LED downlights offer an efficient and long-lasting lighting option and are a good solution for household and workplace use. While they cost a bit more upfront, over their life the energy savings compensate for it many times over.
If you are trying to find versatile lighting to suit your home or workplace, LED downlights are the way to go.
Take a look at the list of advantages of LED downlights compared to traditional lighting.
LED downlights have a long lifespan
Although they are more expensive to purchase compared to standard bulbs, the significant savings you make on energy and replacement costs make LEDs much more cost-effective in the long term.
LED downlights have outstanding lifespan expectancy with the average bulb emitting light for 50,000 hours, some brands even boast up to 100,000 hours of usage.
If you use your lights for 8 hours each day, LEDs should give you an impressive lifespan of 17 years.
Even if you pay out for a top of the range standard bulb, LEDs still make for a smarter investment, lasting roughly 5 times longer than fluorescent lighting and 30 times longer than incandescent bulbs.
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.
LED lights can seem on the pricier side but their energy efficiency and longevity more than compensate for this.
Compared to energy-hungry incandescent bulbs, LED bulbs are a highly energy-efficient form of lighting and guaranteeing to save money on your electricity bill.
LED downlights are better for the environment
People know that saving resources is a step towards building a better future and LED downlights help to save the environment by using at least 75% less energy than old-school incandescent lights.
LED downlights produce less CO2 emissions simply because they require less energy. They will also reduce your contribution to landfill because you won’t go through as many of them as incandescent bulbs. LED bulbs are 100% recyclable, and one bulb can save the material and production of up to 25 incandescent light bulbs.
As an added bonus, LED downlights do not contain mercury, providing little health risk and allowing for an easier clean up in the event of a breakage.
LED downlights offer flexible design solutions
LED downlights are an easy way to add charm to any room and remain a favourite option of designers due to their broad usability.
Whether it’s a home, a shop or an office, LED downlights are highly versatile and come in numerous styles, so you can find one that appeals to your tastes and accentuates the ambience you desire.
LED lighting can be bought in many colour temperatures that will improve the appearance and purpose of any room, with warm white providing a more comfortable light suitable for homes and cool white being preferable in a workplace for a well-lit and luminous environment.
The flexibility of LED as a light source makes it easy to be customised with advanced lighting controls. A key benefit of LED downlights is the ability to dim or brighten light depending on the occasion, whether you need a strong light source for studying or intimate mood lighting for dinning.
LED bulbs are available in various sizes and shapes to choose from, including standard light bulbs, spotlights and candles.
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.
While still offering a practical solution to light rooms, LED bulbs can last for years, costing you less time and hassle than bulbs that need to be frequently replaced.
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.
So, why go for another lighting solution when you have something that is both cost and energy-efficient? Say goodbye to energy-hungry lights and keep up with the on-going LED downlighting trend by taking a look at our range of LED lights here.
