Say hello to LED Lucy!
Hi! My name is LED Lucy and I’m the newest bulb on the block. You can find out more about me below.
What makes LED bulbs better?
That’s easy. LEDs use less energy, last longer and are more durable than traditional bulbs. LED bulbs are also versatile, which means they can be used for a lot of different stuff. Today, LEDs can be found in everything from TVs to traffic lights!
Many of today’s LED bulbs are between six to seven times more energy efficient than regular bulbs. That’s because regular bulbs release most of their energy as heat, while LEDs release barely any heat at all.
Did you know most LED bulbs can last more than 25 times longer than traditional bulbs? In fact, a quality LED bulb could run 24 hours a day, seven days a week for over three years before it burnt out!
Since LED bulbs are made without filament (the little wire in the middle of a regular bulb) and don’t have moving parts, LED bulbs don’t break as often. This means less waste, which is always a good thing!
Turn off all the lights every time you leave the room.

Set your thermostat to 78 in the summer and 68 in the winter.
Don't hold the refrigerator door open for long periods of time.
Check windows and doors for air leaks.
Replace incandescent light bulbs with energy efficient CFL light bulbs.
