[Edition datE] SELWYN TIMES Tuesday June 21 2016 35 3 SELWYN HOME PROFESSIONALS A WARM AND BRIGHT WINTER WiTh The darker nights, it is a good time to consider the efficiency of lighting in your home and consider the value in upgrading to the latest form of illumination. leD lighting is an extremely efficient form of lighting due to it using around 85% less power than a conventional light while producing a much nicer light. “Whether building a new house, renovating or just upgrading one or more lights around the home, leD lights are the way to go,” says Greg horton from a electrical. “With existing homes, it’s not always affordable to change all lights to leD at the same time so many of our customers are just upgrading their main lights, then replacing the balance of lights in their home over time. This makes the transition more affordable and we can offer some good deals on leD lighting to help this process.” a electrical install complete replacement leD light fittings. as these are sealed, there are no gaps through which heat can be lost or dust can get into the home and pink batts can be placed right over the top of these. “There are now some very efficient leD outdoor lights available on the market too which match traditional lighting prices and we can also supply and fit these for customers”, adds Greg. he is also a big fan of the Mitsubishi hypercore heat Pump, available in four and six kilowatt sizes. The six kilowatt hypercore will deliver six kilowatts of heat even at minus five degrees.
