  •  Hmm, looking at it, maybe not (3+ / 0-)

    Depends on the type of bulb you're replacing, I think.  A CFL is comparable in price to an LED, especially taking the 4-8x lifespan into account, but to replace a 4-foot fluorescent with the LED equivalent can cost 40x as much.  This is highly relevant for corporate renovation, and I hope that the prices of the LED strips comes down soon.
    (they're also safer than the fluorescents, since ballasts produce a lot of heat and can be a fire hazard - on the last ship I was on, I replaced a number of fluorescents with LEDs, and in the laundry room, I could see burn marks where the ballast had been igniting lint..)
