Spend Hours at Your Desk? Energy Efficient Lighting Can Help Cut Down Your Costs of Keeping Your Desk Lamp On
Looking for ways to cut down on your electric bill?
One easy solution is more energy efficient lighting. Old lamps and incandescent bulbs are incredibly inefficient and heat up very hot, very quickly. This eats up electricity when you consider how long you typically keep a lamp on throughout the day. Koncept Technologies has your solution in the AR3200-C-SIL-DSK Z-Bar Slim LED Silver Desk Lamp, Cool White. This sleek and modern desk lamp uses 35 cool white, energy efficient LED bulbs that are also dimmable at the touch of a finger. A touchstrip at the head of this Gen 3 lamp allows the user to power on and off the Z-Bar Slim Desk Lamp and at the same time dim the lighting output to their desired brightness with a slide of the finger. In keeping with the energy efficient theme, the Z-Bar Slim consumes only 8.5 watts. To help put that into perspective, similar CFL lamps consume anywhere from 13 watts of energy and higher while incandescent bulbs are much worse. Along with being extremely energy efficient the Z-Bar Slim LED Desk Lamp was made with the environment in mind. Koncept Technologies has created this eco-friendly LED lamp from 60% recycled materials by weight and its aluminum housing is fully recyclable. Read more
