Replacing regular incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent (CFL) or LED bulbs is a big energy saver. Incandescent bulbs release 98% of their consumed energy through heat, while CFL and LED bulbs are much more energy efficient and last several times longer.
CFL bulbs were the first alternative to incandescent bulbs, and they use only about 1/4 the energy of incandescent bulbs. They contain trace amounts of mercury, so they must be disposed of properly when they burn out.
LED bulbs are newer to the market. They're more expensive than CFLs, but they last longer and don't contain mercury.
Conserving electricity serves the double purpose of helping stop global warming and saving a lot of money over time.
