Downlight Installation

Downlight Installation

Many homeowners in Sandringham, Victoria are upgrading to downlights for their homes. Not only are they a beautiful and modern solution for illuminating your living space, but they come with a multitude of benefits.

Types of Downlights

LED Downlights:

LED lights last longer and are more energy-efficient than CFL lights. They are the more popular choice among homeowners.

Can I Install Downlights Myself or Should I get a Professional?

You can change the bulb yourself if your existing light fitting can accommodate a straight swap from the old halogen bulb to a new LED bulb. If you are unsure, check with an electrician.

You can purchase a downlight kit if you need new fittings, but you will still need to hire an electrician for proper installation. Trying to install them yourself is against regulations and can result in a fire hazard.

Benefits of LED Downlights


They don’t produce as much heat, which reduces the risk of a fire hazard. LED lights are more eco-friendly as they don’t contain any harmful chemicals.

Energy saving

LED bulbs use up to 90% less energy than old incandescent bulbs while still providing the same illumination level.

Lower energy costs

Consuming fewer energy results in lower energy costs. LED bulbs also have a longer lifespan, up to 10 times longer than halogens.
