According to EnergyStar.gov, the average home has approximately 45 sockets or bulbs and believe it or not, about 60% of U.S. sockets still contain an inefficient bulb. One of the easiest ways to save energy is by making sure you don’t have any old school, incandescent bulbs still in your home. An ENERGY STAR certified LED bulb uses up to 90% less energy than standard bulbs and lasts 15 times longer. A single light bulb that has earned the ENERGY STAR can save more than $50 in electricity costs over its lifetime. With certified LED bulbs selling for less than $1 per bulb in stores across the country, this is a great way for everyone to save. Visit energystar.gov for more information.
