As much as St. Louis homeowners want to switch to LED light bulbs, the biggest factor holding them back will always be price.
True enough, LEDs are considerably more expensive than your conventional incandescent light bulb or compact fluorescent lamp (CFL). But while their initial cost may be high, LEDs pay for themselves in the long run thanks to their energy efficiency, durability, and long lifespan.
What’s more, LED prices continue to fall each year, making them more accessible to regular homebuyers. Listed below are a few of the best budget-friendly LED light bulbs you can buy right now.
