Household lighting costs are decreasing as light emitting diodes (LEDs) are replacing halogen and incandescent lights. LEDs save money as they use up to 75% less energy and need replacing less often.

When designing your home consider:

  • How to minimise artificial lights during daylight hours;
  • Avoid rooms with a dark interior as this will absorb light and require more artificial light to be provided;
  • General lighting and task lighting for each space;
  • Locating switch so they are easily turned off when leaving the room;
  • A lower wattage light as this will save energy costs compared to dimming;
  • Energy efficient LEDs over lighting types that are be phased out; and
  • Sky lights as these can provide three times as much light into a room compared to a vertical window.
