    With the inevitable phase-out and ban of halogen bulbs in the coming years, the following pages provide everything you need to know about alternative lighting that will also save you money. Get in contact for more information on how we can optimise your home energy efficiency.

    Lighting in the home can account for 60% of your energy bill. This is due to the fact that classic lightbulbs, such as incandescents and halogens are hugely inefficient. Modern LED bulbs now offer a range of benefits for a fraction of the energy consumption.
