I cannot afford to replace all my lighting with energy efficient lighting at this time. Is there anything else I can do to reduce my energy costs?
Yes. If you cannot afford a complete lighting overhaul, the simplest method to reduce your energy cost is to replace outdated magnetic ballasts and lamps with newer, energy efficient electronic ballasts and lamps. Other ways you can reduce your energy cost include: replacing fixtures, modifying existing fixtures, and installing occupancy sensors. LED and induction technology is also becoming more popular because it not only reduces energy costs, it reduces maintenance.
