Advances in LED technology have lead to this form of lighting emerging as the leader for residential style lighting, outperforming CFL and halogens in terms of light quality, convenience and longevity.


Electricity savings can be as high as 90% with lifetimes of up to 70,000 hours. Good quality LEDs have enforcable warranties of up to 7 years.

However, not all LED lighting manufacturers are the same.When choosing an LED watch out for:

​*  LEDs that are made to a price not a standard

*  Overseas warranties that cannot be enforced

*  Lamps not complying with Australian Standards

*  Poor light quality and lumen output

produce light.








How to identify existing lights suitable for LED upgrades


First, make a simple list of all your current lighting and prioritise by weekly use and wattage.

Look for halogen downlights, compact fluorescent bulbs, PAR38 security lights, T8 fluoro tubes and old incandescent bulbs.

List the following details:


  • estimated hours used weekly

  • wattage

  • base type e.g. MR16 (12v) or GU10 (240v) halogen, E27(screw) or B22 (bayonet) bulbs.

  • colour temperature, warm white (2700-3000K), cool white (4500K), daylight (6000K)

  • transformer type if 12v, magnetic (heavy) or electronic (light)

  • dimmable?

  • on sensor?

Next, choose LED alternatives to suit your budget and needs.


  • concentrate on replacing existing lights with high usage and wattage

  • if upgrading downlights it may be worthwhile changing the existing transformer to a new 12v electronic transformer or a dedicated LED driver

  • lower cost LEDs may have a shorter lifespan

  • consider reducing lighting levels for bedrooms and areas of low use or with other existing lighting, i.e. do you need a 50w halogen replacement (10w LED) if a 35w (7w LED) would do the job.

  • can you install yourself or do you need a qualified electrician?

  • If in Victoria, can I get a reduced price under the VEEC scheme?

  • Order, install and enjoy the savings

  • if in doubt contact us for help

  • Broad Spectrum: L.E.D’s emit light of any colour without colour filters. This is more efficient with lower overall costs.

  • Cool Lighting: L.E.D’s radiate very little heat and are sensitive to fabrics.

  • Dimming: L.E.D’s can very easily be dimmed.

  • Efficiency: L.E.D’s produce more light per watt than incandescent bulbs.

  • Focus: L.E.D lights can be designed to focus light. Incandescent and fluorescent lights need reflectors and shades to point light in a certain direction.

  • Long Life: L.E.Ds have a relatively long life with up to 100,000 hours of useful hours of light compared to 15,000 hours for fluorescent tubes and 2,000 hours for traditional incandescent bulbs.

  • Non-Toxic: L.E.D lights do not contain heavy metals or gases compared fluorescent bulbs.

  • On/Off Resistant: L.E.D’s do not burn-out with frequent on-off cycling and light up very quickly each time.

  • Shock resistance: L.E.D’s are solid so are difficult to damage with external shock unlike traditional bulbs which are fragile.

  • Size: L.E.D lights can be produced very small making them more versatile than incandescent or fluorescent lights.

  • Slow failure: L.E.D lights dim over time compared to the burn-out of incandescent bulbs.
