Bright Ways To Save

Bright Ways To Save

(NAPSI)-When it comes to saving energy in your home, lighting is an easy place to start, with many simple ways to save, according to Edison Electric Institute.
Here are a few bright ideas that may help you become more energy efficient:
_ Dust lightbulbs and fixtures regularly.
_ Provide task lighting over desks, tool benches and the like so you don't have to light the whole room.
_ Put lamps in corners of rooms so the light will reflect off two walls.
_ For lamps that are on more than two hours a day, use compact fluorescent bulbs-they use up to 66 percent less electricity than incandescent bulbs. A 23-watt compact fluorescent bulb can replace a 100-watt incandescent.
_ Use dimmable incandescent bulbs wherever possible.
_ Install photoelectric controls or timers to turn outdoor lighting off and on each day.

Compact fluorescent bulbs last about 10 times longer than incandescents.
