A-rated bulbs are cheapest in the long term
Replace seven incandescent bulbs with A-rated equivalents and save 67 Euros per year.
Halogen bulbs are more efficient than incandescents
Halogen bulbs have the same colour qualities as incandescents, but are more energy efficient.
Conventional bulbs are rated E-F
Conventional bulbs use four times as much power as A-rated energy saving bulbs.
LEDs are energy efficient light sources with a long lifetime
LEDs are small electronic semi-conductor chips which radiate light when current flows through them. They come in both coloured and white versions and typically use 0.1-5 watts.
Lighting control helps provide the light you need
You can save a lot of electricity by managing your lights properly. Lighting control ensures that lights only come on when you need them. This is achieved with the help of motion sensors. Light dimmers can provide the right level of lighting in different situations.
