Use low-watt bulbs where lighting is not critical.
Place floor lamps and hanging lamps in corners. The reflection off the walls gives you brighter lighting.
Turn off outdoor lighting during the day. Use timer switches or photoelectric controls so you don't have to remember to turn it off every day.
Replace incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs). Incandescent bulbs release about 90 percent of their energy in the form of heat, not light. CFSs use 75 percent less energy and last 10 times longer.
Consider using Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) where possible. Low-powered LEDs have been used for years to illuminate buttons on stereos and computers, but newer, high-powered LEDs can be used in some standard lighting fixtures. As LED technology improves and prices drop, this type of lighting will probably be much more popular in homes.
