How much money are you spending each year on electric bills? It’s probably way more than you care to spend, right? Well, along with unplugging your devices while they’re not in use and turning off the lights when you leave the room, there’s another major energy saving trend you should be following. It’s time to take those old bulbs out of your exterior light fixtures and replace them with LEDs. Why? Find out below:

Ever think about how many hours a day your exterior lights are actually on? Not only are they on throughout the entire night, but most homeowners forget to turn them off in the morning. What does this mean for you? It means power is constantly running which can cause your energy bills to spike.

It’s time to get rid of those old, energy guzzling bulbs and install LEDs. For starters, LED technology has made this type of lighting up to 75% more efficient. They use much less energy than standard incandescent bulbs and can last up to 25 years longer.

What’s more? They’re much better suited for outdoor environments because they’re commonly made with an epoxy lens which is sturdier than glass. That means they’re more resistant to wear and tear from the elements.

We recommend making the switch as soon as possible. Not sure where to begin? Feel free to give the expert electricians at GEN3 Electric a call today and don’t forget to connect with us on Facebook!
