Get Better Lighting and Save Energy
Singer Debbie Boone was born In 1956 in Hackensack, N.J. She’s best known for her hit song, “You Light Up My Life.” If saving money makes a hit at your house, consider taking a tip from Debbie and saving energy bucks by getting better lighting, too.
Dirty, dusty lightbulbs put out 20 percent less light than clean ones do, often causing you to turn on a second light. Vacuum dust from lampshades. The dust keeps the light from shining through. Together these two things can save as much as $5 worth of electricity per lamp, per year. Plus, you’ll get better lighting to see by.
