EcoSmart Bulbs Make LED Lighting Affordable

Home Depot offers exclusive line of $20 energy-efficient lighting.

EcoSmart A19 LED Bulb

The EcoSmart A19 LED light bulb uses approximately 80 percent less energy than a standard 40-watt incandescent bulb and is expected to last more than 22 years.

LED light bulbs are known for being extremely energy efficient. While we’d all like to be green, at $50 a pop, replacing every incandescent for an LED equates to one costly home improvement.

Home Depot, along with the Lighting Science Group, aims to make it more affordable to go green, with the introduction of its EcoSmart line of LED light bulbs. The first product in the line, the 9-watt EcoSmart A19, will retail for $19.97.

The A19 uses approximately 80 percent less energy than a standard 40-watt incandescent bulb and is expected to last more than 22 years. Plus, it’s dimmable, which means it can cut energy costs even more.

The dimming feature also makes the EcoSmart bulb ideal for use with a lighting control system. Per commands from the system, the light output of the LED bulb can be altered to set the mood for any number of activities: watching TV, entertaining guests, relaxing and meditating, for example.
