One thing I have noticed is that when you buy really powerful light bulbs it makes a room really hot.
It does not matter if it is for a lamp or a light fixture, it just really heats things up in your home! This is not good in the summer time months of the year because it makes you have to run your central heating and air conditioning system on the a/c setting on the thermostat on the wall much higher than usual.
This can make for higher electric bills as well if you are having a hot summer. So in the summer you will want to try to get really low wattage light bulbs for your home’s lamps and light fixtures. I know this may sound like a lot of work to do, but trust me, it is the best thing you can do. Otherwise, if you do not feel like changing light bulbs per season, you can just always go with lower wattage bulbs all year round. Though I have to say in the cold winter months it makes it so that you are running your central heating a lot more and having to turn the thermostat up more as well. Resulting in the same issue as I was just explaining about the air conditioning. It really is a toss up. One of those damned if you do and dammed if you do not type situations. I always change bulbs per season so I can get the very best out of not having to crank my central heating and air conditioning system a whole bunch. Call this an energy saving tip at the very least.
