WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LED FITTINGS?
Put simply LED light fittings are not constructed in the usual way a lamp would be constructed. LED's are an electronic component and the light is produced in a much different way than a standard lamp. The biggest advantage of choosing a LED fitting is the very low running cost. LED fittings are able to produce the same amount of light as a conventional incandescence lamp but at a much higher efficiency this higher efficiency means extra money in your pocket come time to pay the electrical bill. LED fittings use up to 85% less energy than there standard counterparts.

There are often times when homes have very old light fittings that are either not Electrical safe any more or parts just are not feasible to obtain any more. In this case our expert Electricians will be able to suggest to you the best fitting to retrofit the space or upgrade to.

I HAVE OLD DOWNLIGHTS WHAT CAN YOU DO?
A large number downlights that have been fitted over the last 20 years have used a fairly standard cutout size. This means that replacing them with modern LED's is often very easy as we can get them to suit the old cutout size in your ceiling making for a simple upgrade to LED downlights. In the rare case you have an oddball cut out size we are able to install adapter plates to take up the additional space around the old fitting.
I SEEM TO BE ALWAYS CHANGING LAMPS?
There are cretin types of older fittings that just don't work as they used to. This can cause premature failure of lamps costing you money in frequently replacing them. If you get one of our Registered Electricians up upgrade your fittings to LED you can sleep easy knowing that the expected lifespan of even the cheapest LED fittings is over 15,000 Hours! That's 15 times longer than standard incandescence lamps. In reality most manufactures are seeing up to 50,000 Hours and above out of there fittings. That's a lot of light!
