Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are extremely popular in many homes throughout Australia due to energy efficiency and long life expectancy. They produce a strong light with only a small wattage, using almost 85% less power than other kinds of downlights, and almost 50% less power compared to fluorescent lights.
People choose LED Downlights for the following reasons:
- They have an estimated lifespan of 25 years
- At the end of its lifespan it will still emit 70% of its original brightness, instead of dying completely
- They are environmentally friendly, with no hazardous mercury
- They don’t heat up as much as other downlights
- Easy to retrofit
- Come in a range of switchable colour temperatures from warm white to cool white to suit any home or area
- Energy star product
- Halogen downlights are being phased out

LED downlights are a more costly option when compared to other lighting systems on offer, but the reduction in electricity use is substantial. The difference is rapidly paid off in savings, often in as little as a year’s time. Combine that with a much longer life and less drop off in intensity and you are clearly better off with an LED downlight installation.
