Lighting: Fluorescent and LED Bulbs

Most people know that fluorescent bulbs can last up to ten times longer, but may not realize they also use 70 to 80% less electricity than incandescent bulbs. In addition, fluorescent bulbs are a much cooler temperature, further reducing air conditioning bills.

LED bulbs, although initially more expensive, pay off more than their cost by using 95% less energy than incandescent bulbs and lasting 25 times longer.

Go Green Squads will replace all of your incandescent lights with more efficient bulbs of your choice.
