LED Light Bulbs: A Bright Idea
According to the 2015 annual Socket Survey from North American lighting leader Osram Sylvania, 65 percent of Americans surveyed have purchased LEDs for use in their homes. In fact, the number of Americans purchasing LED bulbs has doubled from just two years ago.
Recent surveys reveal the reason for the boon in LED popularity is that more consumers are looking for light bulbs with the best brightness and longest life, and LEDs have been shown to outperform CFLs in both areas. Furthermore, the cost of LED bulbs has come down in the last couple of years, making them more affordable. So, while CFLs are still the leader in light bulb choice, LED popularity is gaining fast, and they are poised to become the new leader in lighting.
