Did you know that the average home in the US has 45 lightbulbs? For this tip let’s assume all of those are 60 watt incandescent bulbs and they’re all on.  That’s 2,700 watts of electricity being used.  If you replaced all of those with equivalent brightness LED bulbs which only use 9 watts each that’s a total of 405 watts. Now no one ever has all the lights on but as you can see the energy savings are huge.  Also the color of the LED bulbs are comparable to incandescent or halogen bulbs and they can last up to 30,000 hours.
