Nowadays, most educated people know that even using the same old incandescent light bulbs is quite irresponsible. These lights are just too costly compared to others. So if you wish to cut down on your energy costs, and to do your part as a “green-minded” citizen, here are some of your options for energy efficient lighting solutions. Some are high tech while others are low tech—but they’re all just better than incandescent light bulb technology.
Take Advantage of Natural Light
Why pay for electricity when the sun is right there completely free for you to use? Does that even make sense? Besides, sunlight is healthy for you.
So what you can do is minimize your use of artificial light when natural sunlight is available. If you’re building your home or choosing a shop, it’s a very god idea to design large windows which can give you a lot of natural light during the day. You can always limit the amount of light by using blinds or curtains.
Aside from large windows, you can use skylights too. Some of these windows can be automated so you can open them for better ventilation, and close them during inclement weather.
