Halogen downlights are a feature of many homes. But did you know they can blow out your power bill?
Sharpe Services can stop this by replacing halogens with the LED equivalent.
Lighting costs can account for up to 20 per cent of your winter electricity bill. So switching to LEDs, which use less than 30 percent of the power halogens do, makes sense.
As winter is the time people have lighting on the most, the savings will start as soon as you convert.
With a lifespan of around 15 years, you also will no longer have the expense and inconvenience of having to frequently change blown globes.
For those with a solar-powered home battery storage, having efficient LEDs helps get the most out of the daily reserve of power.
There is another important safety consideration regarding a conversion to LEDs.
Halogen lights can reach temperatures of up to 350°C, and even traditional incandescent bulbs can reach a worrying 250°C.
The high temperatures produced can easily ignite debris or highly flammable insulation in the ceiling. Certain forms of insulation can also move and change shape over time, meaning there can be a potential fire risk lurking in your home.
LEDs operate at much lower temperatures so offer a much safer alternative.
Installation depends on the standard of the original downlight installation but it should be a simple changeover. If you’ve never had downlights Sharpe Services can install a complete new system. As LED globes don’t need transformers, the installation process is less complicated than halogens.
