Low energy or energy efficient lighting is about reducing the wattage used in a light fitting while maintaining similar/ higher light output. By using energy saving lighting you can generate huge savings on your electricity bills and contribute towards building a better environment.
LED lights are a low energy lighting alternative. They use only 10-20% of the electricity consumed by a standard incandescent light bulb. This produces significant savings on your utility bills. Furthermore, full fixture LED’s last from 4 to 30 years, as opposed to a standard bulb that lasts about one year. LED full fixtures save you the inconvenience of having to regularly purchase and replace the bulbs at home.
Why is energy efficiency important?
Energy efficiency is playing an increasingly vital role in our lives for three main reasons:
1. The environment
The more energy we use, the more carbon emissions are pumped into the atmosphere and our reserves of natural resources such as oil, coal and gas get depleted. We need to reduce our reliance on these energy sources and one way to do that is to make sure we all use energy as efficiently as possible.
2. The economy
The global economy is based heavily on oil and gas and as these resources deplete their cost will increase, causing financial imbalances around the world and resulting in energy poverty in many areas of society.
3. Your bank balance!
Nobody wants to pay more than they have to for everyday necessities like lighting and hot water, so it makes sense to be energy efficient. That way your energy needs are fulfilled while paying a minimal amount.
Why do we need to be energy efficient?
Energy consumption has grown incredibly fast over the last few decades. We are in danger of using up the planet’s natural resources, of destroying vital habitats and polluting the air we breathe. Energy efficiency is a way of managing and limiting this growth in energy consumption, to save wildlife habitats, safeguard the planet and make sure there is energy left for future generations.
