Shocking News: Recessed Lighting is One of the Largest Energy Losing Factors in a Home

Yesterday I was bored, so I rearranged the furniture in my living room by myself. I find it very enjoyable to move furniture, look through Pottery Barn magazines and redecorate. One of the things about moving, redoing, or remodeling a room is that many decisions must be made. A major decision is what kind of lighting. Do you want just lamps, fluorescent lighting, or recessed lighting?

Recessed lights are trendy, and I completely understand the appeal. They do not hurt your eyes as much as fluorescent lighting, but they also do not take up a ton of floor or table space like lamps. The negative thing about recessed lighting is that: they are the most significant energy loser in the home!

Does that surprise you? It surprises me! This could put you in a pickle:  do you get the lights you want and lose energy and money? Or do you save energy but have your eyes constantly sore from fluorescent lighting? Well, the thing is, you do not have to choose! (This is starting to sound like a bad infomercial, huh?) But seriously, you do not have to choose.

FLAME’s technicians will seal your recessed lights by installing insulation “caps.” These will help prevent leakage of air and energy. If you are interested in this procedure, check out this video made by GreenHomes America of Green Homes America, completing a sealing of recessed lights.
