Most homeowners are eager to save money on their electricity and gas bills wherever possible and a simple way that some savings can be made is to look at the type of lighting in the home and whether it is economical in terms of energy efficiency.
The traditional incandescent light bulbs that were a common feature in many homes are expensive to use and do not last very long and so if there are light fittings and lamps in the home which use these bulbs it is a wise move to change the bulbs for energy efficient ones. Although these are more expensive initially there will be a huge saving made over just a few months. LED bulbs are becoming more and more popular as the lighting that they produce can be varied from bright white to warm white effects. They save the homeowner money in two ways firstly by using less electricity to run and secondly because they last longer than a standard bulb.
Further savings can be made by changing light fittings that use three or five bulbs for ones that use a single bulb and wall lights which use two bulbs could also be changed for single bulb varieties.
