  1. Common sense  using energy saving light bulbs

Energy saving light bulbs should not be installed in dimming luminaires where they can  easily be destroyed. Energy saving lamps are not suitable for very hot or humid environments (e.g. bathroom) nor for outdoor use.

There are special light bulbs for dimming, for hot and cold environments and for outdoor use.

 

  1. Switch off the light if leaving for a long time

If you are leaving the room for 10 minutes or longer, please switch off your lamps.

 

  1. Frequent switching does not consume electricity

Switching on and off an energy saving lamp does not consume  electricity . Moreover, most certified energy saving light bulbs have passed a switching test of much more than 10’000 times of switching on and off. Thus, switching has only a very limited impact on the life span of an energy saving light bulbs.
