Benefits of LED Light Installation in your Melbourne Home

LED Lighting Upgrades provide many benefits to your lifestyle, safety and savings!

Whether you have halogen downlights, incandescent globes or CFL fluorescent lights, modern LED downlights are now far superior in terms of safety, energy efficiency, longevity and reliability.

Superior Light Output

  • LED downlights are the best choice for a brighter home. They have a brighter light output than comparable halogen and fluorescent models. This means that with a properly designed lighting plan by an experienced electrician, you won’t need as many lights to provide the same level of illumination. The brightness of LEDs does not degrade as much over time unlike halogen and fluorescent alternatives.
  • LED lights also come in various colour options to suit your space, so you can choose warm white for your living areas and a cool white option for your bathroom and kitchen.

Energy Efficiency/Electricity Savings

  • LED downlights use up to 5-10 times less electricity than halogen downlights, which could amount to significant savings on your power bill! There are also great energy savings to be made with upgrading your external lights. Some older incandescent spotlights use hundreds of Watts, compared to an LED floodlight that typically only uses 10 - 30W to provide an even brighter light output!
  • While halogen downlights can reach temperatures of up to 370 degrees Celsius, LED downlights do not produce anywhere near as much heat. This makes it easier to cool your house down in summer, and the sealed LED units also mean that heat cannot escape through gaps in the ceiling in winter, when you want it to stay warm!

Longevity

  • The reliability issues that arose with early LED technology are a thing of the past. Modern LED technology is rated to last around 50,000 hours, which will last you more than a decade! This is more than 6 times longer than halogen downlights. There is also the possibility that Australia will follow Europe’s lead by banning halogen downlights, which will make replacements very hard to find.

Safety

  • The high internal temperatures of halogen downlights are a fire hazard when they are installed too close to insulation or timber. It is common for electricians to find charred timbers in the roof space when upgrading the lighting! LED lights operate at much lower temperatures, and most nowadays are safe to install even fully covered by insulation in your roof

Safety Concerns with Halogen Downlights

Halogen downlights were an incredibly popular light fitting throughout the 2000s but there area number of safety concerns relating to this type of light fitting. Common problems with halogen downlights include:

  • Heat stress – halogen downlights can reach internal temperatures of up to 370 degrees, which heats up the light fitting as well as the surrounding space. If the halogen downlights are incorrectly installed too close to insulation or timber in the ceiling, they pose a serious fire risk. In 2006, 36 house fires were caused by halogen downlights. A good indicator of heat stress is the discolouration of the fitting or flaking paint, and it is common for electricians to find charred timbers in the roof space when upgrading the lighting!
  • Old technology – the transformers in halogen downlights are unreliable and can cause lights to turn on and off randomly. They also operate at a high temperature so they waste a lot of energy as heat output, rather than light
  • Poor light output – halogen downlights lose their brightness quickly, with a 1-2 year old halogen downlight being only half as bright as when it was first installed!
  • Shorter lifespan – halogen downlights are rated to last up to 8,000 hours (which isn’t very much when you compare it to the average LED downlight that is rated to last around 50,000 hours, which will last you more than a decade!)
  • Highly inefficient – halogen downlights use up to 10 times more electricity than LED downlights
  • Possible halogen ban - Europe has recently banned halogen downlight replacements, so if Australia follows suit it will be much harder to buy replacement halogen light globes

Adam and Jimmy were such lovely people and were very easy to communicate with. The job got done very efficiently, and they were always considerate of the home and left no mess whatsoever. After the safety check, they completed some additional works on the same day which worked out perfectly! Would 100% recommend!

Jimmy on site and Shannon in the office have been helpful, courteous, professional and efficient. On time, clearly explained the work to be done and then demonstrated when the work had been completed. Accommodating, competitively priced and responsive. If you need an electrician in South East of Melbourne, these folks are the ones.

We engaged Kenner Electrics, Shannon, Tim and the team to help with Electrical Repair Works. Would like to highlight their absolute professionalism, reliability and friendly service. They not only fix the issue, but also take the time to explain the works being completed in simple terms to the customer. When they inform that they'll arrive at a certain time, you can be absolutely guaranteed they will. Providing excellent Customer Service is paramount for them. Therefore, would recommend them for all your electrical maintenance & repairs.

Found this company on Google, not knowing them previously. Easy to call and book. Additionally, they gave a clear estimated of arrival. The electricians also gave us a pre-call so that we knew they were 30 minutes away. We had Electricians Tim and Max, and they were great! Quick to diagnose the problem, and explain it all to me. Additionally, break down the costing, and asked permission to proceed. We now have a working switch and bathroom fan. The overall end to end process was very professional and to a high standard.
