Why upgrade to LED lighting?
LED lighting is the most cost-effective and energy-efficient lighting solution available now, using around 75% less energy compared to halogen bulbs and lasting 5 to 10 times longer on average.
Not only does this mean that by switching to LED lighting you can save yourself significant amounts on your annual energy bill, but it also means less time and money spent changing lightbulbs. When you install LED lights, you can rest assured that they will likely last for many years.
All of this means more money saved and less waste over time. Less energy is wasted lighting your home or office, and fewer materials are wasted when bulbs need to be changed regularly.
By upgrading to LED lighting, you can save yourself money while also enjoying the feeling of knowing that your home or business is lit using the most environmentally friendly bulbs available on the market.

LED Lighting Coopers Plains FAQs
How does LED lighting work?
LEDs are light-emitting diodes—semiconductor devices that emit light in a particular direction. They’re often used in place of conventional incandescent bulbs because they last longer and use less energy.
LEDs have many advantages over traditional bulbs, including higher brightness and lower running costs. They also don’t contain any potentially toxic substances like mercury.
LEDs work by emitting light when an electric current passes through them. When the electrons within the semiconductor are activated, they release energy in the form of photons. These photons are a specific wavelength and colour depending on the material used to make the LED.
This process involves electrons jumping from one side to another across something called a ‘p-n junction’. In other words, the side lacking electrons wants to be full of electrons, so the charged electrons on the other side eagerly move over when power flows through them.
Because LEDs do not require heat to create light, they run much cooler and are more energy-efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs.
Can you use LED bulbs in traditional light fixtures?
Yes, you can definitely use LED bulbs with your traditional light fixtures! This is a great way to upgrade your fixtures, improve your home’s value, and reduce your energy costs. It’s also much better for the environment than using regular incandescent bulbs.
There are a few checks you’ll need to make to ensure your new LED bulb is suitable for an older light fixture. Make sure the bulb’s wattage, base, and shape are all compatible.
One thing that trips a lot of people up is LED wattage. You won’t necessarily need to pick an LED bulb with the same wattage as your previous CFL or incandescent bulb since LED bulbs produce a similar output while using fewer watts.
As a general rule, a 60-watt incandescent bulb has about the same light input as a 10-watt LED bulb. This means your new bulb will use significantly less energy while producing the same amount of light.
As such, when you replace your older bulbs with LED alternatives, make sure to choose a bulb with a lower wattage. You can always check with an experienced electrician if you’re unsure.
How does LED lighting for homes compare to other types of home lighting?
LED lighting offers a huge range of benefits over traditional home lighting, including lower energy consumption and a longer run time—which means you’ll need to worry less about replacing your bulbs.
While some LED lights cost more upfront than traditional bulbs, you’re sure to save money in the long run with reduced running costs and needing to buy replacements less often. As LED lighting becomes more popular, it’s increasingly cheaper, too.
LED lighting is also more versatile than incandescent bulbs. Because LEDs don’t get hot, you can use them in instances where traditional bulbs would be unsafe. For example, many homeowners use LED lights to create funky ‘neon’ still wall lights in their children’s bedrooms, while others use LED strips to add an ambient glow to their gaming setups.
What are some things to consider when installing LED lighting?
The first thing to consider when installing LED lighting is the cost of installation. The cost will depend on what type of lights you’re installing, how many you’re installing, and where you plan to install them.
The next thing you’ll need to consider is the amount of natural light your room receives during daylight hours. If your space is often filled with natural light, you might install fewer LED fixtures or choose lower-wattage bulbs.
Many LED lights also come with extra features that you might enjoy, including smart connectivity (allowing you to control the lights from your phone) and colour-changing modes.
