Switch To Energy-Efficient Light Bulbs And Save More Than Half!
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Americans spend about 90% of their time indoors these days. That means we should give some thought to the lighting in our homes and consider making them more energy-efficient. The good news is that there are so many energy-efficient options and a broader range of technologies. Greener lighting can make a significant impact on your pocketbook. By the year 2020, government implemented bulb efficiency standards will have saved the country more than $12.5 billion annually! Each household would see energy savings of about $85 a year.
Switching from incandescent to compact fluorescent bulbs is a great way to save energy and cost. You could cut your energy bill by as much as three-fourths a month.
Fluorescent bulbs, dimmer switches, motion sensors and LED bulbs are also all great energy-efficient alternatives to the regular light bulb. Making the switch now to these greener options will help you save money down the line and you can sleep good at night knowing your carbon footprint is a little lighter.
