Spring Ahead!

It’s that time of year again. At 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 10th, we set the clocks ahead one hour. The promise of springtime and sunshine is sure to add a burst of positive energy to the air … especially as we shovel out from another snowstorm on March 8th!

Next week is an ideal time to do a little lighting maintenance to make your spring and summer lighter and brighter. Here are five five tips now that spring is around the corner.

  • Change the batteries in your smoke detector.
  • Clean your outdoor lights and change light bulbs. Consider LED as you will save energy and money while helping the planet.
  • Change timers on lights to light later.
  • Use dimmers to save energy.
  • Install landscape lighting before your buds bloom.
