Lighting Guide

Lighting contributes about 30% to the average Australian households energy bills, so it makes up an important part of the electricity you are paying for.

The energy we use to light our homes produces harmful greenhouse gas emissions.

Choosing lighting products with energy efficient globes contributes to a cleaner environment as energy saver lights are designed to reduce energy consumption by 75%!


Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL) 

Energy Efficient

Benefits of choosing CFL lighting:

  • Lower power consumption (11W CFL is equivalent to 50W incandescent 20w CD: is equivalent to 100w incandescent)
  • Longer life
  • Better diffusion of light means good area lighting

CFL Downlights CFL lighting:

  • CFL downlights produce minimal heat unlike traditional halogen downlights.
  • Brilliant Jupiter 5 CFL downlights provide plenty of light without consuming lots of power. A 20 watt CFL globe provides equivalent light to a 100w traditional globe.
  • Fluorescent globes can last up to 8 times longer than conventional globes. Replacing a room full of halogen downlights with CFL downlights could save you around $300 a year.


How Compact Fluorescent Lighting (CFL) works:

Compact fluorescent bulbs (CFL) produce light that's more diffuse than incandescent bulbs or LEDs, so they are very good for area lighting.

Energy efficient CFL globes reduce electricity consumption by 20%!

They use less energy, AND produce less heat helping to save energy in cooling costs and prolonging the life of the bulb.

Contribute to a cleaner environment by using energy efficient globes - they are designed to reduce energy consumption by more than 70%!


Liquid Emitting Diode (LED)

LED - Efficient, brighter, longer

What is LED?

An LED is a diode which emits light when an electric current passes through it. Unlike traditional lighting, LEDs do not have filaments, and do not heat up to produce light. 


Benefits of Choosing LED Lighting:

  • Very Low Power Consumption
  • Very Long Life
  • Robust and Shock Resistant
  • Faster Response Times than most compact fluorescent, energy saving bulbs


How LED Lighting Works:

LEDs are like an electrical one-way valve that glows rather than getting hot when a lot of pressure is put through.

These diodes are also then sealed in resin to make them both shockproof and waterproof.
