  2. Reduces electricity consumption – LED bulbs use at least 75% less energy than incandescent. They reduce the amount of trapped light, by emitting specific direction. Switching to LED bulbs will reduce your carbon footprint by 500 lbs, and save you up to $75 per year.
  3. Safer – Unlike other light bulbs, LED bulbs contain no mercury an Better light quality.
  4. Better light quality - LEDs light up quicker than CFL bulbs, and CFLs use a great difference in the amount of energy needed to generate the level of brightness.
