Return on Investment

Even if an installation fee applies, the amount you'll save in electricity charges will offset this in as little as 4 months!

Improve the look of your whole home

Old halogen lights burn so hot they can create ugly, yellowing marks around the fitting. We are pleased to offer a premium product that when installed, completely disguises these marks and makes it look like you have a whole new ceiling!

Eliminate hot spots

Halogen lights get oven-hot (300+ C). LED downlights are much cooler (<80 degrees) so your home is safer and more liveable.

Protect against future price hikes

Electricity costs are rising in every state across Australia.Some experts predict the increase will be between 5% and 40% . By decreasing the amount of electricity you are using, you protect yourself from increased electrical costs.

Longer lifespan

LED down lights last up to 10 years, which means you won’t have to bother changing them for a long time.

Risk free

All installations are done by a qualified A Grade electrician, using only best government approved products. We also stand by our service with a 12 month warranty.

You’re #1 Choice for LEF Lighting in Melbourne

Since we set up in business back in 2008, we’ve helped over 250,000 homes and businesses in Victoria to save energy, time and money.

We offer fast and efficient LED downlight installation Melbourne-wide, with many households and businesses qualifying for free or subsidised replacements courtesy of the Victorian Government.

Our mission is to leave our beautiful world a little greener by offering high quality energy saving services, including installing LED lighting Melbourne-wide, and throughout the rest of Australia.

Why should you choose Energy Makeovers to give your lighting a makeover?

When it comes to downlight installation, Melbourne based Energy Makeovers have an excellent pedigree. Our experienced team contains certified A-grade electricians, and is headed up by Directors who have a combined 100 years of experience in the electricity supply and energy industries.

We base our business success on how many tonnes of carbon we can abate, and how many households and businesses we can help, rather than purely on the amount of financial profit we can generate.

Furthermore, when it comes to customer service, we’ve made it our goal to give you a personal service that’s second to none; plus, we always aim to build strong and long lasting relationships that are based on mutual trust. And with 100% commitment to making the world a cleaner place for everyone, we’re the company you can rely on to help save the planet too.

What kind of benefits will you see by replacing halogen lighting with LED lighting?

By replacing your existing halogen downlights with new energy efficient LED downlights, Melbourne customers will benefit from reduced energy usage which translates to a reduction in lighting costs. You’ll also be doing your bit for the environment by reducing your carbon footprint; plus, you’ll have a set of long-lasting bulbs that won’t need changing for years, and years, and years.

Take a look at some of the benefits you’ll gain by choosing Energy Makeovers to install your LED lighting:

  • A saving of up to $300 per year in electricity charges by replacing just 20 50W halogen bulbs for 20 8W LED bulbs
  • An 88% reduction in power usage
  • The same level of brightness
  • Rather than having to change your halogen bulbs every 12-15 months, LED bulbs can last up to 12 years
  • As halogen lights can reach 300oC they pose a potential fire risk; LED lighting reaches temperatures of less than 80oC, making them 73% cooler than the halogen versions
  • By installing just 20 LED downlights, you’ll offset the equivalent emissions from 6 cars
  • A 2-year warranty on all our LED bulbs
  • Installation carried out by A-grade electricians
  • Certificated of Electrical Safety issued following completion of the work

Our replacement and LED installation services are available for both businesses and households, so whether you’re a Melbourne resident or you own or run a business in Melbourne, Energy Makeovers can help your lighting to be more energy efficient, more green, and we’ll save you money at the same time.

Could your home benefit from the Victorian Energy Upgrades Program?

Launched in 2008, the then VEET scheme (Victorian Energy Efficiency Target) was designed to improve energy efficiency in homes and businesses across Victoria. Now known as the Victorian Energy Upgrades Program, the aim is still the same – to decrease Victoria’s carbon footprint and increase carbon abatement.

To achieve their aims, they offered business and home subsidies on efficiencies such as lighting upgrades. Energy Makeovers launched the VEET scheme in conjunction with the Victorian Government, we were one of the first partners to gain accreditation, and have created more Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates than any other company. So far, we’ve created 3,708,729 certificates, which means we have abated over 3.7 million tonnes of greenhouse gases.

To find out whether you’re eligible to exchange your halogen downlights for brand new energy efficient LED downlights under the VEU Program (VEET scheme), you can check your eligibility here.

Please note that our LED lighting upgrade under the scheme is only available on ceiling downlights, and while the LEDs are totally free of charge, we do charge $33 for installation.

Find out whether your business is eligible for a free commercial lighting upgrade in Melbourne

Did you know that some Victorian businesses, including shops, offices, healthcare facilities, schools, warehouses, factories and underground car parks, are eligible for a free upgrade of their commercial halogen lighting to energy efficient LEDs?

If you think your business may qualify, get in touch with us here at Energy Makeovers. We install and upgrade commercial LED lighting Melbourne-wide, to the same high standard as our residential LED upgrades.

How LED Lighting Helps Melbourne Businesses in the Long Run

There are plenty of small things that happen in an office or workplace throughout the day that we selectively ignore, but what we don’t realise is just how big an impact they can have on our productivity and sense of contentment. Any business that is considering making the change to LED lighting in Melbourne likely wants to do this because of the incredible cost-saving benefits and the chance to reduce the overall carbon footprint created by their endeavour.

However, those that speak with their employees to determine how they could make a few small changes that would make a big difference will gain an insight into how the systems in place can negatively affect their daily work. If you have fluorescent lighting then the chances are that your workers have to endure the flicker effect that comes from these bulbs through the day. While it’s a minor complaint, it is one that can lead to worker fatigue and dissatisfaction with their environment.

Furthermore, the reliance on air conditioning certainly comes from our often extremely hot climate but the need to run it as regularly may also be impacted by the heat generated from inefficient lighting. Don’t touch a lit halogen lightbulb as you will find that it’s extremely hot, reaching temperatures of 300°c. Most lights use a lot of energy generating heat, which can contribute to the overall room temperature, requiring greater reliance on the air conditioning units. With LEDs, you reduce both the heat factor as well as the costs of running your A/C units and save in a big way.
