The fastest way to lower your energy bill

Did you know that, next to heating and air conditioning, your lights consume

most of the energy in your home? In fact, you can lower your electricity bill

quickly – and substantially – simply by being smarter about lighting.

First, consider replacing your conventional light bulbs with the energysaving

variety. You’ve probably seen these at your local home improvement

centre. Compact florescent light bulbs, for example, use up to 75% less


Second, lower the wattage in some outlets. Is it necessary to have a 100

watt bulb in the furnace room? Try a 60 watt bulb.

Finally, think before you turn on the lights. Do you really need them on?

Perhaps there’s an alternative, such as opening a window blind to let in

more sunlight.
