Reduce Heat Loss and Save Energy

Are you looking for ways to reduce your power bills? Do you want brighter, better quality lighting throughout your home? Are you looking to reduce your carbon footprint? At DES, we can reduce your power bills and carbon footprint, while increasing the amount of light in your home. We retrofit incandescent downlights over to LED downlights which can be covered with insulation. Getting rid of any fire risks that can be existing with insulation over old incandescent downlights. We also provide LED lighting solutions for any mounted light fittings.

We supply warm and cool LED lighting for any size lights and have dimmable options.

How does this affect your power bill?

New LED lights use significantly less energy than your standard incandescent light, reducing your power consumption. Standard incandescent light and old downlights temperatures can reach 250˚C-360˚C (which is very hot). Old downlights have holes on top of the fittings which contributes to heat loss and increased energy cost inside your home.

Our LED downlights are rated to be covered with insulation without getting hot.

Reducing the Risk of Fire in Your Home with Residential LED Lighting Solutions

A lot of New Zealand homes still have old incandescent downlights that are covered by insulation, this is a fire risk.

To correct the problem, you would need to remove the insulation to approximately 200mm away from the light fitting. This would leave large holes in your roof cavity and in turn will make your home cold in winter and hot in summer, costing you more money on your energy bill. Alternatively, you can remove the lights, re-gib, re-plaster and repaint which will cost you a lot of money $$$$.

Our solution is to replace your old downlights with our new LED downlights that can be covered with insulation. We retrofit your lights to reduce your cost (NO re-gibing, re-plastering and repainting), sizing to suit all types of downlights and budgets.

We also have solutions for old mounted fittings, a range of colours, various sizes and different shapes, lights for your every need.
