Here at EDC we supply a large choice of led lights for a variety of needs , we also able to provide a complete installation service. So please contact us for any up coming projects or a free survey on how much led lighting can save you on your energy bill.
EDC only install quality products and exceptional LED lighting products, we do this due to the market being flooded with cheap imports so this way we can ensure quality products every time and most products come with a 5 year warranty, and comply or exceed the requirements of the current UK building regulations.
HOW GREAT ARE THE ENERGY SAVINGS?
Did you know electric lighting burns 25% of the average home energy budget!
LED’s (Light Emitting Diodes) have revolutionised energy-efficient lighting using on average 20% (or less!) of the energy required to power a traditional filament or energy saving lamp but offering a comparable or better light output.
LED’s HAVE A GREATER LIFESPAN?
Yes, ECOLED LED Lighting products should last more than 50,000 hours with very small reductions in light output over their lifetime. That is over 15 years in an average household (based on 8 hours usage per day) and is 25 times longer than typical incandescent light bulbs! Additionally, with the exceptionally low failure rate, maintenance is virtually eliminated! LED lighting is solid-state and does not have a filament and so is virtually indestructible.
ARE THEY REALLY ECO FRIENDLY?
YES! ECOLED lighting products are mercury free unlike compact fluorescent lamps which need careful disposal. Typically, ECOLED products are made from materials such as glass, steel and aluminium so are almost fully recyclable at the end of their lives.
I’VE SEEN LED LIGHTING IN THE SHOPS AND THEIR LIGHT COLOUR CAN APPEAR STRANGE. IS THIS TYPICAL?
No. LED lighting is now available in many different “colour temeratures” (Kelvin) including warm white (around 3000k) which is mainly associated with the quality of light we have all become used to with low voltage halogen. Warmer and cooler colour temperatures are also available. It may just be that your local supplier is behind the times!
WHAT ABOUT THE OUTPUT? LED BULBS I’VE SEEN ARE NOT VERY BRIGHT.
This is true, certainly of ‘LED bulbs,’ not of ECOLED products
ARE THEY COST EFFECTIVE? HOW CAN I TELL?
One of the common concerns with LED is the higher general purchase price. However, the cost of changing to LED lighting is soon recouped over time such are the enormous energy savings. Further, ECOLED products ensure compliance with new building regulations and the energy saving requirements.
A moderate home using 30 ecoled downlight could see savings in excess of £500 per year from their electricity bill!
CAN I RUN ECOLEDS USING MY SOLAR/WIND POWER?
Absolutely! Due to the extremely low power requirements, ECOLED LED lights are very suitable for use with solar panel or wind power generators. If you wish to run on 12 Volt or 24 Volt please speak with us and we will provide the solution.
WHAT’S A PSU AND DO I NEED ONE?
Simply put, PSU stands for Power Supply Unit – a transformer in laymans’ terms. All LED’s need either constant voltage or constant current at very low voltages some of our lamps and fittings have them built in.
CAN I FIX MY LEDS TO DIMMER SWITCHES?
Yes, but you will require a dimmable PSU and an appropriate dimmer control usually ‘trailing edge’ type. This doesn’t apply to all LED products so you should check.
