Finding the Best Lighting for Your Home

The right type of lighting is one of the most important considerations when upgrading or installing new lighting. From energy efficiency concerns, to lighting levels, there are a number of things to take into account. Three types of bulb that are available for home lighting include halogen, CFL and LED.

The cheapest bulb available, halogen lighting provides a warm light similar to the old incandescent bulbs. Typically, these bulbs will last for around 2000 hours, or two years, if used on average 3 hours a day.

Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs)

Lasting five times longer than a halogen bulb, at around 10,000 hours, a CFL bulb will consume less electricity, helping to cut down on energy costs. This type of lighting is available in a range of colours and temperatures to get the best lighting result for your property.


The most energy efficient option available, LED lights have an average lifespan of 25,000 hours, which is around 2 and half years of continuous use! This uses 50-90% less energy than all other types of light bulb, which means you can make big savings on the electric bill. However, these bulbs are typically more expensive to purchase.
