Energy Saving Tips

Energy- saving LED light bulbs can last up to 25 times longer than a normal bulb and use up to 75% less energy. So when you replace your traditional incandescent bulbs with the energy-savers, you will pay less to get the same amount of light! Opening the drapes on sunny winter days will let in "free" light and heat! Installing motion sensors or timers on external lights can cut down on energy costs!
