It seems like everyone is talking about going green these days. But what does that mean for you and your light fixtures? Well, Lighting Concepts is going to try to clear that up a little bit. All you need to do is make a few simple switches and you’ll be able to conserve energy and save some money. It’s really quite simple!
- Some of the most energy efficient light fixtures are recessed lighting fixtures. Look especially for ones that are rated for contact with insulation (IC rated). It’s a quick and easy way to save some energy.
- Try using dimmers to adjust your lights when they’re not in use. That way, you can control just how much energy you’re consuming.
- Take advantage of sunlight as much as you can! Use light-colored curtains so that the sunlight gets in during the day. There’s no reason to have all of your lamps on at noon.
- Try purchasing Energy Star qualified lighting fixtures. Energy Star qualified lighting fixtures are approved by the Department of Energy for their ability to light your home more efficiently and evenly than standard light bulbs.
As you continue redecorating and revamping your home, keep Mother Earth in mind. If you’re kind to her, she’ll be kind to your wallet.
