LEDs: A Simple Solution to Climate Change?

If you’ve heard one LED lighting pitch, you’ve heard them all. But did you know that the benefits of LED lights ripple out and help create waves of change in our world? LEDs do so much more than simply save you money on your energy bill. Simply by switching to LEDs in your home or business, you could be improving the life of your loved one’s as well as the world we share.

LEDs: Keeping Your Wallet Full and Your Air Clean

If you’ve visited our site before, you’ve probably heard us say that LEDs save you money. How do they save you money? LED bulbs use approximately 70 to 80 percent less energy than traditional bulbs. This reduces the need to burn that much more coal when using LEDs. The less coal we burn, the more money we save ourselves and our energy companies. But the benefits grow from there. Due to reduced coal usage, LEDs help create cleaner air for children and others who suffer from asthma, heart disease and respiratory issues.

LEDs: The First Step to a Climate Change Solution

2015 was the warmest recorded year since 1880. 15 of the 16 warmest years on record have occurred since 2001. Climate change can have detrimental effects on our wildlife population, ocean levels and ecosystem. While groups such as NextGen Climate are working toward creating more clean energy options to help keep climate change at bay, there’s a simple way we can all make a difference. By simply replacing 1 bulb in every household with an Energy Star rated LED light, we could prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to that of 550,000 vehicles. It may not halt climate change, but it’s a start.
