These Helix Fluorescent Low Energy Bulbs really make changing to low energy lighting very simple.
The saving for each lamp you change will be typically £ 15.00 per lamp per year, as in normal use they will last over 8 years that is a worthwhile saving. As with all energy saving devices you have to put some capital in first to save later.
What is certain the cost of electricity will continue to increase! The ‘traditional’ low energy colour is warm white (2700k) this is (as the name suggests) a warmer light most like incandescent light. These lamps are now also available in Daylight (6400K) which is a much crisper, white light. Daylight shows colours much more accurately and seems brighter to the eye than warm white.
Should you need a smaller lamp or less wattage have a look at the Mini Helix in this section The 30 watt is a great lamp for snooker and pool tables
