick off our energy savings, I replaced the bulbs in the vanity light bulb strips in the bathroom with our new GE LED Energy Smart light bulbs. Each strip has 3 bulbs and we have 2 strips (one for each sink.) Swapping out the 75W and 100W bulbs to 60W GE LED Energy Smart light bulbs will save us $35.41 annually. I love how there’s still plenty of light – it’s just energy smart-er.
I’m really looking forward to converting the rest of our light bulbs to GE LED Energy Smart Light Bulbs. Our kitchen and dining area alone has no less than 15 flood lights, most of them incandescent bulbs. If we changed all of the bulbs to GE energy smart LED Floodlights, we would save $99.37 per year, according to the . That’s just in one area of the house!
