Say goodbye to your halogen light bulbs. There is a ban coming September 2020, but manufacturers are going to start phasing them out before then.
This switch to LED bulbs will save Australian consumers as much as $1.48 billion over the next 10 years. Are you still on the fence about this conversion?
We’re going to show you all the benefits of LED lighting. By the time we’re done, you’ll be wondering why you’ve waited so long to make the switch in your home.
The typical LED bulb has a lifespan of 15,000 to 50,000 hours. That means that your bulbs are going to last 5 to 10 times longer than those halogen bulbs you are using right now.
Think about all that time and money you’ll save by not having to replace your bulbs as often. If your LED bulb lasts 15,000 hours, you could leave a light on 24 hours a day, every day, and that bulb would last you almost 2 whole years!
Most homes in Australia can reduce their energy usage for lights by 50% if they switched to LED bulbs. This is because their efficiency is anywhere from 4 to 7 times that of halogen and incandescent bulbs.
Take a look around your kitchen, it could probably use an upgrade. LEDs are perfect for this.
Light bulbs tend to be too bulky and don’t give off the right of kind of light. You can choose from a variety of LEDs that give off the light in different brightness, temperatures, and angles.
One major concern with light bulbs is the heat that they generate and give off. This can become a fire safety concern when the bulb is too close to potentially flammable materials.
LEDs do not have this same problem. That makes them perfect for lighting confined areas or lighting fixtures with fabric shades.
Regular light bulbs are delicate. From the glass to the filament, you have to be careful you don’t accidentally break them.
This isn’t the case with LEDs. They can withstand you dropping them and causing shock without any adverse effects.
Think about it this way, these little bulbs get used in a variety of applications on cars, motorcycles, and boats. If they can withstand that kind of abuse, lighting your home will be a piece of cake.
Benefits of LED Lighting

Take this as a sign that it’s time to embrace the benefits of LED lighting. These small light emitting diodes are durable, efficient, and bright.
They also don’t generate the heat that bulbs can produce. This makes them perfect for uses in tight fitting areas.
