Earth Day is this coming Monday, April 22, 2019. It is a day where people step back and take a look at their impact on our planet and its future. One of the best things you can do to protect the Earth for future generations is to be more energy-efficient in your home and office. Energy efficient lighting is an easy change that can have a surprising impact on your energy use.
Upgrading your Lighting
Energy efficient provides many benefits besides being better for the planet. Traditional incandescent bulbs and even CFLs emit heat. If you have a lot of lights on in the house, the combined heat from the lights can cause your HVAC unit to work harder to cool the space. Not only do LEDs not emit heat, but they provide brighter light and use dramatically less energy than other types of lighting.
Energy efficient lighting also provides other indirect benefits. Using less energy is better for the environment, and efficient lighting also helps to reduce light pollution. For every home that decides to upgrade to more efficient lighting and appliances, there is a decrease in greenhouse gases. Energy efficiency benefits your home and the environment around you.
Increasing Efficiency Throughout Your Home
Do you want to do more to make your home more efficient and environmentally friendly this Earth Day? Start by having your wiring inspected by one of the master electricians at TriStar Electric. This is a good idea anyway, for safety reasons, but getting any wiring that isn’t working at peak performance fixed right away can make your whole electrical system perform better.
Consider adding one of our energy efficient backup generators. Natural gas and propane generators are great, greener alternatives to older diesel-fueled models. Natural gas and propane burn cleaner and produce significantly less exhaust.
