Turn off unneeded lights, even when leaving a room for a short time.

  • Lights generate heat that increases room temperature. Increased room temperature results in higher energy use for cooling.
  • Lighting accounts for about 10% of your electrical use. If your lights off when they are not needed, you will save energy and money.

Consider fluorescent light (CFLs) bulbs.

  • CFLs use 70% less electricity than regular light bulbs, give off five times more light, emit 90% less heat and last 10 times longer.
  • On average, a fluorescent light bulb will save about $50 in electricity costs over its life.

Clean lampshades and light bulbs.

  • Dust obstructs light. Depending on the amount of dust, it can reduce lighting levels by as much as 50%.

Note: Computers, television sets, toasters, and microwave ovens continuously use energy if they are plugged into the electric outlet. Disconnecting these devices while they are not being used will save significant amount of energy. You can save a good amount of money by disconnecting these appliances while they are not being used.
