Energy saving lights are a great way of saving both money and the environment. They can save up to 80 percent of the energy used by regular bulbs and are available in a number of shapes and types. Where you would usually need a 60W bulb, now you can use an energy saving 11 to 14W bulb.
Today, the design of these bulbs has progressed a lot. Now, it’s possible to purchase a whole range of styles for your home, garden, security and entertainment purposes. Shapes for energy saving lights range from stick and candle to flower designs and bulbs come in small and medium screw to bayonet fitting.
Nowadays, you can even get low energy light fittings which only take energy saving lights. They are made with a transformer or ballast which is fitted into the light fitting base. It works by allowing only a little amount of power into the bulb for a millisecond into order for it to light up then reduces the flow of electricity to a very low amount.
