A simple guide to saving money.
Here are some simple ways to reduce your electric bill and save lots of money as quickly as possible. Most of these steps are fairly inexpensive and easy enough to do without having to hire a contractor.
This is a clear win that will pay itself off in a very short period of time. For example, if you use a single 100 watt lightbulb for 10 hours per day and your electricity costs you 18 centrs per kwh ( kilowatt hour), it will cost you about $65 per year 0.18 dollars * 10 hours * 100 watts * 365 days. Replacing it with a 25 watt flourescent light will save you about $47 per year while providing the same amount of light. Don't forget, flourescent lights last about 7 times longer.
Flourescent lights do not give off the same frequencies of light that incadescent lights do. As a result, the lighting does not look as *warm*.. If this is an issue, then consider using flourescent lighting in areas that do not need *warm* light.
