Light Bulb Finder App Saves Energy and Money

Choosing the right light bulbs for your home isn’t easy these days. You have to decide if the right light bulbs are the traditional incandescent, the increasingly popular compact fluorescents (CFLs) or the up-and-coming LEDs. You have to determine power and wattage. Then you have to figure out where to get the bulbs that you want at the lowest possible cost. Choosing the right light bulbs can mean saving a lot of money at the store and on your energy bills but how can you make the right choice when there are so many confusing options? A free app called Light Bulb Finder can help you out.

Light Bulb Finder is a free mobile app that is available for both Android and iPhone users. After downloading it, you can enter in some basic information that will greatly assist you in understanding the most energy-saving cost-effective choice for light bulbs in your home. It’s easy to use and involves the following basic steps:

o   Select the fixture type that you are shopping for. You will see an icon that describes the fixture type but also shows a basic image to help you be sure that you’re selecting the right one. For example, you may select a track light fixture.

o   You will then receive information about the best bulb for this type of lighting. It shows you your estimated bulb cost, the lifetime savings of using the recommended bulb and the annual energy and carbon emissions savings with this bulb.

o   If you like this recommendation then you can select to add this bulb to your shopping list. When your list is complete you can either email it to yourself to take it to the store for light bulb shopping or you can use the "buy online" button to find the best available online price for the bulbs on your list.

Many people waste money on their energy bills because they don’t have efficient light bulbs in the home. This free app can help you start saving on those costs immediately. And since it’s free there’s no harm in testing it out to see if it can be useful for your home.
