The Light Emitting Diode, or LED bulb, is really starting to really make its mark on the green light sockets of the world. In the past they were okay for say dim accent lights, low-voltage landscape lights, or maybe the strings of lights on the Christmas tree; but not for standard fixtures like recessed lights.
Now, as technology continued to develop, you started seeing LED bulbs that cost about $100, which is still a little pricey for practically everyone, but today you can buy one for under $50. That’s still a little rich for my blood, but the numbers do add up better. Here’s what I mean.
An LED bulb lasts about ten times longer than a CFL. That means you can spend about the same amount of money for one LED over its lifetime as you would for the same amount of incandescent bulbs needed for the same fixture.
