    What is LED lighting?

    LED lights are the latest technology in energy efficient lighting. LED stands for ‘Light Emitting Diode’, a semiconductor device that converts electricity into light.

    LED lights are super energy efficient, using approximately 85% less energy than halogen or incandescent lighting – meaning significant savings on your power bills. LED lights also have a much longer lifespan than other types of lighting – see the table below.

    Lighting technology Estimated lifespan*

    Lighting Technology Estimated Lifespan
    LED(The BEST technology right now!) 30,000-50,000 hours  blulb1
    CFL 8,000-15,000 hours  blulb2
    Halogen 1,000-5,000 hours  blulb3
    Incandescent 1,000 hours  blulb4

     

    Traditional Halogen Lighting / LED Energy Saving Lighting Comparison Table

    Halogen LED Benefit
    Running Cost approx. 40/yr./light** approx.$10/yr./light† up to 75% saving on your lighting bill
    Energy  Efficiency 50W globe 6.5W globe uses   86% less energy
    Lifespan Approx.   1 year^ 13- 18   years^ no   annoying and risky bulb changes
    Light   Quality can   flicker flicker   free, same luminescence better   light quality
    Safety can   heat up to 370 degrees so can cause fire emits   up to 60% less heat Reduces   the risk of fire
    Health/Environment can   contain highly toxic fluorine, mercury, lead and argon NO   harmful UV rays, mercury, lead or argon better   for your family’s health and the environment
    Disposal contains   toxic waste  – Mercury 100%   recyclable better   for the environment
    Council   Requirements does   not assist with council approval earns   energy efficiency points for council approval helps   with council approval and green star ratings
