With advancements in technology, the inefficiency and potential safety risks associated with halogen and incandescent lamps (due to the amount of heat they produce), there’s never been a better time to change all the lights in your home to LED.
LED lights are becoming the future of home lighting, as they use very little energy, have a long lifespan and, unlike regular energy-saving bulbs, they are instantly bright when switched on.
Saxby Lighting extensive range
Saxby Lighting offers an extensive range of fittings that are compatible with LED lamps, as well as numerous integrated fittings. We invest a lot of time and effort to ensure that we can offer our customers a direct halogen & incandescent lamp replacement. We strive to ensure the lamps have the same shape and look, a higher lumen output and reduce how often they needed replacing.
A trial by consumer group Which? found that a kitchen lit by six 42-watt halogen lamps with the brightness of a traditional 60-watt bulb would usually cost nearly £29.00 for the duration of a year. They found 10-watt LED lights of the same brightness will cost just under £7.00 over a year. This is a huge saving for just one room, and when implemented throughout your home could save hundreds each year.

Benefits of LED lighting
Energy efficiency – LED lamps save a considerable amount of energy. Incandescent and halogen light bulbs create light through heat and as a result of this around 90% of the energy is wasted to produce heat. Even though LED get warm, the majority of the energy is used to create light.
Longer life span – LED’s have on average a 15 times longer life span than typical incandescent lamps, meaning they don’t need to be replaced as often. This makes them not only energy efficient, but also reduces maintenance.
Safety – LED lamps are safer than compact fluorescent ones as they don’t contain toxic elements such as mercury. This makes them easier to recycle and less dangerous to have in your home.
