LED Lighting Geelong
LED Lighting – good for the environment, great for your electricity bills.
For many, many years we filled our homes and offices with traditional incandescent lighting, ranging in wattage from 25Watt up to 100Watt. Then came the fluorescent tube and compact fluorescent bulb which were considerably more energy efficient than their incandescent equivalent. Somewhere in the middle there we went backwards by an excessive use of power-hungry halogens.
Now we welcome the Light Emitting Diode (LED), a highly efficient, non-toxic lamp that is far superior to any other globe.
Let us look more closely at the benefits of LED lighting:
LED lighting is highly efficient
By changing over your power hungry halogen downlights and incandescent globes to LED lamps, you can reduce your lighting energy usage by up to 80% which will significantly reduce your electricity bills.
LED lighting has a long life span
LED lamps can last up to 50,000 hours. This means that you may never have to replace a LED lamp in your lifetime! Not only does this save you money in the long run, it is also great for the environment as you are reducing waste.
LED lighting is environmentally friendly
LED lamps high efficiency means lower carbon emissions. They can also reduce carbon emissions by reducing air-conditioning usage, as unlike traditional globes, LED lamps do not produce heat. LED lighting is mercury-free (unlike fluorescent globes) and is therefore safer for the environment and safer for you.
City to Surf Solar+ LED Display
There is a large variety of LED downlights available, so to make your decision easier, City to Surf Solar+ have installed six different LED downlights in our Geelong showroom. You can spend time in the room with the display trying out the different lights so you can decide on the best colour, spread and light output for your house. In this environment, you can compare them against each other and also get all of the advice that you need. This is especially important if you are planning on filling your house with LED downlights as they are a big investment and it is important to get it right the first time. You may even end up installing different downlights in different rooms depending on the purpose of the room. Kitchen areas and the study might need a greater light output whereas you might want something softer in the living areas. We also have LED oyster light fittings on display if you prefer an alternative to downlights. We can customise how LEDs might fit into your existing situation or completely design an energy efficient lighting layout for your new premise. It’s more affordable than you might think – we can do the calculations for you so you can see the savings for yourself.
