Week 32: Save money and energy. Switch to LED light bulbs in one room.
LED (light-emitting diode) light bulbs use less energy, last longer and often give off brighter and stronger light than other types of bulbs. TheU.S. Department of Energy calls LEDs “the greatest potential impact on energy savings in the United States” because of the reduction in electricity that could occur if more people switch over to LEDs in the next decade. Plus, installing LED bulbs could lower your monthly energy bill. Convinced? Start by putting LED lights in just one room of your home, and then systematically replace the rest of your bulbs as they go out in the coming months.
