5 Advantages of LED Downlights

LED downlights offer an efficient and long-lasting lighting option to a lot of general lighting applications. What are some of the advantages of LED downlights? Well, there are quite a few, but here, we focus on our top 5 that will have the most impact in your home and on your back pocket!

LED downlights have a long lifespan

Although they tend to be a little more expensive to purchase compared to traditional downlight options, the significant savings you make on energy and replacement costs make LEDs much more cost-effective in the long term. And, with advances in LED technology, the upfront cost of LED is also coming down.

One of these savings is in replacement cost. LED options have a much greater life expectancy than their more traditional counterparts, with an average lifespan up to 50,000 hours. On average, that is around 5 times longer than their traditional incandescent or halogen counterparts.

LED downlights are energy efficient

Lighting accounts for around 10% of electricity usage in Australian households, with figures rising to as much as 40% in commercial premises. Even with their slightly higher price tag, LED downlights are a highly energy efficient form of lighting. In fact, they can use up to 70% less energy than more traditional forms of lighting.

LED downlights are better for the environment

One of the advantages to being extremely energy efficient is that LED options also have a much smaller environmental footprint.

As well as consuming less energy, with their much longer lifespan, they will also help to reduce your contribution to landfill.

As an added bonus, LED lighting options do not contain mercury like their traditional counterparts do, so are also a more environmentally sound option for your health, as well as allowing for an easier, and risk free, clean up in the event of a breakage.

LED downlights offer flexible design solutions

LED downlights are one of the most common lighting fixtures in modern homes. One of the reasons for this is that they provide a simple, unobtrusive solution to ambient, or general, lighting in your home. They offer a simple, and flexible, lighting solution, and so, remain a favourite option of designers.

They offer choice in terms of colour temperature that will improve the appearance and purpose of any room, and many, offer tri-colour solutions, meaning you can select your colour temperature on installation by simply flicking a switch on the downlight itself. To read a little more about colour temperature, see out blog post Warm White or Cool White – the Differences and Applications Explained.

There are also different styles. You can choose from recessed or surface mounted, for instance, and even whether your downlight is fixed, or tilted as is the case in gimbal downlights. Some LED downlights even offer options for changing your face plate, and using different finishes to either blend into the ceiling, or make a bold statement.

LED downlights come in a variety of styles

LED downlights are low maintenance

Changing bulbs every couple of months used to be the standard. Now, LED lights reduce the time and effort it takes to maintain your lighting. In the case of a work environment, LED lights can be invaluable, saving the need to regularly hire a team of workers to change bulbs in difficult to reach areas.
