There’s no doubting the fact that household spending on utilities is rising, and this trend shows no sign of reversing. During the autumn months, a number of energy companies increased their tariffs up to 10%.
Like a lot of consumers, you might be looking for ways to bring your spending on electricity down, and one way you can lower your bills is by investing in energy efficient lighting.
Highlighting the importance of efficient residences, property services company LMS recently claimed that homeowners could save a combined sum of around £683 million each year by making some basic improvements to their properties’ energy efficiency.
LMS focussed on cavity wall insulation, double glazing and innovative hot water solutions, but energy saving house lighting can also play a role. The Crompton Energy Saver MR16 Dimmable would be ideal for one or more of your light fittings. This long-life energy saving dichroic reflector lamp runs on a low voltage and offers energy savings of up to 45 per cent compared with standard MR16 lamps.
Another option is the Megaman Low Energy GU10 mains halogen lamp. This gives similar light output to a 35W halogen GU10 but uses only seven watts of electricity and generates dramatically less heat.
We’ve also got a range of LED products. LED COB products are useful for when you want that halogen look. LED have a lamp life of more than 30,000 hour lamp life, which is 30x more than a halogen fitting. They are ecologically friendly, easy to install and maintain.
