LED Lighting

Lighting is the simplest way to make energy efficiency changes in your home or office. By changing a lamp to a higher efficiency unit you have the ability to use up to 80% less energy on the unit you changed.

Some basic lighting information:

  • Incandescent lamps are being phased out over the next few years.
  • Compact Florescent Lamps (CFL's) are getting cheaper in price but the quality for most of these has diminished with the price reduction.
  • New Zealand has tripled its dumping of mercury into the waste as a result of CFL purchasing.

Some basic lighting information:

  • A LED or "light emitting diode" which is an electronic device when power passes through it light is emitted. By changing the materials where the light is emitted the colour of the lamp changes.
  • By grouping sets of LED chips together you get the power output required for the task. Our T8 1200mm tube has 264 SMD chips on every unit. Some lamps have just one large chip.
  • LED Lamps last longer if the little heat generated is removed from the junction point of the lamp. The best lamps have elaborate methods of quickly removing heat.
  • LED chips could under Lab conditions work for 100,000 hour plus. In the real world with the best engineering 50,000hrs in a cooler area can be achieved realistically.
  • LEDs have no toxins like mercury to help generate electricity.
  • Low voltage LED lamps need a driver that will operate them.
  • There has been close to 10,000 factories building LED lamps in Asia. 95% of these produce low quality lamps.

Why use our lamps

  • Life from 20,000 - 50,000 hours
  • Payback beginning from just over 12 months.
  • Use between 50 to 85% less energy.
  • High quality engineering and design leads to longer expected life.
