LED lighting is our preferred lighting type. It uses about 1/4 the energy of standard T-12 bulbs. Not only that, LEDs are noticeably more inviting than traditional lighting, as the light’s wavelength is closer to that of sunlight.
Plus, they last approximately 5-10 times longer than compact fluorescent bulbs and don’t have the environmental and human safety concerns. If you accidentally break a compact fluorescent bulb, it is considered a human health hazard due to it’s mercury content. When it comes time to dispose your compact fluorescent bulbs, to avoid environmental issues, take them to an authorized recycler.
