There are many things that can be done to save energy and money. One of the easiest ways is to replace your current lighting.  With the technology changing, there are more options available than there were a few years ago.  Each one of these options has its pros and cons, and certain types will work better in certain applications.   One of the most popular commercial lighting is linear fluorescent lights.  These bulbs were the most efficient to run but now they can be replaced by linear LED bulbs.  The LED bulbs are more efficient, mercury free, dimmable and have a longer lifespan.  They also have an optional shatterproof plastic model that can be used in areas where glass in not applicable.   Unlike other improvements this can be done over time.  Just replace each bulb with a more efficient bulb when they need to be replaced.  Below are some of the types of lighting available.

  • Incandescent
  • Halogen
  • Fluorescent
  • Compact Fluorescent Bulbs (CFL)
  • LED
