Being energy-efficient in your home isn’t limited to making the right decisions with your air conditioner. There are a lot of other things you can do to live a greener lifestyle, and we always like to highlight some of those habits and/or lifestyle changes here on the Champion AC blog.
One of the first places you can start is with your light bulbs.
The days of the old, incandescent light bulbs are going away. Those bulbs are being phased out in exchange for more energy-efficient, longer-lasting CFL and LED bulbs. But do you know the pros and cons of these newer bulbs?
This video from Inhabitat breaks down CFL and LED bulbs and explains which ones may be best for your particular situation. Yes, the newer bulbs cost a bit more – but you’ll see the savings on your electric bill and they’ll last several years longer than your old bulbs.
