Light your home using 75% less energy.
According to energy.gov.au, lighting accounts for 10% of the average household electricity budget. If you haven't switched to light-emitting diodes (LEDs), you may miss out on some potential savings. LED lights use about 75% less energy than halogen bulbs and last much longer.
When choosing bulbs, match bulb brightness to the task, like dimmer lights for movie nights or higher illumination for reading or cooking. By using bulbs with appropriate brightness for the task, you can expect to save energy. Be sure to look for energy-saving light bulbs that comply with Australian and New Zealand Lighting Standards.
