Most homes could reduce the amount of energy they use for lighting by 50 per cent or more by making smarter lighting choices and moving to more efficient technologies. There are two main types of energy efficient light bulbs available in the UK. They are Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) and Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). The electricity used over the lifetime of a single incandescent bulb costs 5 to 10 times the original purchase price of the bulb itself. Most homes have central ambient lighting in each room and task-specific lighting that can be switched on and off, such as lamps for reading, or additional lighting for cooking and in bathrooms.
