Save Green by Going Green; Mr. Electric; R Has Five Ways Going Green Can Save Money.
July 23, 2014
  Waco, Texas (PRWEB) July 23, 2014           During the hot summer months, homeowners are looking to save on the electric bill. By going green, homeowners can reduce pollutants, save money and recycle reusable products and material. Going green can be done by making small adjustments to daily energy consumption. Mr. Electric has five ways to go green and save money.         Use LED light bulbs   Incandescent light bulbs are a part of the past. Consider using LED lights. LED lights are what many people are moving toward. They are steadily replacing the outdated and less energy efficient incandescent light bulbs. LED lights use less energy and last longer than incandescent light bulbs.     Get a programmable thermostat     Make the thermostat work to save money. Programmable thermostats allow homeowners to set the temperature of a house or room to the time of day. Programmable thermostats can keep the temperatures higher during the day when no one is home and start cooling the home before the homeowner arrives. They also reduce home energy use. Programmable thermostats are energy saving tools homeowners should consider installing.           E-waste recycling     Plastics, paper and aluminum are only the basics when it comes to recycling. Recycling e-waste such as old phones, iPods, printers and monitors will keep these used technological devices out of area landfills.         Install smart technology         Smart home technology can turn out the lights when no one is home or someone leaves a room.

New IP Ratings and Flood Light Infographics from LED Waves.
July 23, 2014
  (PRWEB) July 23, 2014             New York-based lighting manufacturer LED Waves has updated their online help section with new articles and graphics. As the company sells both to professional lighting specifiers and directly to end users, their site visitors represent all corners of the residential, commercial, industrial, government, and transportation sectors. These resources are intended to help those with little to no technical knowledge specify the best LED lights for their application.       The most recently updated article, About IP Ratings, explains the international protection code commonly used to classify the weatherproofing or water resistance of lighting equipment. Using IP65 as an example, LED Waves illustrates each level of protection against the ingress of water, dust, and other particles. (IP65 is the rating on the company's Owl Pack™ outdoor LED floods, along with their waterproof strips, street lights, tunnel lights, and several other industrial luminaires currently in development.)       Since LED Waves specializes in LED floods, down lights and other spots, the company has also added a guide to beam spreads. It features infographics showing shoppers how to choose ideal beam angle options according to ceiling height and the quantity and in-between spacing of their fixtures.       As lighting class LEDs are relatively new, and replacement LED bulbs may appear unrecognizable from traditional models, LED Waves prioritizes education to help further the adoption of this energy-saving technology.
