With energy bills rising BLT Direct urges customers to invest in smart tech to reduce their outgoings

As energy bills continue to soar across the country, one lighting solutions company is suggesting that in order to pinch a few pennies, homeowners need to incorporate smart tech into their homes.

BLT direct is a lighting company that stocks a number of solutions for in and around the home, and they are suggesting that in order to make savings at home, people need to be smarter about their energy usage an in invest in some state of the art smart tech.

Steve Ellwood, Managing Director of BLT Direct said, “As the nights are getting darker and colder, many of us are retreating to the warmth and comfort of our homes at night. While this means we can stay cosy, it also means that we are spending more time with our lighting and heating in use, which often means our energy bills increase at this time year.

This doesn’t need to be the case though, as small adaptations around the home such as energy usage monitors can help people to get a clearer idea about how much energy they are using so that they can make the appropriate changes in order to see savings.”

Energy usage monitors – also known as home energy monitors or electricity monitors, inform users on how much energy they are using in the home in real time and how much you could be saving if you were to change your habits, making them a great way to break expensive habits that people may have developed over the years.

According to the UK government’s Energy Saving Trust, energy monitors could help households save between 3 and 15 percent on annual electricity bills, an average £75.

Another way that homeowners could see significant cuts in their energy bills would be to switch their bulbs from incandescent to the more energy efficient LED option.

LED bulbs are extremely energy efficient and consume up to 90% less power than incandescent bulbs. LEDs use only a fraction of the energy of an incandescent light bulb there is a dramatic decrease in power costs. Users will also save money and energy in maintenance and replacement costs due to the long lifespan of LED bulbs.

BLT Direct stock a number of LED light bulbs that will able to turn any light fitting into a low cost, energy efficient lighting solution.
