LED(Light Emitting Diode) lighting is another solution that is readily available these days. One of the nice things about LED lighting is that the energy consumption is a fraction of even what a CFL consumes. The light quality of an LED bulb is also very good, plus it contains no mercury like a CFL. Most of the LED lights are fully dimmable too, which is another added benefit. Though they are more costly initially – LED lights will likely outlast everything else in your home (and save you money each month).
