Lighting Your Home: How to Conserve Energy

November 10, 2011

Did you know the lighting in your home can account for 20% of your household’s annual electricity usage? As we always try to help homeowners remodel their home in a way that conserves energy and saves money, we like to recommend Lutron switches as an eco-friendly home lighting option.

Replacing your light switches with dimmers is an extremely easy improvement to make during a home remodel – or anytime. Lutron is known for dimmer switches that reduce energy consumption and lower the amount you spend on electricity each year. In fact, replacing a single light switch with one of their dimmers can potentially save you $30 annually. The company even has a line of light switches designed to automatically reduce your energy by 15% or more.
