What are You Paying for When You Invest in LED Lights? Scientific & Usage Insights

LED Lighting Products

Going the LED lighting route has become a smart move from a financial and environmental perspective for a wide range of homes and businesses here in Australia. Many providers will refer to the fact that changing from conventional halogen and incandescent globes to LED can pay for itself within just few months, given that it is much more energy efficient. But there’s no doubting that the fact that the initial investment can be quite large, especially when you’re having them installed in a large factory or warehouse for example.

It’s important to remember that there is a great deal of technology that goes into every LED globe. This article will take a look at a few of the main features included in the purchase of LED lights.

Semiconductor Chip

Semiconductor Chips

The chip is essentially what converts the electrical energy into light, making it one of the most important and expensive components of an LED oyster light or floodlights. These will vary greatly in quality and higher quality lights will generally have more advanced and efficient chips. Often this will mean the chip is encased in a plastic shell, which not only extends its life and protects the various wires from damage, but also acts as something of a lens, causing the light to be shone at a certain angle and extending its coverage.

Driver Component

LED drivers come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and varieties and are responsible for regulating the power that goes to the LED lights. Basically, without it too, the LED would draw more and more current and eventually burn out. A driver is tuned to the specification of the LED light and controls power accordingly, and every different kind of LED will have a different kind of driver. Selecting the right driver is therefore hugely important as it can determine how efficient and durable your LED lights are.


Unless you’re purchasing your LED lights retail and have the skills to properly install them yourself, you’ll need your supplier to come and set them up for you. This will include installing the LED light themselves with their connectors and power units, ensuring that all wiring is out of sight everything looks terrific. The electricians will not only ensure that your LED lights are installed correctly, but they should get the job done quickly and without disrupting your business.


A good LED supplier will always stand by the quality of their products and include a warranty as a part of the price. This will ensure that if there are any technical faults in any of the LED globes or they aren’t functioning correctly, the supplier will replace them no questions asked. Some companies offer 3 year manufacturer’s warranty covers all defects on workmanship and materials used, ensuring you are looked after well into the future.

This covers most of the things that are included when you make the move to LED lighting with a professional supplier. It’s always a good idea to search around and look at different providers to find out which offers the best return on investment without compromising on customer services and support.
