M.J.Harris Electrical off many energy efficient lighting systems such as:
Fluorescent Lights – These are ideal for areas where illumination is required for long periods of time, such as the living room and kitchen. They also produce less heat, helping keep your home cooler in summer. There are two main types of fluorescent lamps-compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and tubular lamps (fluorescent tubes).
Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) – Compact fluorescent lamps can now be used in most light fittings, including older style incandescent fittings (screw or bayonet) and will provide you with energy efficient lighting that is also comfortable for your eyes. If you use incandescent lights to illuminate a large room like your lounge, you could reduce your costs by about 80 per cent by converting to CFLs.
Fluorescent Tubes – Tubular lamps, also known as fluorescent tubes, are available in a straight or circular style. They are cheaper to buy than compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), but unlike CFLs require special fittings. Tubes are ideal for kitchens, garages and workshops.
Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) – LED lighting is an energy efficient lighting option for replacing downlights. Their main advantage is their very long life-up to 50 times as long as an incandescent bulb. They can also be manufactured in sheets or strips.
