There are many benefits of LED Lighting and they are by far the best form of lighting on the market. LED Lights are energy efficient, cost effective, durable and have a long lifespan. They are the latest technology in lighting and offer a great alternative in replacing your current halogen or standard lights.
With Crown Electrical Service you are in safe hands as we are a ‘Beacon Lighting Preferred Electrician’. All work is of the highest standard and complies with the law.
A standard 50W halogen lamp turns 90% of electricity used into heat with only 10% into light. The benefit of LED Lights are that they use only 15% of the energy a standard halogen uses, provide up to 85% of the light output and create less heat making them so cool to touch and less of a fire risk.
This makes LED Lights not only energy efficient but extremely cost effective as air conditioning use can be lowered. Some LED Lights can be operated by mains power, but when used with a Low Voltage LED Driver, LED Lights will produce more light output per watt.
LED Lights have the benefit of a super long life span of up to 50,000 hours which means you can cut maintenance costs as the lamps last up to 8-10 times longer than standard halogen lamps making them an ideal replacement.
LED’s have no filaments so can withstand a greater intensity of vibration and shock than standard lights making them durable with less risk of breaking and need to replace. One less thing to worry about.
LED Light bulbs can be as small as 2mm making them ideal for fitting into hard to reach and compact areas.
LED Lights will start at full brightness, instantly, every time, therefore there is no need for backup lighting. LED Lights are a benefit because they switch on and off instantly making them ideal for your home or office, compared to standard compact fluorescent lights which fade in and out or flicker.
Old and poorly installed Halogen down lights are thought to cause at least one house fire a week in WA and are a reason a lot of people are changing to LED type down lights. Most LED lights operate at low voltage so are cool to touch and much safer to handle during installation and maintenance. Also the LED down lights used by Crown electrical service have been Tested and approved to AS/NZS 3000:2007 section 18.104.22.168 which allows contact with combustible materials and abut rafters, making them an even safer option.
The benefit of LED Lights is that they are an eco-friendly form of lighting as they do not contain mercury or other harmful gasses or emit any harmful UV rays. For example, a 13w LED light emits 68% less CO2 than a standard 40w incandescent bulb running 10 hours per day.
