If you haven’t already heard of LED Lighting, the chances are that you soon will. LED Lights are becoming very popular throughout the UK with homeowners and businesses. They are energy efficient, user friendly and last a lot longer than traditional incandescent and halogen bulbs. This makes them a quintessentially ‘green’ technology, which is helping us all to reduce our carbon footprint and save money on the running cost of lighting. Changing to LED Lights today is actually very easy; just unplug your existing lights and plug in your new bulbs.

What is LED and why buy it?
LED is short for Light Emitting Diode. They are small semiconductors that have been used in electronic appliances for many years. The technology has advanced overtime and now they are capable of producing enough illumination to light a business or home. The advent of LED Lighting is big news for businesses and homeowners. One of the main problems with traditional filament light bulbs is that they wasted a lot of their energy in producing heat rather than light, which would significantly increase the cost of lighting a building. Their fragile filaments would also corrode very quickly over time. Because they don’t rely on filaments, LED Light Bulbs use a tiny fraction, less than 10 per cent, of the energy used by an incandescent or halogen and last around 25 times longer. The reasons for switching to LED is therefore quite straightforward. They save you around 90 per cent on the cost of lighting your home and lower the overall maintenance cost of replacing bulbs. More importantly, they reduce your carbon footprint, which, in an age that has become so concerned about energy conservation, means you are doing your part to save the environment.
What do we sell?
We are currently one of the largest online stockists of ‘retrofit’ LED Light Bulbs. ‘Retrofit’ means they are designed as direct, like-for-like replacements so can be switched straight over with incandescent bulbs, halogens and Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) without the need for modification, rewiring or renovation. Installing them is one of the easiest ways to reduce your carbon footprint and begin saving money on electricity bills. All of our bulbs are available in a wide range of different wattages and the most common light fittings, including GU10 and MR16 LED Spotlights, E27 Edison Screw and B22 Bayonet, which make LED Lights suitable for businesses and homes. Our largest range of bulbs are our GU10. GU10 is a very popular fitting with businesses and homes because they are small, stylish and versatile. They rely on a bi-pin twist lock fitting which can be pushed and clicked into place. Our entire range of GU10 LED Bulbs are designed to the same specifications as traditional halogen bulbs so you will have no difficulty making them fit. Old GU10 halogen bulbs used to be very wasteful and burned out frequently because they overheated. GU10 LED are much more reliable, with a typical life span of between 30,000 and 50,000 hours. They also create a lot less heat which makes them much safer. Each of our product images has an ‘equivalent incandescent wattage’ guide which will help you see how GU10 LEDs compare with standard bulbs. We think you will be quite surprised.
All of our bulbs are available in two main colours; warm white and cool white. For more information on these colour temperatures, please visit our exclusive blog page.
