Inhabitat's senior editor Yuka Yoneda talks you through how to lower your energy bill by swapping out your lightbulbs with the next generation of low-energy LED light bulbs.

She also discusses the coming light bulb ban, aka the Federal Energy Savings Act which phases out high-wattage incandescent bulbs.

Dimmers are devices used to vary the brightness of a light. By decreasing or increasing the RMS voltage and, hence, the mean power to the lamp, it is possible to vary the intensity of the light output. Although variable-voltage devices are used for various purposes, the term dimmer is generally reserved for those intended to control light output from resistive incandescent, halogen, and (more recently) compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) and light-emitting diodes (LEDs). More specialized equipment is needed to dim fluorescent, mercury vapor, solid state and other arc lighting. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dimmer)

Inhabitat's editor and ecocrusader Jill Fehrenbacher gives a lighting makeover at the Brooklyn home of Inhabitots' managing editor Julie Seguss, helping her save hundreds of dollars on her energy bill.
