LED lighting in the home or the office

LED Lighting In The Home Or The Office

28 October 2020

Who isnʼt concerned about rising energy consumption in your home or office? What about the cost savings that are literally being burnt away above our heads due to old lighting systems. 

Rising energy bills and the potential to make a financial saving of over 80% are just two reasons which are bringing more and more people to the conclusion that now is the time to change over to an LED lighting system. These systems also offer environmental benefits of LEDs as well as the improved lifespan over regular bulbs.     

How hot are your lights?

Burned wires, Quantum

An interesting fact: the average LED lamp runs at a temperature of 45 degrees whilst its halogen equivalent gets to a whopping 300! It's worth noting here that the build-up of heat from LED lights is so much less. Not only is the cost and convenience of LED lighting much better, but there is a real safety benefit over from the fire risk presented by old-style halogen downlight.

As you can see in the image, our engineers have quite often found melted cables above halogen downlights. The wires here have burnt away due to the heat build-up above this halogen fitting. This was discovered and removed during a recent LED lighting upgrade in London, which helped the homeowner narrowly miss a house fire! 

LEDs last soooooooo much longer

Lifespan of bulbs, Quanum


LED Lights are the longest lasting types of lights, with their average lifespan being 50,000 hours!

This means that not only do you get more light for your buck but that the inconvenience and costs associated with accessing awkward lighting and changing lamps and bulbs also drops.
