Low energy lighting
By replacing a traditional,100w incandescent lightbulb with an LED bulb you can save up to £7 per bulb, per year.
Replacing a 50w halogen downlighter with an LED bulb you will save up to £3 per bulb, per year.
You should also remember to turn off lights when you are not in a room which can save the typical household around £15 per year. You can install timers to help with this.
When buying an electrical appliance look at its energy rating label (A+++ is best, though the scale is due to change) and consider the size of the appliance that you require. Don’t leave appliances on standby and use standby savers and timers to help. By not leaving appliances on standby the typical household can save up to £35 per year.
A good place to start with the replacement of electrical appliances is with those that are used the most – typically fridges and freezers which are switched on 24 hours a day.
