Energy Saving Tips
- Clean your light fixtures and bulbs regularly. Dust, grease, and dirt can reduce light output by as much as 30 percent.
- Replace old-fashioned incandescent bulbs with energy-efficient compact fluorescent bulbs. Fluorescent bulbs last 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs and use about 25 percent of the energy to emit the same amount of light. They come in a variety of sizes for a variety of uses inside and outside your home.
- Install timers, sensors, photocells, or dimmer switches. These devices help you control how much energy you use.
