10 Your guide to Show

10 Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections in the Selwyn District Almost a lighting revolution The emergence of LED lighting might almost be mooted a revolution in lighting with them offering brighter, quicker, more cost effective light. While an initial higher outlay, long-term power savings make LEDs more economic with the adage ‘what you pay for is, what you get’ meaning the higher the quality the more benefits. LEDs usually return their initial cost in around a year through power savings while lasting over ten years, especially when a quality fitting. The overall cost of LED lighting is lower than when first introduced to the market. With its benefits much greater, incandescent light bulbs, compact fluorescent lamps and halogen lighting are all becoming a thing of the past. LED lighting is five to six times brighter than its incandescent equivalent and with a narrower beam angle the light is more focussed. Juice Electrical’s Greg Horton recommends LEDs due to their efficiency. “It’s unlikely you’ll need to change an LED fitting for 10-20 years as they last so much longer,” advises Greg. While LED lighting may add $500- $1,500 more to the cost of an average house build, the extra cost is future focussed as they use a tenth of the power for lighting. LED fittings are also becoming cheaper and there are now LED bulbs that can be retrofitted into older light fittings. “The way in which an LED diode is manufactured and the luminescent moulded together determines its quality,” explains Greg. There are other benefits in choosing better quality LEDs too. With high quality ICF LED lights, pink batt insulation can be closed and butted so it sits right beside and over the top of the LED. This was not the case with other lighting methods where insulation had to be cut away from the light fitting as it would heat up posing a fire hazard. With insulation able to cover high quality LED lights, more heat is retained in the home. However a word of warning, some LEDs still require insulation to be cut around them so it is essential you get advice from an electrician first. This is also something a building inspector will check if a new home is being constructed or an alteration requiring building consent is undertaken. LEDs are also ideal if changing a light fitting is a mission, such as with high ceilings and above stairs. Benefits of LED lighting: • Light output is excellent. • LED bulbs are very efficient, using up to 85% less electricity than incandescent bulbs. • LED bulbs last longer than other lighting forms. • Efficient use of electricity and longer life means less impact on the environment. • The LED’s lifespan is not affected by frequently being turned off and on. Negatives of LED lighting: • This form of lighting is initially more expensive. • Many older dimmers will not work with LED light bulbs making it more feasible to change the complete light fitting to an LED one, something Greg recommends as they have a much longer life span. The emergence of LED lighting might almost be mooted a revolution in lighting with them offering brighter, quicker, more cost effective light. LEDs are 5-6 times brighter than incandescent equivalents. LED is more focussed light. LED lighting uses less electricity. Artisan Homes Builders of superior homes. Built to last.
