Professional Halogen to LED Downlight Upgrades

inspectionAre you sick of your electricity bill being too expensive?  Then switch to LED downlights!

Not only are LED’s now more affordable than ever, but they look great and can save you up to 85% less energy than normal halogen downlights.

Halogen downlights were great in their day, however, with the vast improvement and uptake of LED technology, it’s difficult to justify regularly maintaining what can only be described as a very inefficient, environmentally unfriendly fire. In fact, it’s cheaper to replace them with quality IC4 rated, maintenance-free LED downlights which provide improved lighting and consume up to 5x less energy.

If you need a downlight upgrade Wollongong or a consultation on energy efficiency, call us now on (02) 4285 6101.

Benefits of a Halogen to LED Downlight Upgrade

Our LED Downlights:

  • Disperse light much more evenly (no more “pooling”)
  • Provide the choice of colour temperature (Warm White, Cool White, Daylight)
  • Pose a much-reduced fire and burns hazard (IC4 rated fittings are safe for installation in insulated roof spaces)
  • Are maintenance-free
  • Come with 3+ years manufacturer’s warranty and ATD Electrical’s lifetime workmanship guarantee

What are the advantages of Halogen to LED Downlight Upgrade?

Light emitting diodes (LEDs) have been turning up all over the place, which leads one to wonder why. What’s so great about these little lights? Why are we seeing more and more LED light bulbs cropping up on everything from cars to traffic lights?

1. LED light bulbs last longer.

Without a filament to break or burn out, LED light bulbs can last for over 100,000 hours without showing their age (that’s over eleven years at full brightness). This lifespan is twice that of typical fluorescent bulbs and twenty times longer than incandescent light bulbs.

2. They are energy efficient.

An incandescent light bulb loses 80 percent of its energy to heat, leaving only the last 20 percent for light. LED light bulbs turn this around, giving up a scant 20 percent of their energy to heat loss. Not only that, but they operate at 10 to 20 percent of the power required for incandescent bulbs of similar brightness.

3. LEDs are more colorful.

LED light bulbs can be made in a vast array of colors without the use of extra filters, which brings down production costs. They also provide a truer, brighter color than a filtered bulb.

4. LED light bulbs work in silence.

The days of humming bulbs came to an end with the creation of LEDs, so there’s no need to lose sanity listening to the thrum, tick, or ping of other light bulbs.

5. They are incredibly safe.

With so little energy lost to heat and so little energy used overall, LED light bulbs to run cool, which means no burnt fingers or burnt-down houses. They are extremely durable thanks to their solid-state construction, so there’s no broken glass to deal with, either.

6. LED light bulbs are focused.

LEDs can be made to focus without the use of extra reflectors or lenses, which means less bulk and lower cost for the same beam of light.

7. They are the best for dimming.

Incandescent bulbs turn yellow when dimmed, while LED light bulbs retain their true colors.

8. LEDs are versatile.

Thanks to the wide array of colors and shapes LEDs be made to replace almost any light bulb. Because of their diminutive size and power-sipping nature, they can be used in different electrical devices from infrared remote control lights to ultra-light headlamps.

9. LED light bulbs bring light quickly.

Lighting up to their full brightness in microseconds, LEDs are a safer choice when reaction time is a factor, like when that car in the fast lane slams on the brakes.

10. They promise a brighter future.

LED light bulbs don’t contain mercury, like compact fluorescent bulbs do. Combining that with the fact that they outlast their energy efficient cousins, makes the choice to go LED clear as day.

LED light bulbs have a staggering number of uses, and somehow they keep excelling at all of them.

How do I know if I need to upgrade my switchboard immediately?

The following are some signs that you may need to upgrade your switchboard:

  1. Indoor Lights Frequently Dim or Flicker.
  2. Your Home Relies on Fuses and a Fuse Panel.
  3. Old or Faulty Wiring.
  4. Burning or Melting.
  5. Circuit Breakers Fail or Trip Regularly.
  6. The Breaker Trips When You Plug in an Appliance.
  7. A Substantial Remodeling is on the Horizon.

Frequently Asked Questions About LED Downlight Upgrade in Wollongong

Modern LED light fittings offer unparalleled efficiency, converting 85% of the energy consumed into light and not heat.  For comparison sake, an LED downlight consumes just 15% of the energy a 50W halogen downlight consumes, and yet halogen downlights convert just 10% of the energy they consume into light, the other 90% into heat. If you’re still running halogen downlights, you’re literally burning money. Lower Running costs, Reduced energy consumption, Reduced heat, reduced air conditioning costs Lower Maintenance Costs, Reduced maintenance requirements and costs, Practical and Durable, Longer life span, up to 80,000 hours, Manufacturers warranties up to 7 years Safer & Environmentally Friendly, Increased safety, Reduced fire risk, Reduced greenhouse gas emissions, Reduced landfill.

