Most of our clients, whether business or homeowners, have heard of Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting, know a little about it but haven’t taken the step to upgrading their spaces. Usually, it’s because they haven’t realised the incredible benefits gained by taking the step - from financial and environmental to pure convenience.
They’re designed for maximum efficiency and longevity, provide brilliant light and reduce your carbon footprint… and that’s just the beginning. We’ve put together a list of reasons you should upgrade your home or business to LED lighting...
Reduce your energy use by 85%
Halogen lights are hot (up to 300+ degrees celsius hot!), while LED downlights run on <80 degrees Celsius. You could be spending up to 95% of your lighting costs on heating a bulb and only 5% lighting it. If this isn’t reason enough, just keep on reading…
LED lights last up to 10 years and require no maintenance. What more do we need to say?! More time between changing light bulbs? No complaints here!
With electricity costs on the rise, LED’s reduce the amount of electricity you are using, therefore you protect yourself from spending more! According to www.energyrating.gov.au, the average household can save $102 by simply replacing 18 halogens with LEDs per year.
No toxic materials
General light bulbs contain pollutant ingredients and are definitely not enviro-friendly. LED’s contain no toxic materials and are 100% recyclable.
They’re durable AND look great!
LED’s are known for their sturdiness and durability, but you can also get creative with their flexibility to be combined into different configurations and shapes to produce whatever lighting effect you want! They offer a high level of control when it comes to colour and distribution, as well as being durable for both indoor and outdoor installation.
Once understanding the benefits of upgrading to LED lighting, the decision becomes pretty simple! You’ll be saving money, helping the environment and reducing your electricity costs - and a qualified electrician can facilitate the upgrade so that everything is up and running before you know it.
