Lent Energy Saving Tip Day 21 - #Lighting


Did you know that incandescent (filament) light bulbs can waste over 90% of their energy in heat? You can reduce your lighting bills and your carbon footprint by replacing old inefficient lighting with LEDs or CFLs which also last considerably longer meaning you do not need to get ladders as often to replace tricky to reach bulbs.  


If you're looking to do even more, consider putting in lighting sensors to turn off lighting when there is enough natural light and detectors to turn lighting on only when people are present.


Now that's a bright idea!
