All it takes is one person to change a light bulb to make a difference.
Standard incandescent light bulbs revolutionized the world over 100 years ago, giving people access to light 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Yet 5% of the actual energy that is used in an incandescent light bulb is used to generate light, where 95% of the energy is given off as heat.
Fluorescent lighting promised much higher efficiency, which it delivered, but also came with a new set of problems. The extra long life-span promised by fluorescent light bulbs never quite lived up to the hype. Fluorescent lighting is also toxic as each light bulb contains mercury and needs to be disposed of properly. Improper disposal or exposure could lead to brain or lung damage, as well as kidney failure. Another downside to fluorescent light bulbs is the “flicker” associated with the lighting which can be a huge detriment to those who suffer from migraines.
It’s time to move into the 21st century.
It’s also Earth Day.
We have smartphones that can keep us safe, give us directions, allow us to call our friends and family, and more. Yet many of us use lighting technology that was invented over a hundred years ago.
According to the US Energy Information Service, Americans spend roughly 15% of their energy on lighting. The most efficient change any person can make without being a handyman/handywoman? Changing a light bulb to an LED smart bulb. LED lights use far less power than incandescent, and last at least three times as long as a fluorescent. That’s a lot less waste poisoning our landfills, and improved lighting for your health as well.
It’s time to invest in our future by switching over to LED lighting. LED lighting is the most energy efficient way to light your homes. Smart LED lighting with built in WiFi or Bluetooth controls are even better. The best way to save energy – simply turn off the lights when you’re not using them. Smart lights from ilumi are so easy to use and program that it literally will take just minutes to set them up.
My favorite LED lights I have been using are from ilumi. Two years ago the founders of ilumi were backed by startup genius Mark Cuban on the popular investment show, Shark Tank. He saw a bright future with ilumi.
ilumi created smart light bulbs that don’t need a dedicated internet connection to be intelligent. Simply screw in the light bulbs, connect to the lights through your Android or iOS devices, and start saving the world one person at a time. This Earth Day it’s time to make a difference.
