Low Energy Lighting Blubs

Low energy light bulbs are essentially fluorescent tubes bent into a shape to fit into an ordinary light fitting. They use around a quarter to a fifth of the electricity used by an ordinary light bulb. Although they cost a lot more, this isle-light.jpg outweighed by the fact they last for many years. This means that they save you time and trouble in not having to replace bulbs every few months, as well as reducing your electricity bill.

The best places to put low energy light bulbs are in rooms where the lights are on a lot. The lifespan of the bulbs will be shorter in rooms where you switch the lights on and off a lot, but not enough to worry about. Remember also that there is no simpler way of taking practical action in the home to save energy.
