Save Energy

LEDs are extremely efficient and are capable of outputting 8 times as much light (lumens) per watt than halogen lights and as much as 10 times that of conventional GLS bulbs.

Save Money

You will save money on two fronts:

Electrical Running Costs - Your electrical costs relating to lighting will be cut by up to 90%.

Replacement Costs - Good quality LEDs have lamp-lives of 30,000-100,000 hours which means that if used for 8 hours a day, a good quality LED lamp will last for about 10 years.

This compares with:

  • Fluorescent —10,000 hours
  • Longlife Halogen — 6000 hours
  • Standard Halogen —2000 hours
  • Incandscent <2000 hours

Environmentally Friendly - LED is a greener option

In addition to reducing carbon footprint, LEDs do not contain heavy metals such as Mercury which is essential to the operation of a fluorescent lamp. Mercury is a well documented hazard and is released into the environment if the bulb is broken which can easily occur when discarded at the end of operational life.

Superb Light Quality

The latest high-power LEDs can now offer a quality of light to match that we have become accustomed to with low voltage halogen lamps. The light produced has equivalent (colour temperatures) and (colour rendering) which means that our surroundings can be lit with warm, natural light without resorting to halogen lighting which was the only realistic alternative in the past.

There are 2 main criteria that determines the light quality we perceive from a lamp:

  1. 1. Colour Temperature (CT) is measured in Kelvin and values range from 2200-6500K in lighting applications. Low values are perceived as warmer and higher values appear colder. Incandescent lighting generally outputs light in the region of 2700K, low voltage halogen c. 3000K, fluorescent tubes 3500-5500K etc. LED is available in a number of colour temperatures including 3000K or warm white.
  2. 2. Colour Rendering Index (CRI) is an indication of how well a light source compares technically to an agreed reference standard. The Cree LEDs used in our products achieve ratings very close to the best low voltage halogen.

Safer

LEDs are not 'heat based' unlike halogen and incandescent which means that there is reduced fire-risk if downlights for example come in to contact with insulation in attics. Low voltage halogen downlights generate a lot of heat (they are in effect heaters from which light is a by-product!) and this can present a fire risk if they become covered by disturbed insulation. LEDs operate at a relatively low temperature (they can be comfortably held when on) which reduces the risk of overheating.

Dimmable

LEDs can now be dimmed with conventional dimmers (within certain parameters). Early LEDs were not dimmable and current dimmable CFL bulbs require warm-up periods and dim poorly.

Aesthetics

LED lighting is available in a huge number of shapes and sizes meaning there will be an appropriate fitting or lamp to meet your physical requirements.

Ok, But Fluorescents are cheaper

Compact fluorescent is the most readily available lighting option for energy conscious consumers but there are a number of compelling reasons why LED is the way forward:

  • Good quality LED produces superior light quality more akin to halogen.
  • No heavy metals such as mercury which is contained in fluorescent lamps.
  • Longer lamp life
  • No warm-up period
  • Completely silent
  • Fluorescents work best when they are left on for long periods of time, switching reduces operational life.
  • LED is more efficient than fluorescent.
