Most of the time, we just keep the lights on until morning comes because many of us aren’t really aware of how we can help conserve power by managing our lights more efficiently. You can make a few simple changes to help save thousands of dollars on your electricity bill.

That said, make it a point to double check rooms and areas in your home for bulbs that you need to turn off before you go to sleep. Bulbs that are left on without actually being used are wasting a lot of energy, and they burn out faster than you’d expect them to.
