Replacing Incandescent Bulbs and Old Fixtures
The classic lighting Americans have used for generations, incandescent bulbs are still the option with the lowest initial cost. However, they operate at the low end of efficiency ratings, produce a lot of heat, and burn out sooner than modern fluorescent and LED bulbs. This means incandescent bulbs end up costing you more over time.
Due to a law passed in 2007, the traditional 40- and 60-watt versions are no longer produced in the US as they don’t meet current energy-efficiency requirements. As they burn out, consider replacing the relatively inefficient incandescent bulbs in your home with one of the following options:
Florescent Lighting and CFLs
On average, fluorescent bulbs and compact florescent lamps use 75% less energy to produce the same amount of light as an incandescent bulb. Combined with an average lifespan that is up to 10 times longer than incandescent models, florescent bulbs are a good choice for saving on energy bills.
Halogen bulbs are similar to incandescent bulbs, but operate at a much higher temperature range and produce a whiter light. They tend to be more expensive than incandescent bulbs, but are more energy efficient.
LED lights have come a long way over the last decade. Originally developed in the 1960s, recent improvements in this technology have made LEDs the preferred bulb for their long lifespan and extremely low energy usage. They are available in a wide variety of shapes, wattages and temperatures.
Ceiling Fan Installation
Installing a new or upgraded ceiling fan helps to keep your home comfortable by increasing air circulation. This works to even out hot and cold spots in your home so your heating and cooling system doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the desired temperature. New, energy-efficient ceiling fans use very little electricity, and many models include light kits for adding LED illumination to your room.
