LED Downlights Installation

LEDs are quickly becoming the most popular type of light source because of the huge amount of benefits that they come with. If you are thinking about upgrading your lights, or are just looking for a better alternative to traditional lights, then you should definitely take a look at what LEDs can do for you.

The first reason why LEDs are so popular is because of the long life that they have compared to traditional lights. LEDs have been proven to be viable for at least 35,000 hours whereas fluorescent bulbs are usually viable for 10,000 hours and incandescent bulbs fail after only a couple of thousand hours. That makes LEDs a better investment than other light sources which also explains why they come with a higher price tag than others. So if you do go for LED downlights installation then you’re looking at about 40,000 hours of use before they start to lose effectiveness. Even after that, they will continue to work for a little while because LEDs don’t fail abruptly. They just keep getting dimmer so even if they fail a little you will still be able to make sure of them pretty easily.

LEDs are also being praised because of the effects that they have on the environment. They don’t directly impact the environment but do produce more light with less power than traditional bulbs. That means that when you’re installing LED downlights you can expect a smaller electrical bill than you would with traditional lighting. They are also considered green because of the materials that they house within. Most of the traditional bulbs contain mercury which is harmful to the touch whereas LED lights contain phosphor which is relatively harmless, both for you and the environment.

LED downlights installation is also much easier as compared to other forms of lighting. Recessed lighting has always looked good because of the unique way that it is able to provide light but they are a little difficult to install when using traditional lights. With LEDs, the job becomes a lot easier which means that it can be completed in less time than it would normally take. LEDs also come in a range of shapes and sizes which makes them exceptional at fitting downlights. So it doesn’t matter what downlight design you choose, LEDs can fit them quite nicely.

If you’re looking for an electrician to install downlights then it might be worth it to figure out the color of the LED that you want. LEDs can come in a variety of colors, removing the need for additional filters or tinted glass. That makes them more cost-effective and can give your home a touch of personalized color. Another important thing to note about LEDs is that they are cool to the touch. Typically light equals heat but not in the case of LEDs because almost all of the power is converted into light. That makes LEDs safe to the touch and won’t burn you when touched.

Light Installation - Installation of Ceiling Lights and Other Light Fixtures Electrician Mornington Peninsula

The light installation is one of the most basic services that an electrician can offer but the way that they complete those services is what sets them apart. The first thing that you should know about this service that I offer is that it includes both indoor and outdoor lighting. Indoor lighting is not a big deal for most electricians as there is a limited area in which lights and light fixtures can be installed. The problem that most electricians face is with outdoor lights. Outdoor lights can be placed anywhere and have to have a dedicated power line to them if they aren’t attached to the building. That involves more work as well as a bit of creative engineering to make sure that all the necessary building and safety codes are followed. That is why this service is one that I have so much pride in providing. It is one that actually requires a little bit of thinking effort which can prove to be a lot of fun.

The current lighting solutions that I provide include:

  • Ceiling Lights
  • Indoor and Outdoor Light Switches
  • LED Downlights
  • Emergency Lighting
  • Lighting Consultations
  • And Many More

The service that most people ask for from an electrician is for installing new light fixtures in ceilings. In recent years ceiling lights have become the norm because of a few reasons. You should take a look at these before making a decision about which light fixture to opt for because ceiling lights come with a lot of advantages.

The first advantage of ceiling light is the range with which it offers light in a room. A traditional wall lamp is limited in providing light because almost half of the light that they give out is towards the wall. That’s not the case in ceiling lights. Ceiling lights are designed to give off more light as the bulbs point downwards. This allows you to light up more space while using less power.

Ceiling lights are also great if you need a brand new light installation. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes so you can find one pretty easily that matches the decor of your house as well as the ambiance that you want to give off. They can accommodate a variety of bulb types and are especially useful in lighting up important areas such as your doorway or your living room. Ceiling lights give off a completely different feel than wall lights because they look and feel so much better. They are also great at reducing glare because a lot of people have trouble with glare when watching TV or just chatting with a wall light on. With ceiling light, the light is out of the way and diffuses into the room rather than just coming from one source.
