Use Low Energy Bulbs

Have the same lighting by consuming less energy? It is now possible with low energy bulbs. They are a simple gesture to save energy. This makes it possible to participate in the preservation of the environment, while reducing its electricity bill.

A Low Consumption Light Bulb: Why?

These “fluo compact” bulbs have many advantages:

They consume up to 75% less energy than conventional bulbs;

They last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs;

They fit perfectly on your fixtures (bulbs with bases or bayonets);

With the Grenelle de l’environnement, promotional offers have multiplied. We can now find low energy bulbs at a reduced price. But their purchase price remains higher than that of the classic bulbs (around 10 €);

Compact fluorescent bulbs are a gesture for the environment (waste reduction, energy saving, limiting polluting emissions, etc.).

Use Low-Energy Bulbs

A low-energy bulb can be turned on a limited number of times in addition to the retro lighting decor from Moreover, it takes a few minutes to reach its optimal level of lighting. It is therefore not recommended to use it in places of passage (corridors …).

The ideal is to use it in rooms where you spend a lot of time. Avoid using low-energy bulbs for bedside lamps and desk lamps, because of the electromagnetic waves they diffuse.

If you break a low-energy bulb, be sure to ventilate the room. The presence of mercury (as in conventional light bulbs) can be harmful to health, so it is advisable to leave the room for at least 15 minutes.

There are many formats, suitable for both indoors and outdoors. Ask your dealer for advice.
