Low Energy Lighting Advice

There 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.

Modern 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.

Low 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.

Lighting 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.
