Keeping the Lights on in Your Indianapolis Rental Home While Going Green

Indianapolis Rental Property with the Interior Lights on at SunsetOnly a few things have a bigger return on your Indianapolis investment property when it comes to energy efficiency than switching to efficient light fixtures and bulbs. Clever lighting choices can help both you and your tenants to set aside a lot of money by bringing down the amount to be paid in the utility bills, improving safety, and decreasing the time spent on bulb replacement.

As said by the US Department of Energy, by changing at least five standard lightbulbs with upgraded energy-efficient bulbs, you will save at least $45 each year. It is reasonable to believe that exchanging all of the uneconomical lightbulbs in a residence can give you, year after year, greater savings. These kinds of savings will be an irresistible attraction for budget-conscious renters.

In addition to the energy savings, opting for halogen incandescent, compact fluorescent lamp (CFL), or light-emitting diode (LED) lightbulbs entails that you will spend less time needing to replace them. Some energy-efficient bulbs can last for numerous years compared to traditional incandescent lightbulbs that often wear out quickly.

Any of these lightbulb options can work for indoor use, but outdoor light fixtures can benefit the most from a CFL or LED spotlight bulb. Developed to cope with the weather and to last for many years, a CFL or LED spotlight can deliver long-lasting safety and illumination in an energy-efficient way.

Bringing old fixtures up to date by turning them into smart light fixtures can improve energy efficiency even more. In order to reduce the amount of energy used and ensure that lights are only on when needed, install fixtures with integrated timers, photocells, and dimmers. Some fixtures can sense light levels and turn on at dusk whereas other fixtures can be programmed to turn on and off automatically. By only turning the lights on when required, the amount of energy utilized each month can be reduced significantly.

These kinds of light fixtures give quality lighting options for a portion of the cost when they are utilized in combination with energy-efficient bulbs. When you exchange your old fixtures to energy efficient light fixtures, you allow your tenants more authority over their utility bills and save yourself a lot of money and time.
