Home Depot is offering a 2-pack of Philips 60W-equivalent Soft White A19 LED Light Bulbs for $4.97. These bulbs use 8.5W and produce 800 lumens of 2700K light. Philips says they use 85% less energy compared to a standard incandescent 60-Watt light bulb and cost about $1.02/year to use (assuming 3 hours of use/day at 11 cents/kWH). These particular LED bulbs are rated at 10,000 hours, but it still seems like a pretty good deal considering each bulb is only about $2.50 in this package. At this price, it might be a good way to start converting all your fixtures to LED bulbs. The Philips 60W-equivalent Soft White A19 LED Light Bulbs are available for order now at Home Depot, but they won’t ship until May 7.
