Save Energy the Easy Way

The positive outcome of saving energy is undeniable: it reduces air pollution while reducing your energy bills. You can take many steps to keep energy bills from soaring while also doing your part to protect the environment. These include:
  • Turn off lights and equipment when not in use.
  • Replace incandescent lamps with compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs). Compact fluorescent lights use one-fourth the amount of electricity that incandescent lamps use, and they last seven times longer. They pay for themselves.
  • Use task lighting, which allows lighting to be applied directly to a task rather than illuminating an entire room.
  • Install occupant sensors for lighting. They turn lights on automatically when someone enters a room, and reduce energy use by turning lights off when the last occupant leaves.

What Does Your Outdoor Lighting Communicate?

Over the years, outdoor lighting has grown far beyond the simple porch light and says much more than “The front door is this way.”
Outdoor lighting is an investment, increasing saleability of your home. Outdoor lighting adds visual appeal, making your home more attractive. It increases security, by exposing places a criminal might hide. And it increases personal safety, by displaying walkways and entrances.
So, you ask, what doesn’t lighting do? Well, it doesn’t install itself. But we can help with that!


The Electric Fire Starter

Home features that produce heat also produce a fire risk. This is why heating equipment is the leading cause of home fires from December to February. To prevent fires, the National Fire Protection Association recommends:
  • Have fixed space heaters installed by or checked by a qualified technician.
  • Keep any flammable material at least 36 inches away from space heaters.
  • Electric space heaters should come with an automatic shut-off function.
  • Install a Carbon Monoxide alarm in a central location outside each sleeping area.
