All of us would like to reduce energy bills but putting that into action is another thing. Taking time out of our busy schedules to tweak existing routines and systems can be hard, what’s more, understanding and then deciding what changes to actually make can be even harder. Being an electrical wholesaler we thought we’d help you in your mission to deduct your monthly bills, offering you some fast solutions which are more than achievable with our current stock.
Before you make any changes you might want to view how much existing energy you are using.

Having an energy monitor in the home can be the antagonist for change, acting as the wake up call you need to reduce energy bills.
The LightwaveRF Energy Monitor is a state-of-the-art model which relies upon a smart phone app to convey it’s readings. Once it’s hooked up to your LightwaveRF Wifi Link, you’ll be able to monitor the exact amount of energy being used.

There was a time where security lighting offered little else but a bulky unattractive unit. Since then designers have clubbed together to focus on aesthetics as well as performance, resulting in a handsome batch of security lights that share the ability to complement the home.

They can aid visibility outside, save energy compared to conventional lighting and act as a deterrent to would-be thieves.
Here at Direct Trade Supplies we stock some of the latest and greatest models to hit the security lighting market.

One of the best ways to add a dramatic focal point in a room is by using pendant lighting. Our Firstlight pendant lights consist of many styles catering for many tastes; some fixtures are pretty, delicate and the epitome of elegance, whereas others are larger, stronger and hang proud as domineering features.
Pendant lights are very much unique compared to other types of lighting, this is because unlike recessed downlights and other conventional fixtures pendants don’t need a constellation of fittings to provide a wealth of light, pendants can go it alone.
What’s more pendant lighting gives great opportunity for designers to flex their creative ideas. Pendants, also known as suspenders or drop lights, are all about showing off the light fixture rather than hiding it away in a wall or ceiling.
Pendants are mainly used for two aesthetic reasons, to either stand out as a show stopping feature or used to help tie in existing interior themes. Pendant lighting also provides practical benefits to the homeowner, these include increasing the size and height of a room as well as distributing light beams lower down, therefore creating brighter results than lighting installed high up in the ceiling.
