We are big fans of LED lighting. The benefits are many: they have lower wattage, lower running costs, produce less heat and have a longer bulb life. That is all good news for your wallet – and the environment. LEDs are now available in many styles, sizes, colours and wattages. Most older lights can also be retrofitted with LED bulbs and control units. These sort of LED light conversions are worth considering: a 5 watt LED bulb will give you same amount of light output as an old-style halogen 50 watt bulb.
