Lighting is an important feature of every home. The right lights can create mood, ambience and compliment your interior.

With so many types and designs to choose from, it’s easy to get lost.

Here’s why energy efficient and sustainable fittings should be top of your list when making your choice…

1. The technology is pretty impressive

LED globes are compact, have lower heat output, are more energy efficient and last longer than a standard halogen globe.

2. Reduce CO2 Emissions

Changing a single halogen globe for a compact fluorescent globe will keep half a ton of CO2 gasses out of the atmosphere over its lifetime.
