LED chip manufacturer Cree has introduced a new LED bulb that offers you the best reason to switch from inefficient incandescent light bulbs – YOU SAVE MONEY! Using Cree’s energy efficient LED light bulbs will give you the same warm lighting that has always been provided by incandescent bulbs. That warm lighting is so important, because it’s what makes a house feel like a home for so many people. Cree’s new bulb has numerous other benefits, including: using only a fraction of the energy required by an incandescent bulb, having a long lifespan, free of harmful mercury(included in CFLs) and finally, being affordable.
The LED bulbs manufactured by Cree are designed for use by home and business owners. LED bulbs are not meant to be another throwaway or disposable bulb, but rather a permanent fixture. You simply screw the LED bulb into any standard light fixture.
Don’t Trash These Bulbs!
LED bulbs have no filament used to produce the light. This means that LED bulbs will last much longer than standard light bulbs. Longer lasting bulbs means you don’t need to spend money replacing old bulbs and adding to the millions of other trashed, old bulbs that are dumped in our landfills each year.
The low amount of heat generated by an LED bulb means that they are the best choice for an energy-efficient home. You can save up to 84 percent of the energy that is consumed by standard light bulbs. One additional benefit of LED bulbs is they do not contain harmful mercury that is found in CFL bulbs. This means that no extra steps need to be taken when you eventually need to dispose and replace your LED bulbs.
25 Times Longer
The use of Cree’s innovative LED Filament Tower Technology means that they can produce these LED light bulbs at an affordable price of $10 each. Until now, these types of bulbs have been priced from $20-30 a piece. The bulbs offer the warm lighting you love, while lasting 25 times longer than a standard incandescent bulb. Cree is introducing LED lighting as a way to help reduce energy bills and eliminate the wasteful energy use by homeowners and businesses. Another advantage of Cree’s LED bulb is that it can easily be used with a dimmer switch or any three-way lamp.
Watt LED is right for you?
The price of Cree’s energy saving LEDs varies based on the wattage of the bulb. The cheapest bulb that you can purchase is their 40-watt bulb(measured in Incandescent Bulb equivalents). The 40-watt bulb is inexpensive and sells for $9.97. If you are looking for a higher wattage light, then a 60-watt warm white bulb or day light bulb is available at a price of $13.97. The cost is offset by the 25,000-hour lifetime of the bulb. The 40-watt bulbs will have a color temperature of 2700k and the 60-watt bulbs will have a color temperature of 5000k. We’ll make it easy for you to understand “Incandescent Bulb equivalents, “Color Temperature” and more. Check out our How to Guide to choosing LED Bulbs.
The energy consumed by the Cree LED light bulbs is a trickle. Their 40-watt bulb uses six watts of energy and their 60-watt day light bulb uses only 9 watts. The warm white bulb will use the most energy at a miserly high of 9.5 watts. You can purchase the new Cree LED light bulbs at HomeDepot.com or at any Home Depot store.
