Saving energy

Let the sunshine in

Let the sunshine in

Electricity makes life at home much better as we’ll all agree. It’s where you as a family come together. Where you re-charge and can be yourself for a while. We have made the cleanest and most sustainable energy source available to you. The sun. And here is more good news: IKEA Home Solar solution will help you cut on your electricity bills too. After all, sunlight is free.

”IKEA home solar delivers significant positive effects on customers’ daily savings. And helps us
co-create a better future for next generations and our planet.”

Pia Heidenmark-Cook, Chief Sustainability Officer, INGKA Holding B.V. and its controlled entities.


LED

We’ve gone all in with LED

Energy savings, exciting new designs, better light quality, lower environmental impact and a 20-year lifespan; new LED lighting is so much better than old incandescent lighting. So, we’ve switched our entire lighting range to LEDs. This really does mean everything, from bright and accurate kitchen lighting through to warm and cosy bedroom lighting. And don’t worry; we have a LED bulb for all your existing light fittings. Welcome to the new revolution in lighting. Welcome to the brighter world of LED.

RYET - a lot of shine for a little money

Introducing the IKEA RYET LED bulb. Being LED, the bulb consumes approximately 85% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs and lasts 15 times longer. So you won’t just save on your energy bill and reduce waste, you’ll spend less time changing bulbs too!
 
It was IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad himself who posed the challenge to the product development team to find a way to lower the price of LED bulbs without compromising on quality or how long they last. And the team managed to reach the incredible low price of £0.99
 
 

A brighter life at home with led

Lighting is a vital part of life at home. It makes our homes safer, cosier and more welcoming. And it allows us to do things we couldn’t otherwise do. But around a quarter of the world’s energy consumption is used for lighting. That’s a lot of energy.

At IKEA, we want to help you live a more sustainable life at home. To reduce your energy consumption without making sacrifices. To make living a sustainable life at home easier, beautiful and more affordable. And tiny LEDs are an easy way to make a big difference.

LED lights use 85% less energy and lasts for up to 20 years. Their small size opens up a whole new world of exciting lighting design possibilities. And the light quality is so good you can have both functional and atmospheric lighting in just one light. So not only are LEDs making life at home more sustainable, they’re making it more beautiful too.

Did you know?
LEDs are so tiny they can be built into almost anything, creating loads of new design possibilities.

A cool way to save

Replacing a refrigerator or freezer with a new, energy-efficient model saves money and energy. A new fridge that has been “A++ rated” in Europe can use 40% less energy than a A- or B- class fridge. But you shouldn’t have to pay more to save energy. So we made our entire range of fridges and freezers A+ and A++ rated in Europe, and sell them at low prices so more people can afford them.

Go ahead, watch your water boil

What’s the magic behind induction technology? It’s basically a magnetic field technology that only heats the pan – not the hob or surrounding air – so only a small amount of heat is wasted. Two liters of water can be brought to boil in just five minutes on an induction hob, while it takes as much as 10 minutes on a glass-ceramic hob. You’ll be seeing a lot more induction hobs from us in the future!

Saving energy with textiles

There are lots of simple ways to save energy at home and a couple of them only require a trip to the store. Since many homes lose heat through the floors, area rugs are the unsung heroes of low-cost, quick-fix energy solutions.

You can also save energy and regulate indoor temperatures by using textiles to insulate your window and door openings. Curtains block the hot sun in summer and help keep the heat inside during winter.
