Why choose LEDs over incandescent bulbs?
- They use up to 90% less energy than standard bulbs.
- Each bulb can save you an average of $80 in electricity costs over its lifetime.*
- LEDs last at least 15-25 times longer, so you don't have to replace them as often, which is great for hard-to-reach places.
- LEDs come in a variety of styles, lumens and temperatures — from dimmable candelabras to bright spotlights — so you'll find options to fit almost any fixture in your home.

If a CFL should break in your home, EPA provides cleanup guidelines that can be performed by the general public.
More than 95% of an LED bulb is recyclable; simply call your local waste management company to learn its policies for collecting and recycling. Since LED bulbs do not contain mercury and do not require special recycling, non-working LED bulbs can be placed in the garbage.
