Halogen Bulbs

Halogen light bulbs are often advertised as a more energy-efficient way to light your home.  It is true that they are significantly more efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs. But when you compare them to LED lighting, they don’t come close!  The following comparison shows what I mean.

Type of Bulb      Energy Used    Light Produced     Cost @ 5 hours per day for 1 year *

Incandescent        60 watts            800 lumen             $13.14

Halogen                   43 watts            800 lumen             $9.42

LED                             9 watts               800 lumen             $1.97

*Based on a typical cost of 12 cents per kilowatt-hour for electricity. 

This is just more information to help you make smart choices with your energy dollars!
