A few reasons to upgrade


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.

Replace Halogen Lighting with LED Lights

You may have heard that it’s possible to get FREE LED light replacements courtesy of the Victorian Government.

Under the Victorian Energy Saver Incentive scheme (also known as VEET), which was originally implemented to improve energy efficiency in homes and businesses across Victoria, it’s possible to upgrade your old halogen lighting to new LED lighting without paying anything for your new bulbs.

Are you eligible for FREE LEDs courtesy of the Victorian Government Energy Saver Incentive scheme?

As with any scheme, certain restrictions apply.

Your quick checklist for eligibility under the VEET scheme

  • The free LED replacement bulbs for halogen lights applies to residents and businesses in Victoria only. Please note that we do charge a $33 installation fee on all exchange installations.
  • The VEU (previously VEET) subsidised upgrade is only applicable for 12V halogen downlights. If you’ve already had work carried out to replace halogen with LED or energy saving fluorescent lights, we’re unable to offer you an upgrade under the scheme.
  • For residential premises, the halogen light LED replacement offer only applies to ceiling downlights under the Victorian Energy Upgraded Program.
  • If you have a transformer in the ceiling that is coupled to your downlights, we will need to assess it for compatibility with our LEDs. If the transformer is incompatible, unfortunately we won’t be able to carry out a subsidised upgrade.
  • Halogen downlights with an MR16 or GU10 base are both eligible for free LED replacement during an upgrade under the scheme.
  • If you have a dimmer switch on your halogen lights, the VEET scheme now covers lighting systems that have GU10 fittings with a dimmer switch attached, therefore you will be eligible for free LED replacements.

Other points to note about our free LED lighting upgrades

If you are eligible for a free LED replacement for halogen bulbs, we will install 3000K warm white LEDs that are very similar to the light emitted by the majority of halogen downlights. These are not only considered the best direct LED replacement for halogen bulb systems, but they’re the most comfortable and typical colour choice for most homes.

Can businesses benefit from the scheme?

Some businesses in Victoria are eligible for a free upgrade of their commercial halogen lighting to energy efficient LEDs. To find out whether your business may qualify, get in touch with us here at Energy Makeovers.
