The benefits of using energy saving light bulbs

“Traditional light bulbs, known as halogen bulbs, work by passing an electric current through a metal filament. When the metal gets hot enough, it produces light. However, a lot of the electricity used to light the bulb is lost as heat.

“Although they cost more to buy initially, energy saving light bulbs can use up to 80 per cent less electricity than a traditional bulb, which could result in savings on your energy bills. Typically, they also last far longer than standard halogen bulbs, so you shouldn't have to replace them as often.”