No, modern LED light fittings are often sealed units with no serviceable parts and a long lifecycle.  For that reason, those that we use offer manufacturer’s warranties up to 7 years but we expect they’ll last for up to 10 years without maintenance.  In our experience retrofitted LED lamps rarely endure.

“LED compatible” could be used to describe most fittings, you just need to find an LED lamp to suit it for size and lamp holder.  LED lamps come in various shapes and sizes and incorporate the LED driver, so often, they’re the expensive part of the “LED compatible” light fitting.  Because they’re generally used in a fitting provided by another manufacturer, when they fail, which manufacturer will come to the party with a warranty? We recommend and supply quality, fit-for-purpose LED light fittings with manufacturer’s warranties up to 7 years, however,  we expect they’ll last for up to 10 years without maintenance.

I highly recommend ATD Electrical for both emergency and general work. I’ve engaged them 4 times recently. Twice for emergency work (2021 and 2023) and twice for general work (2019 and 2023). From the moment the phone is answered (quite quickly and 24/7) to the tidying up by the electricians just before they leave, it’s as a professional organisation as you’ll find anywhere.Guy, who took my calls with the emergencies, will organise what’s needed while you wait or ring back with attendance details within a few minutes. Chris and Annie, who fixed my most recent emergency and, separately, attended to some long needed general work, go about their business competently, efficiently and pleasantly. On my experience, this organisation can’t be faulted.

Highly recommend ATD Electrical for your next electrical repair, maintenance or installation.When booking my job I experienced very efficient and professional communication from Guy who kept me updated on the timeframe. Chris and Annie, the tradies who worked on my installation, arrived on time and came with all materials needed for the day; they worked very efficiently with professionalism and displayed courtesy at all times; very pleased with my sub-floor ventilation system. Five stars.

I am very happy with ATD service, as I went from having a dead electrical oven to a working one (wife is happy, as well) and the locking function, after the power outage in east Wollongong on the 3rd of May, became stuck in that mode, as well. ATD were able to disable the locking mode on oven, and also observed that the power plug had the wrong tooth (potential fire hazard, if it shorted out) and replace it, there and then.

We hired an emergency generator used on 1 cargo ship from this company. They were extremely efficient and professional. Especially, Guy was the most helpful sales rep we have seen, responding to an extremely urgent and tedious inquiry in a friendly, professional manner. He also does his best to save you money by making extra effort to complete the project in an efficient, effective way. I highly recommend ATD for any electrical work required.

Bathroom extraction fan installed.I had to defer the job a few times because of the nature of my work. They worked with me each time to set a new date. On the install day the 3 technicians were polite, respectful and cleaned up after themselves. No shortcuts on the job either. Very professional. Thanks to Chris, Annie & Alex on the install and Guy for helping me rearrange installation multiple times and always responding to the copious amount of messages I sent.100pct recommend

I have used ATD several times now and always found them to be very professional and thorough. Guy in the office always lets you know clearly when he can have someone attend your residence. This is usually sooner than later. Our electrician Chris worked tirelessly to solve our problems and I thoroughly appreciate his persistence to get a solution. He didn’t try to take shortcuts or find an easy way out. I totally recommend ATD electrical.

The team at ATD Electrical were fantastic. On realising that we were getting the house painted they removed all fittings for easy access. They then explained ‘special electrical features’ they found and why they should be rectified. They have always communicated well (different options and pricing), turned up on time, stayed late to complete the job and even cleaned up mess that had been left by the painter. Highly recommend ATD Electrical.

We have used ATD Electrical a few years ago to rewire the inside of our house. They were very professional in all aspects of the job and that is why we contacted them again th inspect and repair the main wiring from the supply outside to the house and meter box. Once again the guy,s were on time as arranged. Guy and Chris were friendly and professional in carrying out the repairs and from what I could see and understand it was done properly. Thanks again ATD and their staff for a job well done. Would definitely use this company in the future if needed. Thankyou. Denis Cox.

A small note to thank Grace Jose and Guy for their efforts to help me over a sticky situation. I was caught up with the power supplier to what I now believe was a petty setup. ATD crew tried their best to help me out and for that I want to share good deed with other potential customers. Thanks ATD crew for your support.
