Topic - Any sparks? Low energy lights help.

andy - on 09 Nov 2012
I think one of the reason my electricity bill is so astronomical is the very large number (c40) low-voltage down lighters, some of which are on almost permanently, in our house (it's a converted bungalow with a central hallway with no windows).

So I want, in the interests of naked self-interest and being greener, to use a low energy equivalent. I can see lots of MR16 LED bulbs, but I'm assuming I can't just plug those into the existing transformers. I know it's going to cost me some money initially, but to be honest I'd rather do a room at a time and get the new ones in - but if I can get away without replacing all the fittings that would be brill.

Are LEDs the answer or is there another option?
