Part 2 Learning to be Energy-Efficient | GE Light Bulbs | Save Energy

Monday, January 7, 2013
As I told you in November, we switched some of our lights to energy efficient light bulbs thanks to #GELighting. We used an energy saving calculator to help us figure out how much we were saving with our new GE Light Bulbs.
The results??

By switching 3 of our bulbs to GE Energy Efficient Soft White bulbs, 3 bulbs to GE Energy Smart Bright from the Start bulbs and 6 bulbs to GE Energy Smart CFL Spiral bulbs.....we will save....$56.37/year!  That's awesome! That's enough to buy a cute new outfit!  WooHoo!
Over the past 2 months we have also taught our girls to be more energy efficient by making sure ALL of the lights are off when they leave a room, leave the house or go to bed at night. It was not easy at first, they did not understand, but after a few days they got it.
So in the end, which bulb won me over? 
I started out loving the GE CFL bulbs. But, after I few weeks I switched to the GE Energy Efficient Soft White Bulbs and I prefer them. To make sure, after a few weeks, I switched back to the CFL bulbs and....I still prefer the EESW bulbs! It is the perfect lighting for my house, it is warm and inviting and that is exactly what I want in energy efficient lighting. I found the CFL bulbs to be too bright for the look I like.

Now that it is January, the new incandescent light bulb law has been put into place. Have you made the switch to energy efficient bulbs yet? You can find great ideas for lighting your home here!
