||Improving the energy efficiency of lighting is high on the list of 'low hanging fruit'. Swapping from halogens to LEDs can be one of the easiest energy efficient projects with the following benefits:
But there has been a proliferation of LEDs, some of which are not from reputable sources with issues around longevity, so how do you know which ones to buy? Try these guides from the Lighting Council Australia.
- Low energy (save $$ on electricity)
- Long lasting (save $$ on maintenance and replacement)
- Low heat emissions (save $$ on AC)
