Tighter budgets and a growing concern for the environment are motivating many to look for new ways to reduce their energy consumption. Did you know that switching to energy-efficient lighting is one of the fastest ways to cut your energy bill?
In fact, you could save at least $50 a year if you replaced only 15 incandescent bulbs with energy-saving compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) or light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs, according to the U.S.Department of Energy, depending on what your rate structure may be. Choosing the most efficient bulb has gotten easier, too. Efficiency standards are being implemented in phases starting this year. As a result, common light bulbs sold in the U.S. must consume less energy, or watts, for the amount of light produced, known as lumens. Many bulbs already meet these standards, including energy-efficient incandescent, CFLs and LEDs."
