Top Green Lighting Tips

 

CFL: The better bulb

 

Compact florescent bulbs (CFLs) are those swirley little guys that look like soft-serve ice cream cones. Actually, they come in a myriad of different shapes, sizes, and colors of light. Economically speaking, they're a great deal, too. CFLs cost a bit more than an incandescent, but use about a quarter as much energy and last many times longer (usually around 10,000 hours). It is estimated that a CFL pays for its higher price after about 500 hours of use. After that, it's money in your pocket. Also, because CFLs release less heat, not only are they safer, but your cooling load is less in the summer. CFLs aren't hard to find anymore, and many cities will give them away for free. Wal-Mart has plans to sell 100 million of them.

 

Get the LEDs out

 

LEDs, or light emitting diodes, are a technology that allows for extremely energy efficient and extremely long-lasting light bulbs. LEDs are just starting to hit the consumer market in a big (read affordable) way and still cost quite a bit more than even CFLs, but use even less energy and last even longer. An LED light bulb can reduce energy consumption by 80-90% and last around 100,000 hours. They even light up faster than regular bulbs (which could save your life it there are LEDs in the brake lights of your car). They are almost always more expensive presently, but we have seen the cost go down steadily. It's no coincidence that the Millennium Technology Prize went to the inventor of the LED.

 

Disposabulb

 

Fluorescents last a long time, but when they're dead, they have to be properly disposed of. CFLs, like all fluorescent bulbs, do contain a small amount of mercury, which means they definitely can't be thrown in the trash. Every city has different services for recycling, so you'll need to see what's offered in your area. LEDs, to our knowledge, do not contain mercury, but the jury may still be out on how to best recycle them.

 

Daylighting

 

By far, the best source of light we know is (yes, you guessed it) the sun, which gives off free, full-spectrum light all day. Make the most of daylight by keeping your blinds open (sounds obvious but you might be surprised). If you want to go a little farther, put in some skylights, or, of you are designing a home or doing a renovation, put as many windows on the south-facing side of the house as possible (or north-facing if you live in the southern hemisphere). To take it even further, sunlight can be "piped" inside via fiber optics and other light channeling technologies.

 

Good habits

 

As efficient as your lighting equipment might be, it doesn't make sense to have lights on when no one's around. Turn out lights in rooms or parts of the house where no one is. Teach your family and friends about it too and it will become second nature. If you want to get a little more exact, follow these rules:

 

Standard incandescent: turn off even if you leave the room for just seconds.

 

Compact fluorescent: turn off if you leave the room for 3 minutes.

 

Standard fluorescent: turn off if you leave the room for 15 minutes.

 

Dimmers and motion sensors

 

Motion sensors can be a good way to keep lights turned off when they're not needed, and dimmers can give you just the right amount of life, and timers can be set to turn things on and off when needed.
