1 - Energy saving light bulbs

3 - Dimmable energy saving light bulbs

Most of us know we could do more around our home or business to save energy, but where to start?

Just a few simple electrical changes and you could be saving hundreds of pounds on your electricity bills. Here are six energy saving tips to get you started…

2 - Motion sensors to turn off lights

Changing your traditional light bulbs to energy saving light bulbs can save you up to 80% on your energy consumption. But beware, many of the fluorescent and LED bulbs available are poor quality and may not give you the durable service you need. Going for a trusted quality brand e.g. Philips, GE or Osram can ensure that you get many years of reliable service for your home or business. Lasting up to 25 times longer. This cuts down on time, trouble and cost of buying and changing your bulbs, particularly in harder to reach locations.

Sensors switch lights off automatically when no one is in the room, also when the room is bright enough without the lights needing to be on. Turning lights on automatically when someone enters your room. Lights only remain on when the room is occupied.

Up to 120 hours per year of unnecessary lighting can be avoided, reducing electricity consumption for the lighting by at least 10%. Much higher savings can be made in situations where people’s bad habits result in lights being left on for long periods when no one is in the room.

New motion sensors can often simply replace your existing light switch, making installation quick and easy.

Did you know that you can now get LED and Fluorescent bulbs that are reasonably priced and work with your existing dimmer switches?

All that’s needed can be a simple bulb replacement, retaining your existing dimmer switch. Previous energy saving light bulb designs did not allow dimmers to be used. If you still have old fashioned traditional light bulbs being used with dimmer switches, you could save up to 80% on your energy consumption. Test your existing switch with one new low energy light bulb to ensure it functions correctly, then you can replace all bulbs. Replacement dimmer switches, compatible with new energy saving light bulbs, can also be fitted if necessary.  

4 - Low energy outside flood lighting

Still using the old type halogen outside flood lights? Did you know there are new LED lights that save you up to 80% of your energy costs?

Outdoor lighting plays a crucial role in the security and safety of your home or business. LED outside lights are great for hard-to-reach, frequently used locations. You'll climb your ladder (or pay for maintenance) much less often with new LED outdoor flood lights.

An LED exterior light rated at 30 Watts gives the equivalent of 250 Watts of traditional halogen lighting. The life span of the halogens (and traditional bulbs) is 3000 hours. New generation LED bulbs from Philips, GE or Osram last up to 40,000 hours! Whether you are a home or business owner, the saving on your electricity bill can mount up, £100’s every year for larger factory units.

5 - Install a voltage optimisation device

 Did you know that installing a voltage optimisation device could save you up to 15% on your electricity bills?

A voltage optimisation device will need to be installed by a professional electrician. Well-established, proven technology that managing incoming voltage. Reducing voltages to a level more suitable for your appliances.

The average electricity supply in the UK is around 240 Volts, higher compared to many other countries. Electrical appliances having the CE quality mark must be capable of working between 207-253 Volts.

Simply reducing the incoming mains voltage to around 220 Volts, allows your home or business electrical appliances to operate more efficiently and use less energy. Voltages are managed automatically cutting your electricity bills by up to 15% year on year.

6 - Turn electrical appliances off when not in use

Amazingly you can save up to 15% of the average electricity bill simply by turning off the lights and appliances at your wall socket.

Many of today's electrical appliances, draw a small amount of power even when switched off! The power drain comes from stereos, televisions, clock radios, cell phones, satellite and cable boxes, laptop chargers (and any other chargers), DVRs, computers, printers, kitchen appliances, clocks.

Nearly any appliance that’s plugged into a power supply drains power. Up to 75% of the electricity used by remote controlled devices is wasted while they’re switched off. So to cut your home or business electricity bills and start saving money, remember to turn off, switch off or unplug all your appliances after use.
