Energy Light Bulbs

    Recommended Posts

    Long long time ago some nice person put on here about a man who comes round to your house and changes all your lightbulbs to energy one's this is a free service, I was wondering if anyone has his number so I can get them to change the bulbs at our house.

     

    Many thanks

    Hi Julie,

     

    I've still got the no. written down, it's 1800 368476. My mum used the service and was very happy with it.

    The guy from there that came and did ours was a bit stroppy - mainly because they didn't at the time have any energy saving bulbs for dimmer switches, which most of ours are on, and nobody had told us when we phoned up and booked! You need to have a minimum number that need changing, and once the ones on dimmer switches were taken out of the equation, we only had about five to replace - he wasn't happy!

    Probably sounds stupid, but can anyone tell me are ceiling lights (the ones that are flush to the ceiling) energy saving or are there new ones for those. Also, do any of you have any of the candelabra type lights, that require the candle shaped lights, and if so are there any replacement globes that are energy saving for those? Thanks.

    Thanks Diane gone round and counted mine I'm having to replace bulbs as they blow and I have 15 normal light bulbs left I'll tell them on the phone before they come and YES this is a free service apparently.

     

    Thanks again Hedy for the number.

    You sign away your carbon credits, so whichever company is supporting this endeavour, gets to pollute more;) We took advantage of it as well though.

    Wish I had known this earlier as I went to Bunnings 2 weeks ago when we moved into our new house and spent $130 on energy saving bulbs.:realmad::arghh:

    Just did this earlier this week. You can now have a maximum of 8 bulbs and they can replace the shower head to an energy efficient one. Don't know what its like as we are renting so couldn't change it without consent etc
