Can I increase my ROI by replacing my old light bulbs with LEDs?

There’s no need for “sticker shock” when deciding between standard older light bulbs and the new LEDs. At Bulb Direct, we’ve been been in the business for more than 25 years, so we’ve seen trends come and go, innovations fall flat, and great ideas turn into great things. But, above all else, we know ROI is essential to our clients, and that’s why we recommend using LEDs.

In a previous post, we highlighted the importance of switching to energy-efficient light bulbs, and when customers are saving energy, they are saving money. Although halogen and compact fluorescents are also cost-effective compared to traditional light bulbs, LEDs are the most expensive and the longest-lasting; therefore, they’re the best choice.

Because they remain cool and last longer than traditional bulbs, you’re saving money, even though you’re purchasing them at a higher cost. In fact, the average cost per year of an LED is a mere $1, whereas traditional light bulbs have an annual approximate cost of $4.80. This means a definite ROI for small business and homeowners, but think of our customers who have chandeliers, large warehouses, and buildings with many light sources—the savings are astounding.


Saving energy and the ultimate ROI is important to Bulb Direct, which is why we offer more than 100 options for customers to choose from. For more information on our LED offerings, head over to our website.
