Hostess: So I’m back here with Ann Richmond
form Earth 911 and we want to talk about lighting for the home. So can you give us some tips
and reminders on how we can conserve electricty? Ann: Sure, I think one of the easiest things
for people to do as far as conserving energy is just turning off the lights. So if you
are not in a room for an extended period of time, as you walkout turn it out. I realized
it’s a challenge for kids and adults sometimes, but its a very important thing to conserve
energy. Also, it adds to the heat of the house as well. One thing to keep in mind. If you’ve
got the older incandescent light blulbs, those can now be replaced by new Compact Fluorescent
Light bulbs called CFL’s. Which are much more energy efficient. Incandescents basically
don’t last as long. They’re a litle less expensive but they don’t last on the long term. Hostess: Will this save me money? Ann: Oh yes! It’s a little bit more expensive
initially, but is can last up to 5 years. Hostess: Great Ann: It will save you about $30.00 on your
electric bill. Hostess: It does the same effect. Anne: Exactly Hostess: How easy is it to install? Ann: Well, why don’t ou give it a try. Hostess: All right. Ann: You can take out that one and put this
one in too. Hostess: Are you sure? Now when I think of
electricity, we’ve all had our fathers tell us as we were growing up “turn off the light!”. Ann: Turn off the lights. Hostess: So its the same idea. Anybody can
do this. Ann: (Laughing) Sure, here I’ll take that
one.
