_Energy efficient light bulbs are becoming more popular by the day. In fact there is even a law, the Energy Independence & Security Act of 2007, that will phase out incandescent light bulbs between 2012 and 2014. Many people are beginning to place energy efficient light bulbs in their home as the old ones burn out. Some people are hesitant to do this because they feel that they do not know how to work or install the new light bulbs. When using the energy efficient light bulbs it does not have to be difficult. By following these simple steps you can install and properly use the energy efficient light bulbs.
1. Choose the proper wattage for your light and place the bulb beside the light you choose to replace. Make sure the area in which you place the new bulb is dry.
2. Unscrew the old light bulb carefully. When doing so you want to use dry hands and then place the bulb in a clean dry place.
3. Have the new energy efficient bulb within reaching distance and carefully screw it into the outlet. By screwing in the light bulb you are letting electricity reach the bulb and allowing it to light.
Using the energy efficient light bulbs does not have to be difficult. In reality they are practically no different from using the old fashioned light bulbs. The only difference between the old fashioned light bulbs and the new energy efficient light bulbs are that the new ones save on energy and will save you on your energy bill. Saving energy is extremely important in the 21st century and the new light bulbs are one of the best ways to do so.
