In these rooms, note the types of light bulbs used – traditional or CFL bulbs. CFL bulbs use signifi- cantly less energy, but provide the same amount of light. Most CFLs cannot be used with dimmer switches.
Indicate what types of window coverings are used. Heavier drapes can be used to minimize drafts on windows.
Ceiling fans are an energy-efficient alternative to running the air conditioner. Flooring choices are important because some synthetic material carpets have off-gases that can negatively impact air quality in the home. Hardwood floors are a more eco-friendly option.
