7 ways to save $100/year with City Electricians

Halogen downlights consume 50Watts of power for each light, this means for every 20hours of running (approximately 2 days of use) they cost around 20c. This and they let hot air out of your warmed space means that they can lose up to approximately 30c every two days or $4.50 per billing period. City Electricians recommend the removal of the fittings and installation of LED fittings that are covered and abutted to allow insulation to be placed overtop. This alteration has a repayment of less than 1 year. Contact us to arrange a free quote.
