Maria Lacey replied to Jamie Kaye's discussion Flickering LED lights
"I think the tendency is to look at lamps (light bulbs) as though they're the same if they all have the same base, in this instance an A19. Instead, consider them as three different types of technology which each use electricity…"

Maria Lacey replied to Jamie Kaye's discussion Flickering LED lights
"Dennis, do you mind if I print this out and keep it in my "Binder of Good Explanations"? Thank you for providing what would earn my vote for "best answer"!"

Maria Lacey replied to Jamie Kaye's discussion Flickering LED lights
"When we're going from "old" to "new" lighting technology, it's important to make sure all the components--wiring, switch, fixture, lamp (bulb)--are designed for that application. A fixture that came with a CFL…"

Maria Lacey replied to Jamie Kaye's discussion Flickering LED lights
"Tim & Richard, Are the light fixtures in your ceiling fans rated for use with LEDs & CFLs? If not, there could be the problem.    "

Maria Lacey replied to Craig Savage's discussion Leveraging other trades to get EE
"I think it's not a waste of labor, it just represents a new way of looking at the work for some. Look at the potential return on investment over the life of the home in reduced energy use, reduced carbon footprint, and non-energy…"

Maria Lacey replied to Craig Savage's discussion Leveraging other trades to get EE
"On windows, entry doors, exterior walls, and interior walls which house a thermal bypass, what would a person stand to lose by sealing or caulking before doing the trim work?"

Maria Lacey replied to King Rosales's discussion Where did you buy your LED lights?
"In the US, www.dsireusa.org is a good resource on energy efficiency incentives."
May 22, 2014
Maria Lacey replied to King Rosales's discussion Where did you buy your LED lights?
"I purchased my LED lamps 3 years ago, and 46/60/75 watt equivalents were not yet widely available in local retail outlets. I purchased mine at walmart and HomeDepot, because that's where they were in stock and I only wanted…"

Maria Lacey replied to Sean Lintow Sr's discussion Water Saver or Gimmick? in the group Best Practices (Residential)
"Gentlemen (John and Craig), flow restrictor devices--whether they're in the form of a showerhead or an aerator--aren't a "one size fits all" solution. They're components within a system. I find it wise, before changing…"

Maria Lacey replied to Sean Lintow Sr's discussion Water Saver or Gimmick? in the group Best Practices (Residential)
"Looks to me like the Ladybug/Monarch/Roadrunner devices which can be found in the $30 range on ebay or amazon. For me, with regard to what I'd use in my home, it's a gimmick--the water heater is on the other side of the shower…"
