Are you making use of the most modern lighting systems possible? If you're not, you could be paying for more energy than you need. The specialist team at Woods Electrical Services can upgrade your lighting systems and reduce your energy usage by up to 82%.

There are two general types of upgrades: a retrofit and an entire luminaire replacement. A retrofit changes only part of an existing luminaire system, such as lamp or control gear. The other option is to replace the entire luminaire with a new luminaire.

Our electrical technicians can consult with you to help decide which type of upgrade is right for your situation. Depending on your budget and current set-up, we can perform either type of upgrade and save you both energy and money in the long run.

Upgrading halogen lamps to LED

Halogen lamps are commonly used in the home and office. They are a form of incandescent lamp that contains iodine, significantly prolonging their useful life, and allowing their filaments to burn hotter than other bulbs. While they are generally more efficient than other incandescent lamps, they are less effective than LEDs.

LEDs, or Light Emitting Diodes, work by passing electricity through a semiconductor, producing photons. An LED can provide more usable light per unit of energy than a halogen lamp, which allows them to shine brighter, and longer, from the same amount of electrical charge. LEDs also produce very little heat, relative to other light sources, so less energy is wasted. Obviously, this means that they're better for your electrical bills, and for the environment as well.

However, LEDs are not suitable for all uses. Glare can be a problem, as they do not work well with light fittings designed for other types of lamp. Because of this, many light fittings are now designed specifically with LEDs in mind.

If you're interested in reaping the benefits of LED technology or want to upgrade your existing halogen-based lighting system but aren't sure if it will work for you, a member of our friendly and knowledgeable team will be happy to discuss your lighting needs with you.
