The Incandescent Lighting Meltdown


You know I’m a fan of the CREE CR6 LED light.  Mostly because it performs great.  And partly because it’s energy efficient.

Standard incandescent lights waste about 90% of their energy use on producing heat instead of light.  Think about that in the hot summer months every time you turn a light on!

Well, the folks at CREE found a good way to demonstrate this using the Easter Bunny.

Think about that as we head into the summer cooling season.  You pay to waste electricity on inefficient lighting.  And then you either sweat or pay again to remove the extra heat with your air-conditioner.  A double whammy.
