Most people are now using energy efficient lighting in their homes.

A survey by the Building Research Association has found that 84% of households have at least one energy efficient light bulb.

The association says use of the bulbs has picked up significantly since 2004. The central and lower North Island have been the biggest users.

One hundred and forty households in 13 cities were surveyed.
