Fortunately, LED lights provide a solution, eliminating this problem and keeping your ceilings looking pristine.

Frequently Ask Questions

Why should you install led downlights?

LED downlights are highly efficient when it comes to energy conservation. Compared to incandescent bulbs, these lights can save you up to 80% of electricity, and compared to halogen lamps, you save up to 75%. It can positively affect your energy bills, and the low-voltage power supply also ensures increased safety.

How many LED downlights do I need per room?

For optimum, bright, and even lighting results, installing one downlight per square meter, with a one-meter spacing between each downlight, and a half-meter distance from the walls, is recommended.

Do LED-lights use a lot of energy?

LEDs are far more efficient when it comes to power consumption than incandescent bulbs, and this is true even for string lights, such as those used for decorative purposes, such as Christmas tree lights.

Why are my LED downlights flickering?

One of the primary flickering sources is an incompatibility between dimmers and downlights. The dimmers and downlights must be synchronised to work in harmony to avoid this. Utilising older dimmers, designed for halogen lights, with LED downlights could cause flickering.
