Home Energy Saving Measures
As energy prices continue to rise many homeowners are turning to energy efficiency measures to help decrease their energy usage and save money. There are many ways to save energy at home without the help of an electrician but if you are looking for further home energy savings, the following are typical improvements that Ecolux can help with:
- Replacing outdated filament and strip (halogen) lighting with long-lasting LED downlights
- Replacing inefficient heating systems with low input electric radiators
- Replacing old aluminium wiring with copper wiring
- Upgrading old consumer units (fuse boxes)
