LED Downlights in Freshwater

Give Lightning Bult Electrical a call today to get your downlights installed

The Brief

Lightning Bult Electrical and Plumbing was called to this project to install some LED downlights in the living area of a home in Freshwater, NSW.

The customers wanted to replace the existing lights with some that made the home look and feel more modern. They also liked the idea of being able to save money on their electricity bills, due to the cheap running costs of LED lighting.

Our Approach to this LED downlights

Halogen downlights are a very in-efficient light source! They get very hot, In fact most of the energy consumed by a traditional downlight is in heat! This causes the parts of the fitting to get brittle and you’ll often see the metal work of a halogen downlight discoloured which is also due to the heat. We replaced all of the lights in the apartment with new LED downlights and also some dimmers as well.

Some of the lights in the apartment were not working, some were very dim and some were discolouring.

Obstacles that we overcame

There were a few challenges to overcome on this job. The existing lights were hard wired and LED lights must have a plug base in the ceiling to connect to.

The existing downlights were only 50mm wide and the new lights are larger and therefore we had to cut the correct size hole through the ceiling and its an older double layer ceiling called horse hair (used up to the 1970s) this can create a lot of mess unless you are very careful.

The apartment is lived in as well so we take precautions with the furniture thats in every room.

 

The Result

It was a great success and the customer was very happy.
