LIGHTING & CEILING FANS

You may have noticed there is a light bulb revolution going on...

 

As the chart below summarizes, LED lights are the most efficient, the most durable, and over the long term cost effective option. 

 

However their higher cost and variable quality are still question marks.  This affects our ability to fully embrace the technology in our homes.

 

We use CFL and LED bulbs

 

CFL bulbs are our workhorse lighting of choice.  They are 4-6x more efficient than incandescent bulbs and cost effective. 

 

However, as LED options increase and their prices drop we’ll be embracing them whole heartedly and phasing out CFL’s.  In fact, you can see the progression of our lighting selection over time has changed as technology evolves.
