To LED, or not to LED, that is the question. And the answer is quite simple: yes to installing LED down lights.
LEDs are up to 80% more efficient than traditional halogen down lights, which means significant savings on your electricity account. Now that should make you smile.
The light-emitting diode (LED) is the super hero of light bulbs. Quality LED light bulbs last longer, are tougher, stronger and offer better light quality than the alternatives. Plus you can choose from warm, cool and day light colour options. After all, us modern folk like our options!
They outshine the other lighting options like incandescent bulbs and halogen lights because of the following differences:
The first visible-spectrum LED was invented back in the 1960’s. Since then the technology has rapidly advanced and costs have significantly dropped. This means LEDS are now a viable lighting solution.
Even local councils are switching to energy-efficient LED lights. Our local Council jumped on the LED bandwagon last year upgrading its street lighting network to LED bulbs. Sydney’s the Light Years Ahead project, estimates Sydney councils will save around $21 million over 20 years by certain councils making the switch. For example, Sydney City Council will save about $800,000 a year in electricity and maintenance costs alone.
