Energy Efficiency
Home buyers in the 90's are increasingly concerned about the rising cost of energy. It is common for buyers to ask about utility costs and the energy efficiency when they are considering a home. One way to reduce energy costs is as simple as changing your light bulbs--from standard ones to compact fluorescent bulbs which are designed to fit most standard light fixtures and lamps.

The initial purchase price of compact fluorescent bulbs may seem a little steep--they average between $13 to $20 per bulb, but they last at least 10 times longer than a standard light bulb and will reduce your energy bills significantly. Manufacturers estimate that during the life of a single bulb you will reduce your electric bill by over $40. As an added bonus, the electric company will be able to reduce carbon dioxide emission by approximately half a ton per replacement bulb. Compact fluorescents don't work with dimmer switches, and if used outdoors, you should make sure that the fixture is well-ventilated and protected from rain.
