Turn off lights when you leave a room.
Simply turning off lights when no one’s around can lead to impressive cost savings.
Replace old bulbs.
ENERGY STAR–certified LED bulbs have come down in price making them affordable. Today’s models provide similar light quality to your old bulbs and can save $40 to $135 over their lifetime.
Use solar lights outside
Small solar–powered lights for lining your driveway and walkways are inexpensive, economical, and attractive.
lights for the holiday’s
Little changes in decoration add up, especially when you’re talking about 1,000 holiday lights.
Install dimmers on overhead lights
Instead of stark on/off switches, dimmers help you adjust the mood while saving energy.
Use task lamps for small jobs
Lots of activities don’t require you to light the whole room. For example, use a reading lamp for just the amount of brightness you need.
Use motion detector lights
Since they only come on when they’re needed, these lights are convenient and efficient options for both indoors and outside.
