Installing energy efficient light bulbs throughout your home is one of the many ways to save energy and one of the more practical ways to save money on your utilities.
In addition to replacing your old energy consuming incandescent light bulbs with your new energy saving light bulbs, try making it a habit to turn your lights off each time you leave a room. But don’t let the energy savings stop there…
If you have a string of say (4) lights in a particular room, you might consider utilizing just two of the light sockets in that room if it provides sufficient light for your needs.
So what are these new and improved light bulbs called? They are called “Compact Fluorescent Bulbs”, and they truly do “Outshine the Rest”!
These are readily available at your local supermarket and department stores. Although they will cost a little more to put them into your home…….”The Benefits are ELECTRIFYING!”
These energy saving light bulbs put out as much as four times as many lumens per watt. So, if you purchase say a 25 watt fluorescent bulb, you will have as much light as if you were using a 100 watt bulb of the standard incandescent bulb. With this lower wattage use, you will use less electricity and save money.
In addition, these energy saving light bulbs will last you about ten times longer then standard light bulb will.
