By creating more energy efficient means of living, we can work to keep the world a better place. There are many ways in which we can work to be more environmentally friendly including recycling and reducing our household waste, reducing pollution by walking and cycling rather than using the car, and by using public transport, and also by using more energy efficient electrical appliances. We all use more electricity than we most likely realise, just by using our everyday facilities such as the dishwasher, hairdryer, washing machine, central heating, and even just by lighting our houses.
The average family household uses 50 kilowatts of electricity a day. There are a number of ways in which you and your family can cut this down including the use of energy efficient lighting. LED lighting is a very energy efficient form of lighting. An LED lightbulb, if left on continuously will last for 11 years! Also, your average light bulb loses a lot of energy through loss of heat, whereas LED lighting only loses 20% of its energy through heat loss.
LED lighting is perfect for both commercial and home use. The small flat shape of the lights themselves means they are very easily fitted into areas which could normally be difficult to get to. LED lights are available in a number of sizes and designs, such as strip lights, overhead t bar lights, corner lights, movable spotlights and many more. Overhead lights are ideal for bathroom use, placed over a mirror, or a cupboard. Strip lights are often fitted under kitchen cupboards, to light up the surface below, and corner lights are often used as cupboard lighting. All these types of lighting are often tricky to reach and therefore a bit of a hassle to change. By installing LED lighting instead of regular lighting, you will very rarely need to change the light fittings.
LED wholesale lighting has also become more popular because it gives a greater intensity of light, which is clear and bright, making it ideal for use in kitchens and bathrooms.
