I have made the switch to LED lights within our home. There were a few things that happened with LEDs that made me jump...they've come out with good dimming LED bulbs; they've gotten the price down to where they a reasonable; and they have a ten year warranty on their bulbs (Cree bulbs).
I've seen real savings in switching to LED bulbs. I've seen about a 10% reduction in my electric bill (your results may vary depending on how much you use your lights and compared to your AC and other appliances). These are significant savings that will pay for the cost of the bulbs in less than 2 years...plus, I hope not to change bulbs for at least 10 years if the warranty is representative of the results I should see on the LED bulb life.
I have made a video of some of the bulbs I tried and some comments on them. Also, I have a word document that basically scripts what is shown in the video.
You can get to this video by going to this link too:
