Energy Saving

As we rely more and more on appliances and electricity, our energy consumption keeps growing, but with some clever lighting, there are ways to reduce the amount of electricity you use in your home or business.

Lighting:

The old incandescent bulbs that we all used to use are now banned from sale and distribution due to their high energy consumption. Replacing them with pear-shaped energy saving incandescent lights with compact florescent lights (CFL) or even better, with light emitting diodes (LEDs) can reduce energy use by 75% and 90% respectively. So not only do they give better light, They both also last much longer, LED lights last up to 10 times longer than traditional lighting.

Replacing halogen downlights

Halogen down lights are energy hungry and produce much more heat than light.  We can quickly and easily check to see if the existing halogen transformers can be used with newer LED downlight, or replace the entire unit to reduce the heat output and improve the quality of the light in your home.

Removing lights

With our design team, we can help you assess how many lights you actually need in a room. You may be able to reduce the number of lights you have, or use the light more effectively to illuminate specific work areas with table or floor lamps with LED bulbs in them.
