Lighting is a constant use of energy; we are always using lights somewhere, even if they’re not being used at home, you will be using them at work. It is said that the energy used for electricity and to light up home is bad for the environment because of the carbon dioxide emissions it gives off, therefore causing climate problems. There is solution to helping prevent this… Energy Saving Bulbs!

There is increasing amounts of pressure to use energy saving bulbs but there are also a lot of questions surrounding them, do they actually save you money and energy?
