- Choose energy efficient lighting such as fluorescent tubes, compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and LED bulbs. Using a 60W incandescent light bulb instead of a 9W LED bulb may cost you about $15 more in electricity bills per bulb per year*.
- Design your home to make the most of the natural light available. Position chairs or tables where there is natural light. Use light-coloured, loose-weave curtains on your windows to allow daylight to penetrate the room while preserving privacy.
- Brighten the room with lighter colours. Use lighter colours in areas where you want to be bright, as lighter colours reflect more light.
