Depending on the use of lights, household lighting covers about 12% of total annual costs. But we can reduce this percentage if we try to save as much as we can.
- Turn off lights in rooms you do not use.
- Turn off devices such as TV and PC completely, do not leave them in 'sleep mode'.
- Always during the day, let the sunlight reflect through the windows of your house or offices, natural light during the day reduces unnecessary electricity costs.
- Clean light bulbs at home, and do the same for your office, their power drops if they are covered in dust or other dirt.
- If possible install sensors that turn off the lights automatically if you do not need them. This enables savings when you leave your offices or homes.
- Do not leave too many lights on outside if it is not necessary.
- If you use a lot of lights, then focus on using fluorescent, cold (neon) lights.
- Replace incandescent, warm (ordinary electric light bulbs) with fluorescent, cold (neon) lights.
- Fluorescent (neon) lights use 75% less electricity and last 10 times longer than ordinary incandescent lights, so they are much more economical.
