Lights are the easiest place to start, but often a difficult habit to break. It is second nature for us to walk into a room and flip a switch, while it’s not so natural to turn that switch back off when we exit said room. It doesn’t seem like lights can make a big difference in energy intake, but it truly does. If we can just remember to turn off lamps in the home when we are not using them, we can all save money and energy! Sometimes placing notes or signs near light switches and lamps can help family members get accustomed to turning off lighting.
