Earth Day is a celebration of nature and what we can do to protect her. One way that you can help is to manage your home lighting in a way that increases its efficiency and decreases your energy costs. Here are a few tips that can help you start on this noble goal.
Change Your Lights’ Positions
Do you have multiple lights in a single room? That is pretty inefficient and may require only moving your lights a little. For example, if your living room has three lights, you could remove one and place two near the most critical reading areas. Any more than that is overkill and is killing your lighting efficiency.
Replace Your Bulbs
Are you using the same old bulbs you’ve had in your lamps for years? Replace them with newer and more efficient bulbs. These bulbs are designed to decrease your lighting use and create a brightly lit area. They are perfect for homes that tend to have dark spots and need a little help avoiding those shadowy areas.
Consider New Lamps
Older lamps may have a great style, but they are often very inefficient. Newer ones have streamlined electrical components and more efficient insulation. They are also more compatible with newer high-efficiency bulbs. Consider replacing at least a few of your lamps this Earth Day and perhaps all of them over the next few years.
