What to look for when buying energy saving lightbulbs
When you're shopping for energy saving lightbulbs, look for the Energy Saving Recommended logo. It's the quick and easy way to spot the most energy efficient products on the market.
If a lightbulb carries the logo, it means it's met the strict energy efficiency criteria set by the Energy Saving Trust - and has been independently tested by an independent accredited test house.
As well as energy consumption, criteria for lightbulbs cover how long they should last, quality of light, packaging information and safety. The criteria are reviewed on a regular basis and standards are constantly being raised to make sure that energy saving bulbs keep on improving in terms of efficiency and performance.
So, by buying an Energy Saving Recommended bulb, you can be sure it will not only save energy but also be of the highest quality.
Always look for the Energy Saving Recommended logo
