Aventura Condos, Sunny Isles Condos, Golden Beach Homes Make Energy Change

I found the details about the first step people can take to save energy in either their Aventura Condos, Sunny Isles Condos, or Golden Beach Homes. The answer is LED light fixtures. The difference between incandescent and LED is the following: incandescent lighting consume 5,135 Watts (65 W per bulb), while LEDs consume 948 Watts (12W per bulb).

According to LED Lighting Fixture, Inc.’s, “On average in the United States, running a 65-watt light for 50,000 hours would cost $325 in electricity alone. Because the LR6 uses only 12 watts, running the light for 50,000 hours will cost only $60 under the same scenario. In addition, you will no longer spend time or money replacing lights. Over the lifetime of one LR6, you will save $265 dollars or more on your electric bill alone."

These numbers are very clear if you can make the change you should. If you cannot make the change you should pass the information on to others because maybe they can and will make the change. Spread the word. So if you are buying or selling a Aventura condo, Sunny Isles condo, or Golden Beach home make sure to consider LED. Aventura is striving to "go green," changing the lighting would be an excellent start. Imagine if the Aventura Mall changed it's lighting. How about if all real estate in Aventura was lit by LED? The change would be tremendous.

Let's make the first change in the places we live!
