LED Light Bulb Purchasing Tips

Today, many of the light bulb replacements are LED. No one has given anyone any hints on just which light bulb to purchase. What do all the colors mean?

Walk-through audits. For facilities that don’t operate constantly, one method to identify energy-efficiency opportunities is a walk through the facility after hours.
