How to Rid Yourself of Fear the Next Time Your Power Bill Arrives

Brought to you by Cyber Energy

You know what’s it like, you’re kicking back on the lounge binge watching your favourite Netflix series and you hear that all too familiar ping of a received email.  No, it’s not your Mum sending you another “funny” cat video it’s your power bill!  You don’t even want to open the attachment!  We can’t escape the talk about energy pricing and increasing power bills and now you can’t escape this quarter’s bill!

But one of the easiest ways to kick off your energy savings and avoid a heart attack next quarter is through the humble light bulb.  But which bulb do you choose? Halogen, Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL’s) or LED’s?

The short answer…….. LED’s.  Walk into any modern home and you will see LED downlights.  These energy efficient, long lasting globes (between 15,000 & 50,000 hours!!) activate instantly and don’t contain mercury.

Quality LED’s last 5 to 10 times longer than halogen light bulbs and only use a quarter of the energy to produce the same amount of light and whilst they can be more expensive initially when compared to halogen or CFL, LED’s will see you spending less time at Bunnings replacing globes and will save you more money ongoing in energy costs.

So what do you need to look for when buying LED’s?
