FAQ


What are the benefits of LED technology?
  • Reduced Energy Cost by up to 94% - You may never have to change your lights again 50000 hours lifespan
  • Extremely energy efficient
  • Eco-friendly lighting
  • Significant savings on your electricity bills
  • Much longer life-span than halogen bulbs
  • Low temperature operation
  • Directional light
  • Low profile and compact size
  • Breakage and vibration resistance
  • Life unaffected by having to replace each year
  • Instant switch on with no warm up time
 
What is an LED?
A Light Emitting Diode (LED) is a device consisting of a semiconductor that emits light energy when an electrical current is passed through it. LEDs can be used for a wide range of lighting applications. It is predicted that LED lights are the future for energy-efficient home lighting.
 
How long do LED bulbs last?
Our LED light bulbs have an operational life-cycle up to 50000 hours, this equates to:
5.7 years (24 hours per day)
7.4 years (18 hours per day)
11.4 years (12 hours per day)
17.1 years (8 hours per day)
 
Do LED light bulbs provide high quality lighting?
We only sell quality light bulbs in warm or cool white. Warm white is the closest match to traditional halogen bulbs. You will not be disappointed with the quality of the lighting!
 
Can LED light bulbs be used with dimmers?
Yes. Certain types of LED bulbs are dimmable, For standard household dimmers you need a trailing edge or low voltage LED dimmer switch.
 
What LEDs are equivalent in brightness to traditional halogen bulbs?
The brightness of bulbs are measured in Lumens lm
300lm ~ 45-50W
360lm ~ 50-60W
430lm ~60+W

Colour Rendering
Traditional bulbs have a CRI of 100. A high quality LED will have a CRI of at least 75 or more, which is good enough for normal domestic use.  If you buy bulbs with a low CRI there is a risk that the quality of light in your home will look a bit odd. CRI is one property that can vary greatly between bulbs that look almost identical in every other way. Cheaper bulbs can be cheaper because they have a low CRI. The higher the CRI the higher the production costs. Our bulbs have a high CRI in the range of 80-93.
