This may not be much of an issue for you to look into now as most businesses, landlords, apartment complexes, and other landowners have done the pleasure of making the changes for you. Every day lawmakers are trying to find ways to make life not only easier for all of us but also safer and more efficient as well.

One of the biggest issues facing our planet right now is the global warming epidemic that is looming larger year by year. We are constantly looking for ways to reduce the effects we have on the atmosphere as well as reuse materials when it's suitable. Energy emissions are one of the largest contributors to this problem, so lawmakers have made changes to reduce the harm.

Many people don't think about how their everyday activities within their homes contribute to the ever-growing problem that is our atmosphere's diminishing state. From using their kitchen appliances, running heat or air conditioning, and even down to the simple things like cutting on the lights.

The largest household contributing factor is the use of light, more importantly, lightbulbs and how the different kinds have different effects. Long story short, incandescent lightbulbs are now illegal in Michigan and every other state in the country, as they are cited to last longer and produce more light volume.

The U.S. Department of Energy has done lots of research and brought forward many proposals about light usage, along with fossil fuels and other gases. Their data shows that LED lightbulbs provide 75% more light for 25% longer than an incandescent lightbulb. You may want to check your light fixtures and make sure you have LED lightbulbs, but you should be fine.
