Do Efficient Bulbs Really Pay?

Posted on: December 9, 2012

Love ‘em or hate ‘em - Efficient light bulbs are the future. CFL’s (Squiggly bulbs) & LED’s claim to save a lot of energy and last a lot longer than conventional bulbs. They are the biggest things since, well, errr... the light bulb. (which was invented BEFORE the automobile)

Needless to say, these new products are not without controversy. And, some people simply hate change, and thus, there is a lot of criticism about Energy Efficient bulbs.

The primary question we want to address is, do these bulbs actually pay for themselves? Check out the video and find out! [Note: the purpose of the video is not to promote CFL's or LED's, but to show the value of an energy-model!]
