Why You Need LED Lights

9:57 AM

We were leaping for joy when our new LED lights arrived from Ace Hardware! Even the packaging was beautiful! We could not wait to install our new energy efficient lights. So, why would we be  excited about such a thing? Let me explain...

1. They are so much brighter.  Just look at these before and afters with the same camera settings.

Do you see that difference??? I had no idea I lived in such darkness. Look at the bright, white, clean light that floods my kitchen! Oh, I  could just go on and on about how much I love these bulbs and about how much better I feel inside my home. They add such a beautiful ambiance. 

Here's another example. We always wanted to add more can lights to our family room because it felt so dark. Simply replacing the incandescent lights with LEDs completely changed the amount of light in the room and we no longer need to add more lights. Hooray!

2. They save you money on your energy bills. I know it seems hard to believe, but these brighter lights actually save you a ton of money on your energy bills because they are so energy efficient. In fact, they use 80% less energy than regular incandescent bulbs. 

3. They last about 20 years. Say what? Although they cost more than incandescent bulbs do up front, they save you so much money in the end. You can burn through about 25 regular bulbs in the time it would take to burn through just 1 LED bulb. And just to help you get started on your transition, Ace has a buy 2 get 1 free sale going on now through November 1st 2015.

Need more persuasion? Ace has a lot of helpful videos on their site that answer any question about LEDs.

So, should you get LED lights? The decision is simple. YES! It's time to make the move to the next generation of light bulbs. I know you'll feel just as happy as we do!
