The sky, which is not fully illuminated when you wake up in the morning, welcomes you in a blackened way if you are working. None of you may like it, you may even be affected psychologically. But besides the psychological effects, there is another result of seeing plenty of darkness in the winter months and you can see this result concretely at the end of each month. Of course, we are talking about the electricity bill, the amount of which increases due to the need for lighting.
In addition to “Tips for a Warmer House”, we wanted to provide information about lighting savings and make your relationship with the winter warmer. “How to save electricity?” It is possible to avoid spending your budget with a lower invoice by paying attention to some points about the lighting, which is one of the most important parts of the question, as well as protecting the nature.
Choosing the Right Bulb
The first step you need to take for a lower electricity bill is choosing the right bulb. LED bulbs, also known as saving bulbs, are strong enough to fulfill this request. You can save nearly 80% energy by choosing LED bulbs instead of incandescent bulbs, which are called normal bulbs today and have been used abundantly for lighting in recent years. You may think that LED bulb prices are more expensive than incandescent bulbs, but this turns out to be an advantage in the long run. Because while the use of incandescent bulbs is about 1 year, you can use these new generation bulbs economically for up to 10 years.
“Incandescent lamps have a higher Watt value, so the area can be illuminated more.” If you have such an opinion, we should also state that this is wrong. Because these light sources need less energy than incandescent and still have the same effect. That is, an LED bulb can generate the amount of 1600 lumens emitted by a 100W incandescent bulb with an 18-23W LED bulb.
So briefly you can turn to save bulbs to save on lighting.
One Bulb is Enough
Chandeliers are the products that complete the decoration of your home, it is impossible not to like them! But if the subject is electricity-saving, you should be careful while choosing them. Multi-entry chandeliers, which will cause you to use a large number of bulbs, may cause you to not get the efficiency you want about saving. You can solve this issue by choosing a single chandelier or by dividing the lighting switch so that you can turn on the bulbs you want. In the meantime, since choosing light colors in chandeliers and stalactites provides better diffusion of light into the area, you should consider the alternatives produced with thin and light-colored products in the selection. Also, while cleaning, you wipe the chandeliers and bulbs to remove them from dust and provide better light dispersion.
Do Not Keep Light Open Unnecessarily
We are aware that this is something you already know; When the light is on, it consumes energy and causes excess bills. We just want to state how sensitive this issue is. For example, “Anyway, I will enter this room in 2 minutes, I don’t have to turn off the light.” Even when you think, you should not forget that you are consuming electricity. Even 2 minutes is important here. Think like this; leaving the bulb 30 times on for 2 minutes, you consume 1 hour of energy in total. It is useful to be careful since this is done in the winter months.
Lamps with sensors that detect and flash motion are also very useful for low energy consumption. It is not ideal for use in all areas of the house, we are aware of this, but you can use sensor lamps in areas such as balconies, terraces, exterior doors, or in areas such as a vestibule in your workplace.
