Firstly What Are LED Downlights?
LED downlights are a modern new downlight that contains light emitting diodes (LED’s) to generate the light. They are fancy pieces of electronic wizardry!
Old traditional incandescent bulbs contain a metal filament that heats up and emits light when electricity is passed through it. Halogen lights are essentially advanced forms of incandescent lights and contain a tungsten filament housed in a halogen gas. Halogen lights run very hot.
Why Should You Upgrade To LED Downlights?
There are three simple reasons
- They use lots less power than other downlights for the same amount of light
- They are available in sealed units which means all that heat from your heat pump or fire doesn’t sneak into the ceiling through the gaps in the downlight
- you can cover them in ceiling insulation quite safely as they are designed for this and they run at much cooler temperatures, which keeps the house much warmer
LED downlights come in a variety of sizes so it’s easy to replace older technology downlights with modern efficient LED ones. Contact us today on 03 371 7434 to find out about replacing your old downlights with new ones.
