An often overlooked aspect of any home is lighting and the associated cost, which can have a significant effect on the energy efficiency and comfort of it, as well as the impact on your power bills...
The problem of older style downlights and lights that are recessed into the ceiling is that 95% of the power they use is converted to heat, not light. Theses styles of lighting require 100mm of clearance between the light fitting and any insulation, which leaves large gaps in the ceiling insulation, rather like “Swiss cheese”
We recommend installing I-C Rated LED downlights. These lights do not emit a lot of heat, and insulation can be placed directly over them, increasing the energy efficiency of your home, and effectiveness of your insulation.
