According to the Australian Government, lighting accounts for 10% of the average Australian household’s electricity budget. If you’re operating a business, it can consume up to 40% of energy in commercial properties.

It makes (and cents) to invest in lighting upgrades for your home or business to improve your carbon footprint and save money on electricity bills. With over 25 years of experience in electrical work in Sydney, we can help you determine the best lighting for your needs.

What are LEDs?

Light Emitting Diode (LED) bulbs use semiconductors to convert electricity into light. Where once they were an emerging technology, LED lights are now the preferred lighting choice for homes and businesses in Australia for several reasons.  

What are the Benefits of LED Lights?

  • Durability: LEDs last 5 to 10 times longer than incandescent and halogen bulbs. They do not contain a filament or fragile glass components like older bulbs, making them more durable, meaning fewer replacement bulbs are needed.
  • Safety: LED bulbs are generally safer than older lightbulbs as they use a lower voltage. As they consume less power, LED lighting can be used safely on low-voltage systems such as landscape lighting and home security lights.  They also don’t contain toxic materials such as mercury or lead. For consumers, this means you don’t need to dispose of the bulb in a special way at the end of its lifespan.  
  • Instant lighting: Not only is there no warm-up time needed for LED lights, just flick the switch and away you go, but you can turn them on and off quickly without any risk to the bulb’s lifespan. This is a marked improvement from the filament in incandescent bulbs that would wear down over time and break.
  • Colour choice: LEDs are available in different light colours: warm white, natural white and cool white. This allows you to customise the light choice to the room in your home, such as cool lightbulbs for the laundry or bathroom and warm or natural white for the loungeroom or bedrooms.

There’s no better time than today to re-evaluate the lighting in your home or business and consider LED bulbs, the energy-efficient, longer-lasting, safer lighting solution.
