Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs)
CFLs can typically last up to 10,000 hours, which is up to five times longer than a halogen bulb and consume 80% less energy than a traditional incandescent bulb. They can be used in the same way as halogens and don’t tend to require a different fitting. CFLs are widely available in a variety of temperatures, sizes and colours.
LED (Light Emitting Diode)
LED lights are the most energy-efficient option for homeowners, boasting an average lifespan of 25,000 hours (25 years) and consuming 50-90% less energy than all other types of light bulb.
