Energy Lighting Advice
are many advantages to installing low energy lighting within
your home or office. Not only does it use less power consumption,
thus helping the environment, but it also saves you money on
your electricity bill. Low energy bulbs, like the ones found
here, are particularly
effective as they last a lot longer than traditional light bulbs.
This means that as well as costing less to run, they also don't
need replacing as often. Another advantage of low energy bulbs
is the lack of heat that they produce. Traditional bulbs are
often hot to touch, but low energy lamps remain cool even after
hours of use.
low energy lighting is now available in many attractive designs
(see some examples here)
Fittings can be installed on ceilings and walls
and even outdoors.
Current UK building regulations also state that a certain amount
of low energy light fittings must be installed within 'new build'
properties (including offices) To learn more about Part L of
the building regulations click here.
energy light fittings also usually have lampholders that include
integrated electronic ballasts. These types of fittings will
only take low energy bulbs, meaning a traditional light bulb
cannot be fitted.
products marked with the blue symbol shown above to the right
have been classified as 'Energy efficient.' This means that
the fitting is recommended by the government.
