Upgrading the lighting system to use LED bulbs, motion sensors and dimmers to reduce electricity consumption and improve lighting quality can help to improve the EPC rating of a building by using less energy and creating less waste. LED bulbs are more efficient and eco-friendly than traditional halogen bulbs, using up to 90% less energy and lasting up to 25 times longer.
LED bulbs can save up to £35 per year on electricity bills and reduce landfill waste. Motion sensors and dimmers can help to control the lighting level according to the occupancy and activity in each room, avoiding unnecessary lighting and saving energy. Upgrading the lighting system can be easy and cheap, requiring only replacing bulbs or installing switches, but it can also make a big difference to the appearance and atmosphere of the building.
