Comments Off on VIDEO: Inhabitat Lighting Makeover – Inhabitots Editor Julie Seguss Gets a Money-Saving Light Bulb Overhaul

If you read our en light ening “how to switch to LED bulbs” tutorial , you’ve hopefully already seen how much money and energy you can save by replacing your incandescent bulbs, but we wanted to make it even clearer how easy and effective a home light bulb makeover can be. We headed over to Brooklyn to give a light bulb overhaul to the managing editor of Inhabitots , our very own Julie Seguss ! Julie is going to be a new mom in just a few months, so saving money is of the utmost importance right now, but she still wanted to keep her Park Slope home illuminated with a warm, bright glow. In just a few hours, the Inhabitat lighting makeover crew (aka Inhabitat editors Jill & Yuka ) were able to swap out all of Julie’s electricity-guzzling incandescents and halogens with energy-efficient Philips LEDs , and we think you’ll be impressed with the monthly savings we tallied up for Julie at the end of the day. Check out our video above to see the whole makeover, and find out how much extra cash Julie and her husband will have after the makeover to spend on diapers and baby clothes!

Eco Factor: Eco-friendly lights made from sustainable wood using eco friendly making process. Lampshades are my biggest fascination and when they came wrapped in sustainability, I had every reason to like it even more.
