Did you know⁉️
One-fourth the energy of standard incandescent bulbs can be saved by changing the type of lightbulb you use?
This, combined with their longer lifespan, translates into significant cost savings.
For example, a CFL bulb has a lifespan of approximately 10,000 hours. During that lifespan, it will use 140 kilowatt hours of electricity. At 20 cents per kilowatt hour, the lifetime electricity cost of a CFL is $28. To compare, an incandescent bulb will only last around 1,200 to 2,500 hours. If measured over the 10,000-hour lifespan of a CFL, incandescent bulbs will use around 600 kilowatt hours of electricity, which will cost $120. The CFL will save $92 and 460 kilowatt hours of energy over its lifespan.
Switch out those bulbs and put that money to better use!
