You're Doing It All Wrong
Your incandescent bulbs are ruining your tech credStill lighting your home with incandescents? For shame. Sharon Profis introduces you to the wonderful world of LEDs on "You're Doing it All Wrong."
If you still light your home with incandescent bulbs, you are doing it all wrong. Incandescent lighting is an old outdated technology. It's like choosing to use a CRT monitor over a thin Slot panel display. The main issue with incandescents is their energy efficiency. 90% of their energy goes and only 10% goes to light. It's time to switch to LEDs. Just a few years ago LED bulbs could cost as much as $50 a pop. So I get why you didn't go for it. But today, you can buy some of the best LED bulbs for less than $10. And it gets better. LEDs can save you up to 80% on your electricity Electricity bill, thanks to their 20 year life span. That's like five Winter Olympics. [SOUND] And they're not just cost effective, they're also smart. You have Insteon bulbs that can sync with your Nest thermostat. And It can even be controlled with Siri. There's also the Philips Hue bulb. It can be controlled with your phone, and display a range of colors. With so many options for LED bulbs, there's no excuse not to make the switch. And now you're doing it right.
