Energy saving LED lighting solutions utilising LED technology for interior down light replacement. LED lighting can also be used for exterior illumination to complete the perfect garden without the worry of running costs when hosting that important garden party or family BBQ.

It is very cost-effective to replace your incandescent and CFL bulbs with LED light bulbs. Contrary to popular belief, it is relatively simple to install LED lights at home.

LED lighting products come in one of two varieties: 'retro-compatible' or 'complete unit'. Retro-compatible products are LED versions of traditional lighting products. They'll fit exactly where your old bulbs and lamps were. For example LED T8 tubes, LED GU10 bulbs, and LED GLS bulbs are all 'retro-fit'. While smaller products like LED bulbs can be installed directly, retro-fit industrial and commercial products like LED tubes need an electrician to remove the old fittings 'control gear' before they can be used. It's a five minute job. 'Complete units' are put up to replace outdated fluorescent, halogen (etc.) fittings. LED high bays for example, don't have a traditional 'bulb' but instead have a powerful light emitting 'chip' built into the product. After 50,000+ hours use, you replace the complete LED unit.


VOLTAGE OPTIMISATION

By reducing and managing the voltage coming into your home, a voltage optimisation device will ensure that your electrical appliances use less electricity by using only what they need to and cost less to run.

Most electrical equipment manufactured for Europe and the UK is rated at 230V and may indeed operate at an even lower voltage. One of the reasons power optimisation is so effective is that the average voltage supplied from the National Grid is 242V although it can be as high as 253V), whereas the given voltage is 230V. So, in most cases, you will have a higher voltage supply than you need – and you're paying for it, whether you want it, need it, use it or not. There is nothing to be gained by operating equipment at a voltage higher than it was designed for; quite the contrary as over-voltage will significantly reduce the life expectancy of most equipment. Power optimisation therefore also reduces maintenance costs.


The voltage optimisation unit manages voltage to a stable level, normally 220V in the UK, regardless of the incoming supply voltage. Savings will vary and are dependent on incoming voltage and individual devices. Testing by voltage optimisation on fridges and freezers shows a saving of 17%, 15% on normal light bulbs and 10% on energy saving light bulbs. One digital cordless phone showed an extraordinary saving of 44%. Further savings can be made on washing machines, tumble driers, dishwashers, televisions and numerous other electrical appliances across the whole house. Typically, whole house savings are in the region of 10% - which means, household electricity bills will be around 10% less each year. Voltage optimisation Voltage Optimisation is a fit and forget solution that once installed will operate silently and unobtrusively, lowering and stabilising household voltage, saving money, reducing CO2 emissions and preventing energy waste.
