Energy efficient appliances can perform better than their older counterparts using less energy and water. Why not apply that same efficiency to your lighting?

Here are a few easy examples of how you can save money on your energy costs:

Open curtains and allow more natural sunlight to brighten your rooms. This small step will provide adequate lighting and but helps set the mood and atmosphere of the room.
Replace your light switches with dimmer switches. This will save you 4-9% on your energy costs per switch. This also extends the life of your bulbs so you’ll purchase fewer light bulbs each year.
Install an automated lighting system. This will alleviate the hassle of remembering to turn off and on your lights. It also will ensure proper lighting in each room throughout the day.
