This year, Energy Awareness Month is more important than ever. Rising energy prices and environmental issues continue to dominate the headlines as families search for ways to save energy and money. Bellacor, a leading online retailer of lighting and home products, is committed to helping families make energy-efficient choices which will reduce energy bills and protect the environment.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, lighting uses close to 20% of the average American home's electricity. That's why it's important to choose fixtures with an Energy Star rating. Kitchen ceiling fixtures, bathroom vanity lights, outdoor wall sconces, and living room table lamps are the most heavily used lights in a home. Just by replacing these most-used fixtures with Energy Star models, families may see a substantial savings on their electric bills.
According to Chris Fowler, marketing manager at Bellacor, "there's a misperception that energy efficient means unattractive. That's why when people think about buying decorative lighting as opposed to task lighting, they often skip energy considerations. But super-star decorative lighting, like mini-pendants or rope lights, can still be super-efficient."
Bellacor is committed to helping consumers save energy, preserve the environment, save money, and still live in comfort and style. That commitment is reflected in their "Go Green" web pages which give shoppers a quick and easy way to find products to make their homes healthier and more energy efficient, all year long.
