Energy Efficient Lighting
Category: Energy Efficiency
Did you know only 5% of the electricity used in a traditional incandescent light bulb produces light - the other 95% produces heat. That's an awful lot of wastage!
Energy efficient light bulbs are a much smarter way to light your home- saving you money while being good to the environment.
Energy efficient lighting may cost more upfront initially but the pay-off is huge with the potential future savings an enormous benefit for you and your family. Replacing a 100 Watt incandescent bulb with a 20 Watt compact fluorescent bulb can save you at least $100** over the life of the CFL. Energy efficient light bulbs last much longer so you save on the cost of replacements and they use much less energy, which saves you money on your electricity bill while being good for the planet.
