When converting your home's lighting, light bulbs are the place to start! Swapping out your fluorescent lights with LED or CFL (Compact Fluorescent Light) bulbs means your light fixture can consume up to 90 percent less power. LED light bulbs are also free of mercury and other hazardous substances and have a longer lifespan than their incandescent counterpart. These days LED bulbs come in many different sizes and even your track lighting can be switched to LED bulbs.
Swapping out your bulbs is an inexpensive way to make a positive impact on the environment and is super easy to do!
Use the power of the sun! Solar powered light fixtures come with built in solar panels that charge up during the day and continue to shine bright at night. You can get solar powered landscape, deck, and string lights to lower the cost of your energy bills and help reduce your carbon footprint.
Tip: Solar lighting systems also require little maintenance and can last up to 10 years!
Another great eco-friendly option is motion sensor lighting! These lights make great outdoor security lights, and they only go on when needed. You can attach a motion sensor to your front porch lights or buy floodlights with a built-in sensor.
But don’t stop there! Did you know that you can also use motion sensor lights inside your home? They are great for commonly used areas like the bedroom, bathroom, or laundry room. You'll never have to remember to turn the lights off again!
It is easy to make eco-friendly choices with a smart lighting system! Did you forget to turn off a light while you were rushing to work? Don’t worry about wasting energy because with a quick tap on your phone, you can shut off your kitchen lights from wherever! Plus, most smart light bulbs are LED.
Another feature of smart lights is the ability to set timers that automatically dim or turn off your lights, and many smart lighting systems have built-in motion sensors!
Is it time for a lighting upgrade? You'd be surprised how much a new light fixture can help reduce your carbon footprint. Look for light fixtures with the EnergyStar logo on them, which means they are proven to run as efficiently as possible.
Look for lamps that are made from natural or recycled material. It’s also important to look into how the lamps are manufactured, packaged, and shipped — you'll want to choose the light fixture that has the least-wasteful method.
