What does LED Stand for?
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode and is a two-lead semiconductor light source. It is a p–n junction diode that emits light when activated.
When a suitable current is applied to the leads, electrons are able to recombine with electron holes within the device, releasing energy in the form of photons.
This effect is called electroluminescence, and the color of the light (corresponding to the energy of the photon) is determined by the energy band gap of the semiconductor. LEDs are typically small (less than 1 mm2) and integrated optical components may be used to shape the radiation pattern.
How do we upgrade or install your LED downlight?
If you have existing downlights we will prepare the area where we're upgrading the downlights. Drop sheets and plastic will be laid over your furniture and floors. We then remove the old units, drill out the ceiling correct dimension so the new LED downlights fit in snug.
The next step is we re strip the connections after pulling them out of the existing halogen transformer, we then install a plug base in the ceiling, this is like installing a power point, only in the ceiling. The benefit of this is, should one ever fail, it will be a simple process to pull one down and replace it.

A room may need more or less light depending on the size, arrangement, and atmosphere you’re looking to create. As a handy rule of thumb, we keep LED downlights 1500mm apart and 1000mm off walls where possible. Usually, bedrooms have 4 and kitchen living have 6 or so.
Low quality and old LED are common causes of flicker. This was because old LED have no persistence and are connected directly to an alternating current (AC). We recommend replacing or upgrade your LED downlight to a high-quality and modern LED that requires a direct current (DC) rather than an alternating current (AC) power supply.
The cost will depend on the number of lights and how accessible the existing wiring is. On average the cost to replace halogen downlights is around $60 – $80 per downlight.
