We’ve been brainstorming lately about how to make the house “Greener,” which means more environmentally friendly. I have always recycled and tried to reduce waste. So I was looking for new ideas. We found out that one of the easiest ways for a homeowner or business to go “Green” is to replace all their old school incandescent light bulbs with new LED Lighting.
The benefits of LED lights are their lower energy use, they have a longer lifetime, and they are brighter in spite of a smaller size. It is much faster switching on LED lights, and they are more durable and reliable than incandescent or fluorescent lights. LEDs are found in hundreds of products now – including car tail lights, flashlights, and household decorating.
LED means “light-emitting diode” and they have been in use since the 1960’s, although they are just now becoming popular in both homes and businesses with a variety of sizes, shapes and colors available. The early bulbs were only red, but now they come in a variety of colors. I want to buy a string of LED lights to run over and around the handrails on our deck. I think that will make the evenings a little more magical.
