5 Reasons to Make the Switch to LED Lighting

With Energy providers continuing to increase their prices, one of the ways you can proactively maximise your savings is by switching your old Halogen Downlights to energy efficient LED Downlights. Lighting takes between 10 to 20% of the average Australian household electricity spend, if you do make the switch from old technology to new lighting solutions you can expect to see significant cost savings - plus a range of other important benefits.

1. LESS ENERGY USAGE REDUCES YOUR POWER COSTS - Halogens use about 50W of power. The new energy efficient LED Downlights use only 10W or less. This will save you around $40 per year for each light fixture, based on an average of 30 light fixtures. Our average households save over $1000 per year on your lighting bill.

2 OLD HALOGEN LIGHTS ARE A FIRE HAZARD - Halogen lights operate at up to 370C, which is a lot of heat. Over the past five years there have been a significant number of fires in Australia related to halogen Downlights. LEDs are recommended by the QLD fire Department as they omit low heat making them the safe option for your family and your home.

3. MORE COLOUR & TEMPERATURE OPTIONS - LED Downlights are available in a wide range of colours, fixture settings and temperatures, giving you many choices to express your personal style. You will have countless options to add lighting depth, style and set different lighting moods in your unique spaces.

4. BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT - Less energy being used by lighting means reduced CO2 emissions, which is much better for the environment. You will also be taking up less landfill due to the superior lifespan of the LED Downlights. Your LED Downlights will likely last till you move out of the house!

5. SUPERIOR TECHNOLOGY WITH EXTENDED WARRANTY - Our LED fixtures offer superior technology, the new polycarbonate material used to house the LEDs have been designed for Australian standards to not rust or discolour due to the salty air. This is one of the many reasons, as Sunshine Coast tradies, J & P Electrical love working with this high quality product. Each fixture has a 4 Year warranty.
