Switch off lights to save money.
A survey in the US found that 90% of people forget to turn the lights off when they leave a room? Although it's a no-brainer, turning off lights when you leave a room is a simple but effective way to save energy and reduce your electricity bill.
Make it a habit to turn off lights when you exit a room, whether you are at home or in the office. You could even consider installing motion sensors or timers to automatically turn off lights when no one is in the room.
Take advantage of natural light as much as possible by opening curtains or blinds during the day. When working, use task lighting, such as a desk lamp, instead of turning on overhead lights.
