What can you expect when you replace your halogen lighting with LED lighting?

By exchanging your halogen downlights for new energy efficient LED lighting, Sydney customers can expect to save up to 85% on your lighting bill. Then of course, there’s the impact on the environment, and the fact that you won’t have to bother changing your bulbs for at least the next 12 years.

Whether you’re a homeowner or a business, if you’re looking to upgrade your lighting, we’re the company you can rely on provide the residential and commercial LED lighting Sydney customers need to save money and become more energy efficient.

Why should you change your halogen lighting for LED lighting?

If you’re still not convinced that you should replace your old halogen lighting with new, energy efficient LED bulbs, let’s look at some of the facts:

  • 20 Halogen downlights can cost over $300 a year in electricity charges.
  • 8W LED lighting use 88% less power than a 50W halogen bulb.
  • And yet 8W LED bulbs are just as bright as 50W halogen bulbs
  • Halogen lights may only last for 12 – 15 months, while comparable LED lights can last for up to 12 years, with a 32,000 hour shine time.
  • This longevity of service means not just short term savings, but long-term savings on your annual lighting bill.
  • Halogen lights are a potential fire risk as they can reach a whopping 300oC. In comparison, LED lighting is up to 73% cooler at less than 80oC.
  • Upgrading 20 downlights permanently offsets the emissions from 6 standard cars.
  • Our LEDs are 3000K, warm white in colour to best replicate the colour of most halogen downlights to provide the most appropriate direct replacement.
  • State-of-the-art downlights offer a brighter, cleaner light without the expense of having to replace old worn out transformers, or replace the bulbs every year.
  • Our LED bulbs come with a 2-year warranty.
  • All our LED lighting is installed by A-grade electricians who are fully experienced in carrying out the replacement service; plus they always leave your premises as they found it before they finish the job.
  • Once the work is completed, you’ll receive a Certificate of Electrical Safety, to certify the integrity of the electrical work carried out by us, and to preserve your home insurance cover.
  • Our replacement and LED installation services are available for both businesses and households.
  • Replacements cost from just $15 per light, for a minimum number of 10 lights.

Things to consider

Have you ever replaced your lights

Have you ever replaced your lights?

If you have previously replaced your downlights have you noticed if they have an MR16 or a GU10 base?

Halogen downlights with an MR16 and a GU10 base are shown in the image above. Both of these are eligible subsidies under the VEU and HEER Programs from Victoria and New South Wales.

Do you have a dimmer

Do you have a dimmer?

Above is an example of a downlight dimmer. It’s used for adjusting the brightness of your lights.
If you have a dimmer in place, let our team know before receiving a quote as it may have an impact.

I don’t know what my fittings are. Can I still have an upgrade?

Energy Makeovers are able to provide a fully integrated LED downlight if you wish to remove your 12V transformer or if you have dimmers installed on your existing halogen downlights.

Please note we are only able to upgrade a current system you have in place and do not install downlight lighting systems in a property where no downlights exist.

Are your lights 12V?

If your downlights are 12V they will usually say on the base of the bulb., You may also have a transformer in place, although it may not be visible.

Do you have other inefficient lights in your home?

The Victorian Energy Saver Incentive program (also known as VEET), can also reduce the cost of replacing other lights in your home.

If you’d like to discuss upgrading CFL lighting or other upgrades on your premises please give us a call at 1300 788 776

Where are you based?

These offers are currently only available to Victorian and Sydney residents.

We may also be able to help you access rebates if you live in a State other than Victoria and NSW.

Check out our Government Incentive page for details.

Are they halogen downlights

Are they halogen downlights?

This subsidised lighting upgrade is only applicable for 12V halogen downlights. If you have already replaced your downlights to energy saving fluorescent or LED lights, we cannot upgrade your downlights under the VEET scheme subsidies.

Above is a typical halogen downlight for you to compare with your lights.

Transformers in the ceiling connected

Do you have 1 or more transformers in the ceiling (connected to your downlights)?

Above is an example of a transformer used for halogen downlights.

You may not be able to see your transformer. An Energy Makeovers Electrician can check for a transformer during an upgrade. All transformers are assessed for eligibility with our LEDs and if they’re deemed incompatible, a standard upgrade to MR16 LEDs may not be available.

Can I have cool white LED downlights in the upgrade?

We don’t currently supply cool white LEDs.

Our LEDs are 3000K and warm white in colour. 3000K warm white best replicates the colour of most halogen downlights and therefore are the best direct replacement for an upgrade. This warm white colour is most typical in homes, as it creates a comfortable, inviting ambience.

If you’d like to know more about the LED lighting colour spectrum and why warm white LEDs work best in the home and work-space have a read of our blog post.
