Will minor changes to your home’s lighting make a noticeable change on your utility bills? Absolutely!
Little changes make a BIG impact.
An ENERGY STAR-qualified compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) will save about $30 over its lifetime, and pays for itself in about 6 months. Compared to an incandescent bulb, it uses 75% less energy and lasts about 10 times longer.
Nationwide, artificial lighting consumes about 10% of a household’s electricity use. Use of new lighting technologies can reduce lighting energy use in homes by up to 70%. Upgrading just 15 of the inefficient incandescent light bulbs in your home could save you up to $50 per year.
