In this video, former remodeling contractor David Lupberger reviews a concept called 3 layers of lighting. When upgrading your kitchen lighting, keep in mind that you save money not on fixtures, but on the fixture location. You should aim to incorporate three layers of lighting with recessed cans, under cabinet lighting and pendant or ceiling mounts.
Lauren answers a viewer's question about getting rid of a drop ceiling.
Compact fluorescent lights ( CFLs ) come in a variety of sizes and colors. Learn about different types, where and where not to use them, and how to dispose of them.
Use special motion-activated switches rated for electronic (rather than magnetic) ballasts in most new fluorescent lights . Check the ballast in your light fixture and read the fine print on the switch packaging to make sure you buy the right switch.
Replace the ballast when your fluorescent light flickers or makes an annoying hum. The repair will only take about 10 minutes.
Older photocells in outdoor lights often don’t work with compact fluorescent lights , but new technology is available that addresses the problem. Get compatible photocells for your security lights, so you can save energy on outdoor lighting.
