The LED Advantage
The electricity used over the lifetime of one incandescent bulb costs 5 to 10 times the original purchase price of the bulb itself.
Light Emitting Diode (LED) has revolutionized lighting. LEDs are small, very efficient light bulbs. New LED bulbs are grouped in clusters with diffuser lenses, which have broadened the applications for LED use in the home. The LED technology is advancing rapidly, with many new bulb styles to suit all applications. Initially more expensive than any other bulb type, LEDs now bring more value because they use only 2-17 watts of electricity and they also last longer. On average switching, to LEDs form incandescents can make one’s home or business up to 20% more energy efficient.
In 2007, the U.S.A. set new energy efficiency guidelines for all bulbs, which effectively phased out the least efficient incandescent bulbs for more efficient lighting.
According to the US Department of energy, the rapid adoption of LED bulbs will collectively save $265 billion over the next 20 years. This switch will also help eliminate the need to build 40 new power plants and save hundreds of millions of tons of greenhouse gases from entering the earth’s atmosphere.
A cool roof is one that has been designed to reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than a standard roof. Cool roofs can be made of a highly reflective type of paint, a sheet covering, or highly reflective tiles or shingles. Nearly any type of building can benefit from a cool roof, but consider the climate and other factors before deciding to install one. Pair With Solar & Receive Up To a 26% Discount on Your Roof!
A cool roof under the same conditions could stay more than 50°F cooler and save energy and money by using less air conditioning.
Just as wearing light-colored clothing can help keep you cool on a sunny day, cool roofs material that is designed to reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than a standard roof.
Tile roofs can be made of clay, slate, or concrete. Some are naturally reflective enough to achieve cool roof standards, and surface treatments can transform tiles with low solar reflectance into cool roof tiles.
