Why Do You Need An Electrician To Install LED Lights?
Whether you’re doing a straight swap of your existing downlights or installing new fixtures, you’ll need the services of a fully qualified and licensed electrician. Like most electrical work, it’s vital for someone experienced and trained to perform any work in your home or business.
Electrical work can be dangerous and improper installation of any lighting – LED or otherwise – can increase the risk of faults or potential fires.
At O’Brien Electrical Castle Hill, we not only install LED lighting safely and to Australian standards, we also recommend the best products available to suit your budget and can help you with your overall lighting design.
LED Smart Lights
As well as standard LED upgrades, there is also the option of installing Smart LED lights. These allow you to control your home lighting from anywhere using your smartphone as well as schedule your lights to turn on or off at specific times.
Smart LED lights are controlled via wifi or bluetooth depending on the system and are increasingly popular as more and more smart home devices become more readily available.
What Are The Benefits Of Upgrading To LED Lighting?
Whether it’s for your home, office or building, making the switch to LED has a huge number of benefits. Not only are they more efficient than incandescent bulbs, but they’re available in a range of colours to help you create the perfect mood for your space. But these aren’t the only benefits.
1. LED Lights Are A Higher Quality Product
Compared to fluorescent lights, LEDs are in general a much higher quality lighting option. LEDs have a much longer lifespan, meaning you’ll save money on constantly switching out worn-out fluorescent bulbs. They also produce better quality light, don’t wear at as fast or flicker, and are highly effective for outdoor and security lighting.
One of the most common questions we get from our residential clients is “do LEDs save money?” The biggest benefit of LED lighting is that it is highly energy efficient. In some cases, upgrading to LEDs can reduce your overall energy costs by up to 85%.
Fluorescent bulbs tend to run hot, spending considerable energy on heating the bulb alone. LED lights run at less than 80 degrees celsius and lose much, much less energy from heat.
When it comes to reducing your carbon footprint, installing new lights can make a significant impact.
Longer Lifespan & Reduced Maintenance Costs
Tired of constantly changing flickering lights or broken bulbs? Unlike fluorescent bulbs which only last around 10,000 hours, LEDs have an exceptional lifespan and can last up to 50,000 to 100,000 hours.
This means less time replacing lights and savings on maintenance costs.
3. Improved Functionality
Another great feature of LED lights is their functionality. They can be designed to generate any colour of light, from warm yellows to vibrant blues. No matter what mood or decor you’re going for, LEDs can be made to compliment your home’s style. They’re also easily dimmed, giving you total control over how bright your rooms are.
LEDs are also directional, which means they’re great for when you only want to light up specific areas.
4. Quick Installation Process
Installing LEDs is a relatively quick process. Once you’ve chosen the fitting, our electricians can make the necessary changes, including installing dimmer switches.

How much does it cost to install LED Ceiling Lights?
The overall cost of LED ceiling light installation will depend on if you’re simply swapping out existing bulbs, the number of fittings you are replacing, ease of access and the state of your home or businesses electrical system.
Can you light a room with LED strips?
In general LED strips alone are not powerful enough to light an entire room. However, they can be used to create a soothing environment when placed around key parts of your bedroom like in your wardrobes or underneath your bed.
How much does it cost to run LED bulbs?
An LED bulb that produces 1100 lumens costs approximately $5 per year to run.
Are there any rebates or discounts for LED lighting upgrades on offer?
The NSW Government has launched a lighting upgrade offer for households. The aim of the discount is to help eligible households in NSW replace old lights with LED upgrades through a subsidy. In particular, the scheme is targeted towards replacing halogen downlights.
