Electricity has changed our life in many ways. We can now stay up longer and
devote more time to work, studies or entertainment because we don’t depend on
the daylight anymore. Still, lighting your home needs energy, and you should never
forget about energy-saving measures in your household.
If you want to run an eco-friendly household, an important thing is to invest in the
right light bulbs. Energy-saving light bulbs are more efficient than the old ones.
They have actually been in our shops for a long time, but it has taken people much
time to come round to the idea. Energy-saving light bulbs are slightly more
expensive than ordinary ones but they are certainly not a waste of money.
Such light bulbs use much less electricity thus cutting your electricity bill down.
They also last longer, which means you don’t have to spend money replacing them.
One energy-saving light bulb can substitute six ordinary ones.
