Lighting - Energy Saver Focus Part 2


part 2

Last week we looked at how using an energy saving monitor enables you to identify opportunities to save energy and money. This week we reveal the impact that switching from incandescent light bulbs to energy saving lamps can have on your electricity bills.

Great Savings with Green Lighting

Energy saving light bulbs provide the same amount of light as standard incandescent bulbs, but they have a lower wattage rating. This means they are more efficient and better for the environment.

Energy Saving Lighting in All Styles

We have energy saving light bulbs available in all types including BC, SBC, EC, SES, Halogen and Fluorescent. Switching to energy saving lamps will:

Reduce your energy bill: a key benefit of reducing your energy consumption is the impact it can have on your energy bill - the more you install, the more you save.

Use less energy: using a low energy bulb can save up to 80% of the power consumed by a standard bulb.

Help the environment: reducing your overall power usage can have a significantimpact on climate change and your carbon footprint.

Benefit high-use areas: low energy lighting is great for areas lit for extended periods such as landings, hallways, stairs and security lighting.

How much could you save?

This example demonstrates the saving potential of kitting your home out with energy saving bulbs. If a typical household has 10 x 60w bulbs lit for an average of 5 hours a day for 365 days at an energy cost of 7.8p per Kw/hr, this is how standard and low energy bulbs compare:

*Using standard bulbs would cost: £85.41

*Using the energy saving equivalent would cost just £17.08.

That's an incredible saving of £68.33!
