5 Things Electricians do want you to know about LED Lights
1. LED's are easy to fit
LED fixtures and fittings are quite easy to install, despite popular belief to the contrary, easy to operate, and will help you reduce your energy costs each month. Because the majority of LED bulbs are retrofit, installing them at home is as simple as popping the LED replacement bulb directly into a traditional fixture. This means that those old lamps, lights and other spots can be given a modern, money saving feel with ease. Even LED Tube Lights and LED Strip Lights are surprisingly easy to install. Before consulting an electrician, see our easy to follow steps here Installing LED Lights.

3. The choice is vast, there is an LED to suit all personal preferences
Electricians know alot about lighting but they can't read your mind! In order to get the best result, make sure you advise your electritian of your preferred colour temperature or what lighting mood you want to create, how directional you want the beam of light or the brightness you prefer. TThis will ensure that your installer does the best job and the result you are happy with. If you are not sure then LightRabbit have a friendly team of LED advisors who listen to your individual requirements and, with years of LED expertise behind them, are able to guide you to the most suitable LED for your personal needs.

4. CFL bulbs are NOT better than LED bulbs
The Compact Fluorescent (CFL) bulb is a popular lighting choice primarily as a result of its energy efficiency/cost savings, superior lifetime, and environmental friendliness. Yes, CFLs outperform a 100-year old technology, but LED is the newest lighting technology and without question outperforms the CFL ten fold. Here's why: LEDs use less power, LEDs have a longer lifetime, LEDs have less impact on the environment and human health, LEDs are more robust and LEDs offer greater cost savings.
