“Turn off the lights!” Everyone must have heard this many times but some people still forget when they leave the room. Did you know that turning them off will help you save more money on your electric bills?
Lights are one of the reasons why our bills get out of control. It’s true, we need lights. We need them to add color in our homes or simply use them to see what’s in front of us. It may help us see where we are going, but does it lead us to an eco-friendly path?
1. Compact Florescent Lighting (CFL). You have most likely seen this spiral bulbs being sold in stores for quite some time that you might have even thought of putting those things in your fancy lamps. These bulbs have been recently made to fit most fixtures. And you know what’s great about these CFLs is that they last longer, no heat, and use less energy. Since they last longer, you don’t have to constantly change them as compared with the regular bulbs. You also have the option to have CFLs in yellow to use as bug lights. You can use this during summer evenings to prevent hungry bugs annoying you. These bug lights are powerful that you will not only enjoy bug-free hours, but also being quite energy efficient.
2. Motion-Detecting Lights. Did you know that leaving lights on all night costs more? We may have family members staying out late and would need lights to see their path when they get home. But there are times that we forget to turn them off when they get home. Installing this kind of light will save you more cost. When someone comes near, the light turns on. Once motion stops, it will automatically be turned off. It only lights up when you need it. You don’t have to turn on the light all night and waste energy.
By using these bright ideas, we can not only trim down our energy bill, but also preserve our earth’s precious resources.
