Save on Your Energy Bill with LED Lighting

October 26, 20232 min read

One of the easiest ways to reduce your energy usage and monthly power bills is to switch to LED lighting. Here's an overview of the money-saving benefits of LEDs for your home thanks to our residential electricians:

Lower Energy Use

LED bulbs consume up to 80% less electricity than traditional incandescent bulbs. This adds up to significant energy savings over time, especially when LEDs are used in fixtures that are on for many hours per day.

Longer Lifespan

LED bulbs can last up to 25 times longer than incandescents. With a lifespan of at least 10,000 hours, you'll avoid frequent bulb replacement costs down the road.

Reduced Air Conditioning Costs

Because LEDs produce less heat than other bulbs, they cut down on the amount of heat thrown off inside your home. This puts less demand on your AC system in the summer, reducing cooling costs.

Rebates and Tax Incentives

Many utility companies and state/federal governments now offer rebates, tax breaks and discounts for making an energy efficient switch to LEDs in your home. This cuts the upfront cost.

Better Light Quality

Thanks to improved technology, LEDs now provide light that is comparable or superior to incandescents and CFLs. LEDs come in warm and cool color temperatures.

Added Safety

LED bulbs produce virtually no ultraviolet emissions and infrared radiation, both of which can be harmful over time. They also remain cool to the touch, reducing risks of burns.

By installing ENERGY STAR-certified LED lighting in all suitable fixtures, you can realize savings of hundreds of dollars over the lifetime of the bulbs. Your local electric company may even provide LED bulbs for free or at a subsidized cost to encourage energy conservation. Make the switch and see the energy and cost savings add up month after month. To upgrade your fixtures to work with LED, call JGB Electric in Monmouth County at (908) 461-8718.
