Rethink Energy: Daylight Saving Time

This regularly-scheduled sponsored column is written by the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy team (AIRE). This county program helps you make smart energy decisions that save you money and leaves a lighter footprint on the environment. 

It’s no secret that fall is starting to surrender itself to winter. Not only are temperatures finally dropping, the sun is setting earlier, and Daylight Saving Time is nearly upon us (reminder – set your clocks back on 11/5). 

As daylight dwindles, we use more lighting in our homes. Switching to energy efficient lighting is all the more important to save money and leave a lighter footprint on the environment.

The AIRE program is taking the guess work out of light bulb shopping by offering an LED Bulb Sampler box. The box can be checkout out, just like a book, with your library card from the Arlington Public Library.

The Bulb Sampler box allows you to sample different bulbs at home without having to buy a variety of bulbs you may not like. The Sampler includes standard bulbs of different brightness levels and colors, recessed fixture bulbs, chandelier bulbs, bathroom vanity bulb, 3-way bulb and an LED nightlight.

Stop by the Arlington Public Library or reserve a box online.

Start saving, today!
