Energy Star Appliances
The next time you are in the market for a new washer, stove or any other appliance, look for those with the Energy Star label. Take the time to compare the money saved by buying an appliance designed to be energy efficient.
LED and CFL Lighting
Replace your old light bulbs with the energy efficient LED or CFL bulbs. LEDs are very bright and require very little electricity. If you have an older light fixture, you can use CFL bulbs, which use a quarter of the electricity of the standard light bulbs you buy for under a dollar. Of course, always turn off lights when you are not using them. If your light fixtures are outdated, call an electrician. Fort Lauderdale homeowners can opt for to have newer, more energy efficient fixtures installed.
Eliminate Phantom Energy
Phantom energy is the electric current that still runs through appliances, devices and chargers even if they are not in use. Unplug cell phone chargers and etc… when they are not being used.
