Lighting is responsible for approximately 11% of an average household’s energy usage. To make your lighting more energy efficient:
Replace incandescent bulbs with compact fluros, they use 70% less energy without sacrificing any light, or even better, LED’s! LED technology has really advanced and is now a viable alternative that is over twice as efficient as compact fluros.
Use lighter wall colours to reflect existing light.
Install skylights in dark areas of the home.
Use daylight wherever possible.
Make sure lights are positioned to maximise efficiency
