LED lights could be one technology that helps householders to overcome their concerns relating to the energy efficiency of their lighting systems.
Green Home Design Source, a new blog from Holly Emrick, owner of furniture manufacturer Apropos Design and Roots Cabinetry, lists a number of key elements to remember when assessing environmental issues.
They include the need for a clear definition of what constitutes going 'green' to help guide any decisions made.
Understanding of the design process associated with creating and fitting environmental technologies is suggested, along with avoiding the assumption that eco-conscious equipment must cost a lot of money.
Readers are told that LED lights are one option to help reduce the energy consumption associated with illuminating interiors with daylight-like output but very little heat generated.
Other types of bulb that can use less mains power than traditional incandescent versions include compact fluorescent lamps and halogens, readers are told.
