    Lighting Tips to Save Energy

    With fewer hours of sunlight, we keep our lights burning for more hours during the day. But there are still a few ways to cut costs and energy:

    • Turn off those lights not in use.
    • Open your curtains as much as possible to let daylight in.
    • Dirty bulbs can reduce light output by up to 25%, so keep them clean.
    • Switch to CFLs or LEDs. See a comparison between incandescents, CFLs and LEDs here.
