Energy Efficient Lighting

We all use lights everyday so it’s important to make sure we have both energy efficient and well optimized lighting in our homes.

Energy efficient lighting can only be achieved by following simple & cost effective strategies, yes they do involve additional disciplines on your behalf, but they will benefit you with lower energy costs & the environment by a reduction in the use of diminishing global resources.

In addition to using task lighting instead of whole house lighting, one very easy and inexpensive way is to invest in Energy Efficient Light Bulbs that will use less energy and save money. The two most common types are:

Compact Fluorescent Lamps or CFL’s
A CFL is a fluorescent light that fits into a regular light socket. If you think of the tubular, flickering ugly lights when you think of fluorescents, you’ll be surprised at the quality and variety of CFL bulbs now available.

LightingDirect.com has all of your green options, including CFLs! Click here!

Light Emitting Diodes or LED’s.
LED’s are probably the longest lasting bulbs you can buy. They are more difficult to find and are still fairly expensive but the prices are coming down.

Advantages of Energy Efficient Bulbs

Longer Lasting

Energy Efficient bulbs last about 10 times longer – that means you save your money AND your time and energy because you don’t have to change light bulbs so often.

More Energy Efficient

Energy Efficient bulbs use about 1/4 the energy of regular lighting, saving you money on your energy bill.

Easy, Do-It-Yourself “Installation”

All you do is change your light bulbs and voila! More Energy Efficient Lighting!

An Inexpensive Investment

Initially, CFL’s and LED’s cost more but when you factor in their long life and Energy Efficiency, they come out far cheaper in the long run. And you will start saving energy and money right away

Perfect for Renters

Your new Energy Efficient bulbs are your investment. Take them with you when you move!

Replace as Few as One Bulb At a Time

If you’re on a tight budget and can only afford one or two new bulbs at a time, that’s fine. You will still be saving energy and money.

Note: To maximize your savings, replace the bulbs you use the most first, such as bathroom and kitchen bulbs.

Safer for Your Home and Family

Because LED’s and CFL’s produce less heat, they feel cool when you touch them. Regular lighting heats up and can pose potential fire hazards. Having your homes checked and evaluated by electricians is also vital, check: www.acesydneyelectricians.com.au/domestic-services for this kind of services.
