Here’s When LED Lighting Isn’t a Bright Idea
The power bills for my South Florida home average more than $300 a month year-round. So, as you might imagine, I’m all about saving energy. A few years ago I spent close to $5,000 to replace an old central air system. I’ve installed extra insulation, a programmable thermostat, dimmer switches and energy-efficient appliances. You name it, I’ve done it. So when one of my buddies opened a business specializing in LEDs, I lit up. My home is now awash in low-energy lighting. The dark side: My bank account is lighter by more than $400.
