Energy Saving Lighting Tips

The biggest question we get these days is “What can I do to save on my electric bill?”  We’ve found that most people want to conserve, but not if it costs lots of money or if the light doesn’t meet their standards.  Today’s energy efficient lighting options are economical and provide superior light.  Here are some great ways you can reduce your energy consumption and save $ today.

  • CFL Bulbs – These swirly Compact Fluorescent Bulbs are a great first step.  Pick an area you need bright light, where dimming is not necessary.  Like your basement, closet, or outside.  If you already have these areas covered, think where else you could use them.  Your favorite reading lamp?  Bathroom vanity?  Hallway light?  For every bulb you use, you will reduce your energy usage by up to 75%, and the bulb will last for many years!  We carry many CFL bulbs in varying wattages here
  • Ceiling Fans– Reduce your air conditioning bill by installing more ceiling fans and run them more often.  Be sure fan runs counter-clockwise in the summer to provide constant air movement to cool you down naturally.  Bonus tip – run the fan clockwise in the winter to keep warm air from gathering on the ceiling.  The clockwise motion will move the warm air out towards your walls and down, keeping you toasty. Find a new energy efficient fan here.
  •  Energy Saving Light Fixtures– Energy Star now certifies hundreds of light fixtures.  Most come with Energy saving bulb included.   The most common uses are closets, hallways, lamps, outdoor, but feel free to use your imagination. Browse our ever-growing selection of energy-saving fixtures here.
  • Photocell / Motion Detector lights– Many outdoor lights come with an integrated Photocell, so you never have to worry about the light being left on all day.  Motion lights are great theft deterants too. Browse our Photocell outdoor lights here
  • Task Lighting– Why drown a room with light when you only need intense light in one spot?  Sounds like a job for a good task light. Pick one here to match your style and task.
  • Turn off lights when you leave a room –Pretty simple, because the most energy efficient light is the one that is turned off. 
  • Install a Dimmer –Dimmers are great for using only the light you need, saving you money. Plus you get the added bonus of "setting the mood" and making your room look better.
