How LEDs Can Save Your Wallet from Summer Energy Bills.

Keep Cool This Summer
Summer is coming. And that means it's time to crank up the air conditioner, put on your favorite shorts that wear and tear has provided with additional "ventilation" holes, and pull out your wallet to pay for that cooling bill.

If that last part doesn't sound too appealing, then you might want to keep reading and see how LED light bulbs can lower your lighting AND  air conditioner bills.

It's hot outside. So there's no reason to build a small fire that's hot enough to make metal glow, right? But effectively, that's what you are doing every time you turn on an incandescent light in your home. In fact, a light bulb gets so hot that you can use it to cook a brownie (think Easy Bake Oven) or the inside of your house.

LED light bulbs are energy efficient for a reason. The process an LED light uses to create light doesn't waste much energy as heat. An incandescent light on the other hand, wastes as much as 80 percent of the energy it uses as pastry-baking-temperature heat. This means not only will you save money on the lighting portion of your energy bill, but you will also save on the cost of cooling your home because they emit so little heat. Your air conditioner doesn't have to work as hard to keep your home at a reasonable temperature.

So instead of sweating it out this summer, consider replacing your lights with LEDs. If your looking for a good source, try our retail website, WholesaleLED.

  1. Don't try to clean house during the hottest part of the day. That's when you should kick back with a fan and a book. Save up the work for morning or evening when it's cooler and you won't have to crank up the AC.
