Many countries and cities have pulled out older kinds of light bulbs like incandescent lights from the market, pushing alternatives such as CFLs and LEDs, which are proven to be more energy efficient. Australia is one of the first few countries to push for the ban of incandescent bulbs, with other countries like the United States eventually following suit. The move, however, has not been without any resistance. With the classic light bulb remaining relatively unchanged for the last 100 years, is it really about time for a change? After all, why fixed something not broken? 

We waste a lot with lights You may not notice it, but a significant chunk of your power consumption goes to your lighting. Every day, we turn on our lights to illuminate our homes and we take this for granted because we’ve gotten so accustomed to having a light source that keeps everything well-lit even during the middle of the night. This is one of the main reasons why we waste so much energy since many of us even forget that our light bulbs are left on even when they really don’t need to be. 

Power friendly lights are better investments You probably notice the big difference in prices between older bulbs and new power-efficient bulbs. True, they cost a lot, but they’re actually good investments. Energy friendly bulbs use less energy, so expect to save a lot on your power bill once you start using these. Also, they last eight to ten times longer than regular incandescent bulbs, so they really do give you a run for your money. 

Newer technology Along with the energy saving benefits you get, these new bulbs are also capable of new technology. Imagine being able to control your lights or setting a timer on them through an app on your phone. New lighting systems actually carry these features, and that’s just the start. Who knows what new light bulb developers can create in the near future. For questions and inquiries, feel free to contact our customer support hotline.
