Energy-efficient bulbs 'are getting better'

Energy-efficient bulbs 'are getting better'
A report in today's Telegraph claimed that new soft-coloured energy-efficient lightbulbs may make homeowners more willing to switch to a low-carbon alternative.

Although some energy-saving bulbs have been criticised for providing florescent-looking "blue" light, new versions in soft colours - such as cream or peach - can make the switch less noticeable, the newspaper claimed.

Photographer Liz Carrington, who recently replaced regular lightbulbs at her Fulham house with energy-efficient ones, said it is impossible to tell the difference, particularly when they are masked with well-chosen lamp shades.

"I've been impressed by my fluorescent bulbs," she said.

Replacing regular lightbulbs with energy-efficient ones can save homeowners money and also help them cut down on their carbon dioxide emissions.

According to research published by the Energy Saving Trust, the average household in the UK can cut their carbon emissions by around 26 kilograms a year by switching one regular lightbulb to a energy saving one, which is also estimated to last around ten times longer.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18468874-ADNFCR
