    It really surprised me how big of a difference it makes to use energy efficient light bulbs - they use much less energy, last longer than standard bulbs, and produce up to 90% less heat, which altogether saves money in electricity. ENERGY STAR even has a "light bulb saving calculator" to estimate how much you could save where you plug in what light bulbs you currently use and compare to energy efficient light bulbs - super cool!!  https://www.energystar.gov/products/light_bulbs
