Simple lighting changes can go a long way in saving money and energy at home.
On average, ENERGY STAR® certified LED (Light Emitting Diode) bulbs last at least 15 times longer than equivalent incandescent bulbs and use 70 – 90% less energy. ENERGY STAR certified light bulbs meet strict quality and efficiency standards that are tested by accredited labs and certified by a third party, providing quality and performance you expect.
Before you replace your next light bulb, check the ENERGY STAR website to make the best lighting choices.
Replacing a traditional incandescent bulb with an LED bulb can save homeowners both energy and replacement costs. The average home uses more than 50 light bulbs. Upgrading even one of them to an ENERGY STAR certified model could save you $30 to $80 over its lifetime, easily recouping the initial cost and more.
To encourage New Hampshire residents to switch to ENERGY STAR certified lighting products, the NHSaves utilities work with many retailers and lighting manufacturers to help offset the cost of these purchases for our residential customers.
