Light Timers to Save Cash and Electricity

Casa Verde: Leave a Light on . . . Sometimes

Whenever I leave town, I like to leave a light on. What I don't like about the antitheft tactic is that I'm wasting my green while not being so green. Since I'm not willing to pay a house sitter to come over and deal with my light issues, I've figured out another way to manage it. An obvious solution, I can't believe it's taken me this long to discover it, which is why I'm making sure you know about it too.

Instead of keeping the flames flickering all vacation long, install one of Intermatic's Indoor Lamp Timers ($9). Just like an alarm clock, they can be set to go on and off at the same time daily. It will keep the burglars away and the light bills low. Everybody wins!

Do you use lamp timers when you head out of town?
