Maintaining rental property can be a costly exercise especially if you are footing the utility bills. Encouraging tenants to utilise the energy saving benefits of Energy Saving Light Bulbs is more than prudent.
Did you know that just one low energy bulb could save you up to €10 per year?
In most homes, lighting accounts for around 20% – 25% of the total electricity bill, so you can save a considerable amount of money each year, simply by replacing ordinary bulbs with energy saving light bulbs.
Last 10 times longer
Whilst they are slightly more expensive than traditional bulbs, they do last up to 10 times longer so for every bulb you replace, you could save up to 10 each year or around €70 over the bulb’s lifetime. They also come in a wide range of shapes, sizes and colours so they are pretty stylish too.
Reduce your bills
Energy saving bulbs use 25% less energy than traditional light bulbs but give out the same amount of light, so they can really help to reduce your bills. Just look at how they compare with ordinary bulbs
