About LEDs

In terms of lighting, LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are one of the more energy efficient lighting systems. The advantages of LEDs are:

Energy Efficiency – Energy saving lighting is about reducing the wattage used in a light fitting while maintaining similar light output. A standard halogen downlight uses 55 watts, but you can purchase LED alternatives from 4.5 to 14 watts

Longevity – LED bulbs last much longer than regular incandescent lights and even up to 10 times longer than compact fluorescents

How many LED downlights do I need for an area?

The number of downlights you need for a certain room or area is dependant on which LED downlight you choose and your personal preference.

Some people like to have controlled beams of light that can highlight areas, others like to have an even constant single level of lighting. For expert advice on your lighting plans, contact Levitt Electrical today.

Can I get dimmable LED lights?

Yes. While in the past, LED downlights weren’t dimmable there are now dimmable LED lights available! Contact your local lighting retail store to find out more.
