Money-Saving Lighting Tips

  • Turn off lights when not in use
  • Place light reflecting floor lamps and hanging lamps in corners or near walls to produce better room lighting
  • Replacing incandescent bulbs with CFLs or LEDs reduces heat — your air conditioner won’t need to work as hard
  • Place ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs in fixtures you use most frequently — certain CFLs are designed to work in dimmable, three-way fixtures that are hard to reach, such as ceiling fans and outdoor light fixtures
  • CFLs and LEDs last longer and won’t need to be changed as often as an incandescent bulb
  • ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs come in a variety of sizes — today’s CFLs are designed to be smaller and thinner than earlier models
  • Replace incandescent fixtures with ENERGY STAR qualified CFL fixtures
