New Rules on Fluorescent Lamps
The Federal Governments wants everyone to reduce energy usage & improve sustainability & toward that effort, costly recycling of fluorescent lamps will become compulsory with a few years due to the Mercury content in fluorescent lamps.
As well, customers will benefit from reduced power consumption and cost savings by replacing standard 36 watt fluro tubes with 16 Watt LED tubes. LED tubes have a very long lasting rated life of 40,000 hours as opposed to fluro tubes with 12,000 -15000 hours. Reduced maintenance costs are also a big benefit. Very importantly there is no Mercury content in LED lamps as there is in fluro lamps.

New led Lighting Systems
LED lighting systems are the new kids on the block & they are growing up. In specific areas, LED systems offer long life, lower electricity costs with low maintenance & no Mercury content as in fluro lamps. They can provide a magnificent illumination impact & an improved image with beautiful colours as well.
As a further example of what is happening with LED lighting technology, & as confirmation of their reliability, check out all the new LED traffic lights that are currently being installed Australia wide. State governments are using this technology due to the proven benefits as noted above.
As another example, the management of the USA Walmart retail conglomerate involving thousands of retail shops across the USA have already replaced their existing high voltage Neon signage with the latest low voltage LED signage. This massive retail network will enjoy substantial cost savings & an improved image to all their outlets.
It’s all happening with LED Technology.
Halogen Downlights – Safety Alert
The usual & very popular 50 Watt Halogen lights are no longer sold in Australia due to the number of fires caused in the ceilings of homes as a result of the heat that is produce from each lamp. Minimise the cause of such fires by installing heat shields over each fixture.
Alternatively, replace those light fixtures with the new technology, LED fixtures. LED’s will reduce the heat that is generated from Halogen downlights & at the same time reduce your power costs.
