Go Green with Energy Efficient Lighting!

With Earth Day just a month away, we wanted to focus on energy efficiency. Lighting is a great, easy way to make a big change that is great for the environment and can help save you money on your electric bill. Here are just a few reasons why it is cool to be green.

Environmental Impact - Switching to compact fluorescent lightbulbs (CFLs) is a great way to reduce energy consumption. You can trade a 60 watt incandescent bulb for a 13 watt CFL and save over 75% in energy consumption. In Bermuda, lighting accounts for over 10% of energy consumption in homes and 28% in businesses according to the Bermuda Energy Green Paper, published February 2009. Reduced energy consumption means using fewer natural and imported resources.

Changing Light Bulbs Less Often - Is that bulb out again? If you have incandescent bulbs, they only last for about 750 hours. CFLs last from 5000 to 10,000 hours per bulb. This means you have to purchase fewer bulbs AND change them less often - especially those bulbs way out of reach!

Sleek Style and Great Design in Bermuda

It was great working with Allen on his kitchen renovation. He sent us some pictures of the finished product. The whole space just works - granite, stainless, glass shelving to showcase glassware. We love how it came out. Here is what Allen had to say:
I just thought I'd send you some photos of the finished product. It's always such a pleasure to work with the stellar team at Global Sales, and I have to especially thank the team for their assistance on this kitchen. Every step of the project went smoothly, I'm extremely happy with the results.  I would certainly recommend Global Sales to anyone else who is considering a kitchen renovation.

Thanks again,

Thank you, Allen for sharing these great pictures with us!
