When it comes to energy-efficient lighting, Eurolux Lighting recommends the following solutions so that they can select the option that works best for them.
LED LED bulbs retail for almost the same price as regular incandescent bulbs but they offer far more benefits. LED bulbs supply more hours of illumination (15 000 to 30 000 to be exact) and use less electricity to provide the same level of illumination. An incandescent bulb uses 42W of electricity to emit the same level of illumination as a 6W LED. This means you’ll spend less time and money replacing bulbs and your electricity bill will be lower thanks to the low wattage power of LEDs. Because LEDs use less energy, they decrease the demand from power plants and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. LED bulbs are also better for the environment as they don’t contain any toxic elements and won’t harm the environment when disposed of in a landfill, so installing them really is a no-brainer for the environmentally-conscious home-owner.
SOLAR LIGHTING Solar lighting makes use of a photovoltaic cell which converts sunlight into electricity. These fixtures are easy to install and move around your garden and are a great way of keeping your outdoor areas illuminated throughout the night without racking up a huge electricity bill. Lutec is a popular choice among our customers as their range offers solar panels in combination with powerful LED modules.
DAY/NIGHT LIGHTS These lights register the brilliance of ambient light and activate when the light reaches a certain level. This means they automatically switch on at dusk and off again at dawn. They’re a practical money-saving option if you want your home to be illuminated at night when you’re not there. Day/night lighting is particularly useful over the festive season when people go away for days but want to create the illusion of activity at home to deter would-be intruders.
MOTION SENSOR LIGHTS These lights only turn on when movement is detected, making them a great option for your garden. They only consume power when activated, meaning that you will save on electricity and reduce your carbon emissions.
Eco-friendly lighting goes beyond just the bulb. Be sure to use environmentall-conscious fixtures when selecting lamps, pendants and any other lighting in your home. Fixtures made from reused, recycled or natural materials are a good choice.
