LED lights are increasing in popularity across Australia and are becoming the new standard in lighting technology. LEDs (light emitting diodes) are energy efficient and powerful, producing impressive brightness from minimal wattage. LEDs use about 75% less energy than halogen light bulbs and last 5 to 10 times longer, meaning there’s savings to be had by fitting new light bulbs. The benefits of upgrading to LED lights include:

  • Estimated lifespan of 25 years
  • Energy Efficient
  • Low running costs
  • 100% recyclable
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Cooler to touch
  • Range of colour temperatures

Metropolitan Electrical Contractors has a team of electricians local to your area who are available around the clock to install your new LED lights. Whether you’re looking to improve brightness or just make the home more energy efficient, our fully qualified tradespeople are available now!

Replacing Halogen Lights

Halogen lights are a common form of lighting that’s found in many Aussie homes. Along with incandescent and fluorescent bulbs (CFL), these lights formed the backbone of interior lighting for many decades. However, LED lights are now becoming the new standard and for a good reason.

According to Sustainability Victoria, LED bulbs use up to 75 per cent less energy than halogen and fluorescent lights and last up to 20 times longer. They are also brighter and have a lifespan of up to 25,000 hours before the bulbs need to be replaced. That’s the equivalent of 15 – 20 years of use.

Halogen lights feature a wire filament that heats until it glows. These bulbs are hot to the touch and can burn. LED lights remain cool to touch at all times, adding an extra element of safety to your household.

Here are the estimated running costs of each globe based on data provided by SA Gov:

  • LED – $4.38 per year
  • CFL – $7.30 per year
  • Halogen – $29.20 per year

The above data is based on a 60w equivalent at a usage rate of 4 hours per day. LEDs do cost more upfront, but the energy saving benefits can be reaped for decades to come.

Modern LED Strip Lighting

LED strip lighting is the latest in minimalist home design. Mounting these efficient strips in a concealed channel or cavity around your benchtops and edges can help bring that desirable, calming mood into your home.

Versatile strip lighting powered by LEDs can be mounted in almost any position, and the potential uses may surprise you. Explore using LED strip lights and consider using them:

  • Under kitchen islands
  • Behind vanity mirrors
  • Behind bed heads
  • In wardrobes
  • Behind frames
  • Staircase bases
  • In cupboards

And more! The possibilities of LED strip lights are endless. LED colours range from demure cool white and warm white to over 15 colour strip options with different illumination modes, including the popular dimmer.

With such a large selection of colours and modes, LED strip lighting allows you to highlight prized possessions or subtly illuminate a room – all while keeping energy bills to a minimum. Opt in for smart LED bulbs, and you can manage it all via smartphone or voice assistant.
An electrician can assist with installation to ensure the maximum impact, leaving you feeling like a star with superb control over your home’s ever changing mood and lighting needs.

FAQs - Your Most Asked Questions on LED Lighting

Looking to install LED lights? Just want to know more? We have all the answers right here.

LED lights, or light emitting diodes, are energy efficient and long lasting. Currently, they are steadily replacing conventional lighting such as halogen bulbs.

That’s because they use 85 per cent less energy and last for over a decade, or 50,000 hours. These days they are bright enough to light sports fields and come in a full range of colour temperatures from warm white to cool white. They come on and turn off instantly and are perfect for smart lighting systems.

Yes and no. Not all LED lights are dimmable due to the low amounts of wattage they consume. Therefore, some dimmers do not work, at least not in the way we’re used to. For example, it may be dimmable but not as much as a halogen or incandescent light. Or, the light may even turn off when dimmed low.

However, there are specific LED lights with dimmer settings. It’s best to have the right system picked out first for installation, rather than hoping it matches what is currently installed.

No. LED lights do not heat up like halogen globes do, and are a very low risk of overheating or causing damage. How does it stay cool? There’s a heat sink at the base of the light which draws the heat to fins that increase the surface area and dissipate the heat. So this means the electronics stay cool and the overall temperature remains low.

A flickering LED could be because of several reasons, including:

  • Dimmer compatibility: If your dimmer function and light are not suited, the bulb can flicker.
  • Loose wiring: The actual wiring or fitting could be the issue, which is why we recommend a qualified electrician installs all lights.
  • Voltage fluctuations: Your home’s wiring may be causing problems as the electrical load fluctuates during peak use times.
