Rising electricity prices frustrate us all and the pressure is on all householders to manage their bills.

There are a number of ways to reduce energy costs around the home without compromising your lifestyle.

The simplest and cheapest way is to upgrade your whole home to energy efficient LED downlights. You'll save money at the flick of a switch.

If you are still using outdated and inefficient halogen downlights you need to be aware how much extra you are paying.

Halogen downlights use up to 88 per cent more electricity than LED downlights.

Government incentives to switch

The NSW government is offering subsidised replacements for residents to encourage people to change over to LEDs.

It is now rewarding households making the positive change by giving unlimited upgrades for homes that will effectively slash their electricity costs overnight.

If your home has 10 or more halogen downlights you can have them all changed to LED for less than $50.

Andrew McLeod, managing director of Accredited Power Saver, the leading approved company under the scheme, said a fully qualified electrican will visit your home, remove your halogen downlights and install LED downlights, all for a $49 booking fee if you want the standard downlight replacement.

"There are no strings attached," Mr McLeod said. "One of our qualified electricians will provide and install all the new LED downlights. We also remove and responsibly dispose of all your old halogen downlights."

Other options including GU10 LEDs which do not require transformers or premium Luminaires LEDs with a large diffuser and brighter light are also available at heavily subsidised prices.

What you can save

On average, a halogen downlight costs $35.13 per year to run while a LED costs just $4.21, an 88 per cent saving.

Put simply, if you have 25 downlights converted to LED you can potentially save over $773 a year on your electricity bill with this one simple and cheap change.

Adding to their appeal, LED lights have a 16-year lifespan compared to just a few years for halogen, and they emit a warm white light.

To take advantage of this great deal you need to have at least 10 existing halogen downlights to be eligible.
