Is there a certain kind of light fixture that saves more energy and is more efficient?

Of course the modern 'energy saving' light bulbs really are the most efficient - but they can be absolutely rubbish. If you're faced with a choice between a cheaper and a more expensive 'energy saving' bulb, trust me and go for the more expensive option, otherwise you might regret not being able to see your hand in front of your face!

That's good to know. I always get the cheap option and they never last long. I will opt for the more expensive bulbs next time!

I think a halogen incandescent light bulb is  energy efficient. They have a capsule inside that holds the gas around the filament to increase the bulb efficiency. They are not only widely available but can also be used with dimmers.
