On 1 September the EU’s ban on importing and selling halogen bulbs became effective. However, only about a third of us are aware of it, according to a survey by Philips. 
 
The Electrical Contractors Association (ECA) is calling for homeowners and businesses to switch from existing halogen light bulbs to energy efficient LEDs as soon as possible. We could all be cutting our energy bill immediately, rather than waiting for our old halogens to fail. 
Would you like to reduce the heating, lighting and power bills for your business by 10% or more without any additional investment? 
 
If you’re willing to make a small investment, savings of 20% to 50% are possible – equivalent to increasing sales by 5% for many businesses. 
 
That’s why 63% of companies say that they are acting to reduce their energy use. 
We recently installed dimmable LED panels for a hall that puts on regular plays. They needed a nice smooth dimming capability. We were surprised at the very reasonable price of the LEDs and dimmers. 
 
For this installation the circuit has a spring return switch that you push and hold to gently dim up and down. Our pictures show full brightness and dimmed levels.
