Saving Energy is a SNAP: Lighting
The lighting in your household accounts for about 11% of your monthly energy costs, so here are some tips to help you reduce that amount.
- Decorate with lighter colors that will reflect the daylight or keep curtains open so you can keep the lights turned off.
- Use smaller track lights, table or floor lamps for focused tasks instead of overhead lights.
- Select Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulbs that fit the task.
- Use only dimming CFLs on dimming switches.
Dispose of old light bulbs at an approved recycle center.
