Reduce Your Energy Bill with These 5 Easy Home Lighting Changes

Posted by

Cost effective lighting

Lighting is an important topic these days. Concerns about the environment have led to phasing out inefficient incandescent bulbs, and now, cost effective lighting solutions, such as affordable LEDs and CFLs, are taking over rapidly. In fact, there hasn’t been so much talk about light bulbs since Edison’s creation changed the world in the late 1800s.

The beauty of transitioning from traditional incandescent bulbs to modern efficient lighting is that you can reduce your energy bill significantly, while simultaneously reducing your carbon footprint. At home or in a commercial setting, simply changing your light bulbs can be a safe and profitable investment. Here are five easy cost saving lighting changes you can make to help you spend less without sacrificing comfort.

1. Replace Your Old Bulbs

The first and most obvious step is to get rid of energy-sucking bulbs and replace them with cost-effective lighting solutions is replacing old bulbs. At this point in time, LEDs should be able to meet the vast majority of your lighting needs. In fact, you can even buy LED bulbs that cast light virtually identical to traditional incandescent bulbs. If you’re not able to find LED lamps for your needs, CFLs (compact fluorescent lamps) are also extremely efficient.

Right bulb for Your Fixture

2. Use the Right bulb for Your Fixture

There are many different types of bulbs available, so just because your bulb fits in the socket of your fixture doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best choice. Do some research online to determine the best bulb for your specific needs, or contact one of our dedicated lighting specialists for some expert advice. We’ll be happy to recommend you cost saving lighting products that will provide the best light quality while keeping your energy bill as low as possible.

3. Use Motion Sensors and/or Timers

Home and business owners often overlook how often they’re paying for unnecessary lighting. For example, at the end of a long shift, it’s entirely possible that someone may forget to turn off the office lights, leaving them lit throughout the night. At home, you may forget to turn off your exterior lights before bed, and you’ll only remember once it’s time to pay an exorbitant bill. Timers and motion sensors ensure that you’re only paying for light that’s actually in use.

4. Adopt Better Habits

Adopt Better Habits

One of the easiest and most direct ways to reduce your energy bill is to simply use less energy. If you’re leaving your lights on when you’re at work or when you’re sleeping, you could be needlessly doubling the electricity bill. Even switching over to cost-effective lighting won’t help if you don’t make it a point to be conservative with your energy usage. Try leaving a note by the light switch so you remember to flick it off your way out. Turning off lights is a major factor, but don’t forget to turn off other electronics and appliances when they’re not in use too.

5. Use Brighter Bulbs and Fewer Fixtures

Why pay to power two lamps if you can get the same light quality from one? If you’re using dull bulbs, you may require more lighting fixtures in order to obtain your ideal level of lighting. Try experimenting with brighter bulbs and higher lumens instead of adding additional fixtures to a room. It’s worth noting that although the wattage tends to rise alongside lumens, the wattage of a bulb doesn’t measure its actual brightness, but its energy.
