Efficiency – Something We All Want To Have

Efficiency can be defined as when a person is organized and achieving maximum productivity with minimum wasted effort. No doubt, all of us want to be described as an efficient person. However, have we ever thought about whether or not our homes are showing efficiency? You may be confused and not wonder how this could even be possible. No, we are not suggesting that our homes are alive. Rather, here we are referring to energy efficient lighting. Is this something you are familiar with? Let’s discuss a few facts about lighting that shows energy efficiency.

  • You Can Save Yourself Money. All of us want to save money in any way that we can. Energy efficient lighting is one outstanding way that we can save money. Energy.gov says, “By replacing your home’s five most frequently used light fixtures or bulbs with models that have earned the ENERGY STAR, you can save $75 each year.” While this may not seem like a lot of money to some, we can all agree that every lit bit helps nowadays.
  • Heat. Living in Southern California, we are all aware of what it feels like to be hot. We usually expect this feeling when we are outside. However, none of us want to be unnecessarily hot when we are in our own homes. It seems though, that over 90% of energy that is thrown off of bulbs that are not LED is heat.
