LED Lighting Guide



LED lighting
are lights which use light emitting diodes (LED's) which are extremely energy efficient and long lasting.
LED lights
create less heat than traditional lights, which means they last for longer and it means your air conditioner doesn't have to work as hard. LED lights are a relatively new technology and can help you save up to 90% on your lighting cost.

Why is Everyone Talking About LED Lighting?



Lighting contributes about 30% to the average Australian households energy bills, so it makes up an important part of the electricity you are paying for. Most lighting today is inefficient and is costing you money and emitting vast amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere.

In Australia lighting represents about 12% of carbon emissions from househoulds and about 25% from businesses. LED lights are a great energy efficient alternative and they can save you money and help reduce your impact on the environment.

Types Of LED Lights:



LED lighting comes in a variety of types, shapes and sizes to meet your lighting needs. Energy efficient and long lasting, LED lights are a great eco alternative to traditional globes and downlights. For more information please click on the links below:


LED Downlights

LED Lighting is the most efficient lighting to replace halogen downlights. We have Australia's leading range of LED Downlights. LED Downlights last up to 50 times longer than a halogen and use only about 10% of the energy. LED Downlights are suitable to replace most low voltage lighting halogens. more

LED Globes

There are LED replacements for traditional globes including incandescent lighting. You simply replace your old lighting with energy efficient LED globes and save energy and money. We have a range of LED globes to replace incandescent and spot lighting. more

LED Strip Lighting

LED Strip Lighting is a extremely efficient and suitable for almost every room. The LED Strip Lighting is both aesthetic and functional, perfect to create that comfortable atmosphere. You'll save energy and money by installing long life LED strip lighting as it has an extremely low power consumption - less than 18 watt per 6 meter length. more



LED Downlight Replacements for Halogens?



Your average 12v 50w halogen turns 90% of the electricity it uses into heat and only 10% into light. This means that halogen downlights are extremely inefficient. Halogens also use transformers which themselves use between 10w & 15w, so your standard halogen is using about 60 watts. Many people believe that Halogen lights are very energy efficient because they are often referred to as “low voltage lighting”. Although they are low voltage (12V) this doesn’t mean they consume less electricity. The coil inside the globe gets so hot the it glows, and that is what creates the light. You can think of Halogens as little toasters in your roof, burning up energy. Halogens can be a fire hazard because they get so hot, and they will also make your air conditioner work harder (which uses more electricity and costs you more).

We have a range of LED Downlights to replace energy hungry halogens. LED Downlights last between 20 and 50 times longer than traditional halogens (LED's lasting for 50,000 hours would last for an amazing 24 years, if used for 6hrs/day 365 days a year). LED Downlights use only around 10% of the power of halogens and provide up to 85% of the light output.
