LED lights are the latest hype in lighting but are they any good, and will they work in your home?
Not every Melbourne electrical contractor will be able to tell you the history of LED lights, but most will encourage you to use them in your home. Very much the option of the 21st century, LED lights are not only a “good” option, but they are also the best for our homes and offices.
There are three options for lighting, all of which are related directly to the type of light bulb used to illuminate interiors at night.
If you compare the lifespan of 20 and 50-watt halogen lights with 5 and 10 watts LED lights available in Australia, you’ll find that you can save close to $50 per light by using the 5-watt LED lights (vs 20-watt halogen lamps) and more than $70 per if you use the brighter LED bulbs. Change all the bulbs in your home to LED, and you’ll make a killer savings. But that’s not all because it isn’t just lifespan that counts; you will also save money by running LED rather than incandescent. Research shows that you can save close to $14 per 5-watt LED and more than $36 per 10-watt LED in a year.
You will need the correct fittings to accommodate LED lights, but your Melbourne electrical contractor will help. We specialise in this service, and once you have chosen the fittings you want, we will install dimmers and hook up transformers if required.
We advise our clients to call us to assess the household wiring system before shopping for new LED fittings. We will then discuss whether you need LED transformers and assist with selecting switches and dimmers. We also have a 24-hour emergency service if you have unexpected problems.
