LED and CFL use different technologies. In CFL, argon and mercury vapors used inside glass tubes that through vapors whicg creates visible light. In LED alternates currents with a positive and negative charge quickly to generate energy in the form of light. An LED generates immediate light that also is dimmable, while a CFL must warm up for a few seconds before reaching its brightest level. led bulb will cost $3-$4 for a standard bulb or sometimes less. 10 watt LED buld does the same work as compoared o 60-watt incandescent bulb. This would be money saving.
