Using Natural Lighting And Interior
Design to Harness Natural Sunlight:
The cost of lighting a
bedroom can be reduced by making most of the daylight. To do this,
light colored loose weave curtains should be used. Use lighter shades of
colors in the bedroom providing for more natural reflectors in the
room. Keeping curtains and drapes open on windows that face the south
will allow sunlight into the room and heat the room during winter,
reducing on the cost of heating. Arrange furniture in the room to best
utilize the natural sunlight.
In order to ensure your bedroom
is eco friendly, consider flooring made of eco friendly materials such
as bamboo. Opt for furniture that is made of recycled and renewable
Thermostat To An Optimal Temperature:

to go to sleep set the room thermostat to low energy. The ideal
temperature during a summer night is 76 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit while
in winter the thermostat should be set between 55 and 60.
Changing your light bulbs:
of using halogen bulbs for reading lamps, change to CFLs. This will
help reduce the cost of lighting by 70%. These bulbs are also much safer
and cooler. Since these bulbs do not generate intense localized heat,
they do not affect the cooling of a room dramatically. These bulbs also
last 10 times longer than an average bulb. Clean your light bulbs and
fixtures regularly. Regular dusting of a bulb can increase its
efficiency by 100%. Dusting should be done using a feather duster and
not a liquid cleaner.
Closets should be kept closed as far as possible.
Open closets increase the volume of air that needs to be warmed.
vents in the room should be free of any obstruction. Furnace filters
need to be cleaned on a regular basis and replaced if necessary.
