  •  LED bulbs are also good investment (8+ / 0-)

    Even at current prices.  I have replaced all our current spherical bulbs and about half of the floods in the can lighting that lights most of our home.   The floods have dropped by about $5 each since I began picking up one each time I go to the hardware store.   My bill seems to have dropped by about $25-30 per month.  That is the price of one flood.  That puts the time for the return on my investment at about three years.   Even if the bulbs last only half their rated life,  our network savings will be 3 times our investment.

    What I really like with the non-can lights is that if my toddler knocks one over,  it will not break,  and it will not release toxic mercury.
