TOM: Hey, it’s Tom Kraeutler from The Money Pit here at the Home Depot in New York City to highlight some eco-friendly solutions for your home.
If you want a long-lasting, efficient light bulb but you hate those curly fluorescents, try the Cree LED light bulbs. They look and they light just like traditional incandescent bulbs but they use at least 84% less energy and they last 25 times longer.
The secret is the Cree LED filament tower. It delivers an optically centered, balanced light from a real glass bulb that looks just like an incandescent. You’ll get that warm beautiful light that you’re used to and there’s even a cool daylight Cree LED bulb for outdoor and home work spaces.
Cree LED bulbs are also making LED lighting affordable at a price that’s 30% to 50% less than other LEDs. In fact, they pay for themselves in just over a year.
One of the things that I like is it’s a very safe bulb to use. You know how those curly fluorescents, we get concerned if we drop them and they shatter. This Cree bulb has a safety coating on it. If you drop it and it breaks, all of the glass stays inside the safety coating. All you got to do at that point is throw it away, pick up a new one and you’re good to go.
The Cree LED bulbs actually last 25,000 hours and they come with a 10-year consumer limited warranty. Look for Cree LEDs at your local Home Depot in the Eco Options product collection and learn more at creebulb.com .
