LEDs Lead in Green Lighting

Out with the old and in with the new this year. Since the ban of incandescent lighting, consumers and business owners are tossing out their T12s, and replacing them with LEDs.

The energy efficient lighting technology last much longer and uses far less electricty than incandescent. “Prices for the bulbs are falling steadily as retailers like Home Depot and Lowe’s sell them aggressively and manufacturers improve the technology.”

According to retailers, LED sales in the residential market were a small 3 percent, but grew faster than those of any other lighting technology. IMS Research, an electronics research firm, believes that LEDs will outsell incandescents in the U.S. in 2014.

While the price tag is higher, consumers are beginning to discover the appeal of efficient lighting including better lighting quality and more flexibility.
