  • Adjust the lighting level to the task at hand. Install the right number of lights for proper room lighting. Position lighting fixtures so as to accentuate specific areas or make precision work easier.
  • Consider installing controls and motion sensors to reduce costs by automatically turning off lights when they’re not needed.
  • Use lightbulbs of the right brightness to ensure you don’t waste electricity.
  • Make the most of natural light.

Choose more efficient lighting fixtures!

  • Upgrade your fluorescent tubes. T8 models are the most efficient choices on the market.
  • Replace incandescent light bulbs with LED bulbs, and use 80% less electricity for your lighting.
  • Replace frequently used and high-output lighting fixtures, such as exterior and high-bay lights, with LED products.

For the most efficient LED lighting products, make sure they are certified by DesignLights ConsortiumTM or ENERGY STAR®. In recent years, the purchase price of these products has dropped so much that the relative energy and maintenance savings are bigger than ever.
