I thought we probably had about 30-40 bulbs in the house. Amazing. 84. We found bulbs in places we'd never been in that house.
I have to say, though, that it made a great difference. We saw in the next bill a significant drop, and I'll tell you now that over the years, we've saved hundreds of dollars on lighting costs alone.
The bigger savings came as our old appliances one by one passed onto that place where appliances go after they die. We now have very much energy-efficient refrigerator, dishwasher, range and oven, and clothes washer and dryer. The refrigerator made the most impact, but all told, our bill is half of what it used to be.
A good article in the Daily Camera gives you some tips that I wish I'd had before we went on our bulb-hunting venture. With the new technologies, it's worth the read, and gets you moving toward saving some serious long-term money.
Call me as you need. I'm always here for you.
Enjoy the day,
