Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Below is a list of those questions we are asked most frequently. If you have any questions which are not answered below, please contact us at sales@energybulbs.co.uk

Q: I can't find the bulb I am looking for on your site
Please call or email us as we can source virtually any bulb if it's available in the UK

Q: Do you offer discounts for bulk purchases or regular ordering?
We can negotiate the price for bulk purchases or can negotiate a discount for customers who place regular orders (at least one order per month).

Q:  Energy Saving Bulbs are too long and look ugly?
Some older designs and most of the cheap bulbs offered on the net are. We specialise in providing High Quality Premium Branded bulbs such as Osram, Philips, Sylvania, Bell and Megaman.  These are like for like replacements for traditional light bulbs in terms of height and light output. The only time you should know is when you receive your electricity bill.

Q: I have seen these bulbs for sale at a lower price?
We pride ourselves on being one of the most competitive suppliers in our field, supplying Premium branded products from the Top manufacturers at discounted prices. There are many cheaper Far Eastern products on the market. Through customer feedback we have found these to be of a lower quality, far larger than traditional bulbs and the quoted life expectancy can only be described as hopeful.

Q:  Do they flicker when you turn them on?
Yes, they do, but unlike early energy saver lamps a few years ago, the latest designs generally include rapid start circuitry to make the lamp light in less than 1 second with virtually no flickering

Q: The colour of the light they give is different to the bulbs I am replacing?
Cheap Far Eastern bulbs and older designs tended to give a very orangey or very cold white light. Modern developments in quality bulbs replicate fairly accurately the traditional colour from incandescent bulbs and look natural in your home or office.  Most energy saving lamps now use a "warm white" coating to make the light very similar to a normal incandescent bulb.

Q: What could I save financially?
Use the energy saving calculator on our website to calculate the money you can save per year and over the life of the bulbs against traditional bulbs. You can also enter the amount that you pay for electricity for higher accuracy or use the average national figure. The average savings on replacing a 60W bulb with a low energy variant is £38.76 on electricity on the life of the bulb or £64.00 on a 100W bulb.

Case Study: Eclipse Clothing asked us to replace 72 of there GU10 50W spot bulbs with low energy variants costing them £609.76. This seems like a substantial investment but in the first 12 months of use this will save them £1471.68 on their electricity bill and £2304.00 over the life of the bulbs. Not taking in to account the reduction in heat generated or struggle of replacing bulbs every couple of months.

Q: Can Energy Saving bulbs be used with a dimmer switch?
Until recently the answer to this was no, unless it was via a rotary dimmer switch and was only used on full. Megaman have introduced a brand new fully dimmable range of bulbs.

Q:  What is the equivalent wattage in an energy saving bulb?
It works out at about 20% of a standard wattage i.e.
100W = 20W
60W = 11W
45W = 9W
35W = 7W
20W = 5W
Megaman products tend to give anywhere between 10%-30% more light for the same wattage rather than cheaper bulbs.
Q: Are my card details safe when I place an order online with you?
Yes totally safe. All our checkout pages are secured with industrial standard 128 bit encryption. Look for the Golden Padlock symbol at the bottom of your screen in the checkout and click on it for details.
