    The kit contains a number of simple, easy-to-install energy saving products including:

    * Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs). CFLs use up to 75% less energy than regular light bulbs. They can also last up to 10 years.
    * Weatherstripping to put around your windows and doors and help keep out drafts. (You can find videos on draft proofing on our tips page.)
    * Fridge and freezer thermometers to help you set your refrigerator and freezer at an ideal temperature where your food stays cold, but you're not wasting any extra energy.
    * A low-flow showerhead that uses significantly less water than a standard showerhead.

    The manual of the contents and instructions for the energy saving kit is here in PDF format: http://www.bchydro.com/etc/medialib/internet/documents/power_smart/Energy_Saving_Kit_Manual.Par.0001.File.energy_saving_kit_manual.pdf
