Thrive Through Load Shedding - Litehouse

As winter approaches, the reality of load shedding  looms over many South Africans. With power outages becoming a common occurrence, it's crucial to be prepared and find ways to thrive even in the darkest hours. In this blog post, we'll explore how Litehouse lighting solutions can help you navigate through load shedding, ensuring your home remains bright and welcoming throughout the winter season.

  1. Be prepared! 

Keep an eye on Eskom's schedule and follow them on social media for updates. Print the schedule and display it on your fridge to keep the whole family informed and for smartphone users, download the EskomSe... app. This clever app alerts you about schedule changes and adds a touch of humor. Created in 2014 by two friends, it has grown to over 400,000 users and is South Africa's most downloaded iOS app!

  1. Choose Reliable Lighting:

Invest in high-quality lighting fixtures and bulbs from Litehouse that provide consistent illumination even during load shedding. Opt for energy-efficient LED bulbs and fixtures that offer longer-lasting performance, reducing the impact of power outages on your daily life.

  1. Embrace Battery-Powered Lighting:

Discover Litehouse's range of battery-powered lighting options, such as rechargeable LED night lamps and portable lanterns. These versatile and mobile lighting solutions will keep your surroundings well-lit, even when the grid goes dark.

  1. Harness Solar Power:

Consider Litehouse's solar-powered lighting solutions to harness the abundant South African sunshine. Solar-powered outdoor lights and garden lamps not only provide sustainable illumination but also help save on electricity costs.

  1. Make Use of Emergency Lighting:

Explore Litehouse's emergency lighting options, including battery-backed LED fixtures. These lights ensure  that you have reliable illumination in critical areas such as staircases, hallways, and entryway in order to avoid any unwanted accidents. 

  1. Create Ambiance with Candles:

When load shedding strikes, set a cozy and intimate atmosphere using Litehouse's elegant candlelight options. Choose from a variety of decor to create a warm and inviting ambiance in your home.

  1. Install Automatic Lighting Controls:

Consider smart lighting solutions that come with automatic controls. These systems can be programmed to turn on specific lights during load shedding, providing an added layer of convenience and security.

With Litehouse lighting solutions by your side, you can not only survive but thrive during load shedding this winter.
