Upgrade to the latest LED Down lights and Save on Energy costs
What are LED Downlights?
LED down lights are a small recessed energy efficient ceiling light that direct light down in the form of a narrow beam. LED downlights contain a microchip to emit the light, a transformer to step down the voltage from 240v to 24/12v, and a 10amp plug-top to insert into a plug-base. LED downlights are a great way to light up mirrors in the bedroom or bathrooms, provide brighter lighting in the kitchen, under cabinetry to light up the bench-top and in the ceiling in any room. It is recommended to install down lights on separate switches. Common places to install downlights include the living room, to illuminate artwork and pictures as a feature, or over an armchair where reading takes place.
What LED Downlights do we use?
We use SAL (Sunny Lighting Australia) LED Down lights – SAL are a well known and trusted Australian brand & are renowned for making high quality brand name Down lights. SAL Down lights are Tricolour, meaning you have the choice of selecting the colour temperature via a switch and includes a 3000k warm white, 4000k day light or 5000k cool white setting, so that they are sure to match any household. SAL warrant their down lights for 5 years in a Residential capacity and to date we have not experienced a single failure, in comparison to the cheaper overseas variants. You can read more on their products by Clicking Here. SAL downlights are also dimmable – we pair SAL downlights with Clipsal Dimmers which are flicker free.
LED Downlight Benefits
LED down lights are more energy efficient than your hot halogen globes. Your LED down lights have a lifespan of 30,000 to 50,000 hours compared to your dangerous halogen downlights of 1000 hours. A staggering 80% energy savings can be made when replacing your halogen downlights to the energy efficient L.E.D downlights.
Save On Maintenance Costs
A common problem with halogen downlights is the constant changing of globes. One of the qualities of the energy efficient downlight is they have a longer life, up to 10 years or more lighting hours. Less continual replacement of halogen globes means two things, lower costs in terms of being charged labour to replace the globe and the cost for replacement parts.
Reduced Fire Risk
The heat produced by the halogen globe can reach up to 200c making it to Hot to touch. When switching a halogen globe on, it instantly produces only 20% of light with the other 80% turning to heat. If anything above the ceiling was to come into contact with the 80% of wasteful heat, especially cabling, could result in a fire. A way of preventing this to happen is to install L.E.D downlights.
L.E.D downlights do not contain any mercury or any other harmful gases and do not emit any damaging UV rays. The compact fluorescent lamp [CFL] contains the deadly gas mercury and when deposited into rubbish waste facilities and not handled with care, this lamp could discharge into the ground causing the mercury to contaminate our waterways, effecting our water supply and horticulture. Installing L.E.D downlights would eliminate this dangerous scenario from happening.
When most people are thinking of changing their globes, cost is the biggest factor in making their decision. Buying one L.E.D globe will last you 10 years compared to buying a dozen that keep burning out over the same period of time. So in the long run spending the bigger money today will have substantial savings in the future and that does not include the running costs of electricity for the halogen globe.
Tips for Buying your Own LED Lighting
Colour Temperature – Selecting the right colour temperature is a personal choice as will help set the ambience of the room. Colour temperature is how the light looks coming from the downlight and is measured in degrees, kelvin. Most L.E.D downlights come in tri-colour and have 3 selector switches to choose from to see what colour suits your needs, warm white, cool white and natural white.
• Warm white – 3000k
• Cool white – 4000k
• Natural white – 5000k
Lumen & Wattage – The higher the lumens the brighter the light while your wattage only measures the amount of energy used to produce the light. A standard 9 watt down-light will produce 7 – 9 hundred lumens depending on the light colour. When replacing halogen or incandescent bulbs to L.E.D always compare the lumens and not the wattage. If replacing a 50 watt halogen globe, an L.E.D downlight of 9 – 12 watts that produces about 800 lumens will be a sufficient amount of illumination to replace that halogen globe.
Beam Angle – A beam angle measures on how your light is distributed and the wider the angle the more spread out the light will be. Incandescent bulbs would usually have a beam angle of 360 degrees with your standard downlight having a narrow beam of near the 40 degree range. Choosing the right beam angle for your room can make a big difference in light distribution but unfortunately this option is often limited to just a few L.E.D downlight brands.
IC & IP Rating – IC and IP rating are two completely different used terms, IP means the protection against solids and liquids and IC meaning insulation contact and whether downlights can come into contact with flammable materials or not. So when a downlight is tagged with an IC rated sticker, yes you can safely allow insulation to come into contact with your downlight. Most downlights have an IP ratting of 44, commonly used in wet areas such as bathrooms and underneath.
Location – LED downlights should be spaced 1.3 square meters apart which will provide high levels of lighting dependant on your ceiling height. Downlights can be positioned to provide light on a specific spot within a room or a number of downlights can be integrated to light up an entire area. Also worth noting, installing downlights to close to a wall will create shadows that can end up making a room look smaller than it already is.
How Do Dimmers work?
A dimmer switch works on the principal of reducing lighting levels to your light fixture. There are two standard types of dimmers on the market today, the leading edge dimmer for switching and reducing lighting on 240 volt supplies and the trailing edge dimmer for reducing lighting levels on electronic circuitry such as L.E.D downlights and any other type of lighting that drops down in voltage.
Always check when buying downlights that your transformer is dimmable, your transformer is an electronic device and has to be designed to work with a dimmer switch. Using a dimmer switch with a non dimmable transformer will cause lighting to flicker and switch off while being dimmed. Sticking with the same brand of dimmer and downlights is a good way of making sure lights don’t flicker and cause problems in the long run.
SAL downlights are also dimmable – we pair SAL downlights with Clipsal Dimmers which are flicker free. Clipsal’s range can be viewed by by Clicking Here
