  • Use natural light wherever possible (e.g. open curtains in the morning instead of turning on the light).
  • Halogen downlights are energy inefficient to use. Limit their use or replace them with LED globes. If you can’t replace them with downlights, invest in a few table lamps fitted with LED A bulbs to light your space.\
  • Use efficient lights like LED A globes or Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFL).
  • Turn off lights when you’re not in the room (fluorescents and low energy lights).
  • Ensure that outdoor lights are switched off during the day.
  • Remember light-colored surfaces reflect light and will help illuminate the room.
  • Use appropriate light levels – don’t over light a room.
