- Tungsten halogen
- Fluorescent lighting
- Cold Cathode
LED technology is currently an expanding market with many households, commercial and industrial buildings getting rid of their current lighting systems and replacing it with LED. LED is poised to dominate the market in the years ahead, with expected annual growth of roughly 50 percent through 2015 by 2020, the LED share of the lighting market could realistically reach 90 percent.
LEDs boast several other advantages over conventional lighting (such as incandescent halogen, compact fluorescent, and high-intensity discharge lighting):
- Quality white-light source
- Instant, dimmable light
- No heat emission
- No mercury
- Small size (miniaturization)
- High efficacy
Common problems and issues we have come across in domestic households are issues with spotlight systems.
- Bad terminations
- Badly installed
- Bad cabling
- Bulbs to near to the installation in the ceiling, melting the cables
- Bulbs to near to wooden joist
- Bulbs constantly blowing
- Transformers faulty
- GU10 bulbs being too hot and emitting to much energy
- Unable to dim
Not only are these the main issues but from bad workmanship and the general way it is designed on many occasions we have seen potentially high level of fire hazards.
New LED technology has improved dramatically and there
are many different types you can now get in the market, they range from
emitting 3-12 Watts of energy and outputting up to 46 Watts of energy, your
current GU10 halogen bulb emits 50W. Which means you will still get the same
level of light consumption however you are using energy is much lower, not to
mention environmental friendly. How it is wired up is simply from the 240v from
the mains, no transformer is required (obviously meaning less maintenance), the
lamp holder part is then connected then the LED light itself.
They have a life expectancy from 5-10 years and if there ever are problems you simply just replace the bulb yourself without having to contact an electrician to replace the transformer or lamp holder itself.
Outdoor LED lighting has dramatically improved over the last year. There are now many different types of models which last longer, offer the same light output, look great and also at affordable prices.
People are getting rid of the old halogen bulbs that constantly blow and uses much more energy.
Commercial and Industrial Lighting
At EDS Electrical (London) we offer our commercial and industrial customers a service to re-lamp entire offices and get rid of the old Fluorescent lighting systems which use transformers / balis’s and starter motors.
In the long run big savings are made on electricity bills and maintenance cost for example you are in a building with loads of offices or hotel over say for example 20 floors. You don’t have to constantly have a maintenance person changing bulbs or calling in electricians all the time.
Our customers have been very pleased with their decisions in changing to LED and we have had fantastic review and feedback from how much things have changed for them for the better.
