Energy saving bulbs

From weekly recycling collections to electric and hybrid cars, the world is becoming more environmentally conscious. This initiative can involve things as large as national wind turbines to things as small as domestic, energy saving light bulbs. Although many people shy away from energy saving light bulbs, due to misinformation, we are here to inform you fully on the importance of them.


The main initiative for choosing energy saving light bulbs over regular light bulbs is the environmental impact. Energy saving light bulbs use, on average, 80% less electricity than standard light bulbs. In this sense, standard light bulbs are bad news for our environment and our planet’s dwindling resources. Plus, while energy saving light bulbs require less energy to power, they produce the same amount of light as standard light bulbs of the same watt.

Standard light bulbs also waste 90% of the energy taken through radiated heat, while only 10% of the energy consumed by them is converted into light. In this sense, energy saving light bulbs are less dangerous as they do not get as hot, or make lamps as hot, as standard bulbs; therefore there is far less chance that an energy saving bulb could cause a burn. Although many people complain that energy saving light bulbs take longer to warm up than standard bulbs, this is a small price to pay for the longevity of our resources.


 As well as being much more environmentally friendly, energy saving light bulbs will help to reduce your energy bills. While they are initially more expensive, they should be viewed as an investment. Most energy saving bulbs are guaranteed for ten years, meaning you won’t have to replace them as often as you’d have to replace standard bulbs. Plus, as they use approximately 80% less energy than standard light bulbs you’ll definitely save money on your energy bills. If you invest in an energy saving light bulb for each of your light fittings and lamps, you could save a substantial amount on your utility bills annually.
