LED Chandelier Lighting
Chandelier and candelabra lighting lamps and bulbs have traditionally been incandescent, offering a candle lamp with a good quality light. Since the invention of LED lighting, trying to create a traditional looking candle LED for chandeliers has been hard, until now. With changes and improvements in LED design, over the past few months we have seen more of these conventional looking LED Chandelier compatible candles, appear on the market.
Many modern and older chandeliers have different fitting types such as bayonet and edison screw, fortunately LED lights gives you the flexibility of being able to offer both these fittings whilst providing the energy savings and other benefits that LED has to offer.
Benefits of LED Chandelier Lighting
- Energy usage reduction of up to 80%
- Helps cut the cost of your energy bills
- Up to 25,000 hour lifetime compared to 1000 - 2500 for incandescent
- Lower maintenance as have to be replaced less frequently
- Less heat output from the chandelier or candelabra
- Sleek design help make new LEDs fit in with classical decor
- Available in a number of fitting types
Whilst some people may think the investment to move from incandescent to LED is an expensive one, the long term benefits such as those above outweigh those of incandescent and finally, these can now be shared with those in the LED Chandelier lamp market.
How much would I save by installing LED Chandelier Lighting and is it worth it compared to Incandescent?
One of the greatest advantages of converting to LED is without a doubt the savings. Compared to a traditional 40W incandescent lamp, by installing an LED with only 6W power you could see savings £7.45 a year with low home use per bulb and in a hospitality or retail environment these savings could be closer to £18 a year per bulb.
Even with 12 hours a day usage, this bulb example would last just under 5 years, which offers great payback compared to Incandescent which would need to be changed every 4/5 months.
Are they easy to install and do I need an electrician?
Installing an LED bulb is just as easy as installing an incandescent bulb, simply unscrew the edison or bayonet fitting and replace with the LED. The advantage of LED Chandelier bulbs is that replacing would have to be done much less often. Especially with chandeliers which can be high up, hard to reach and extremely delicate, doing this job less often due to installing LEDs with longer lifespan is a huge advantage.
