Vibe Eco’s 9W LED Retrofit Downlight lamp

As we all know, saving money on electricity has become quite a hot topic for most citizens over the last 6 months.

On the 3rd December 2012, Today Tonight produced a short 6 minute video, which involved a family who invited experts into their home, they assisted in giving them as much useful information and products that would help reduce as much energy consumption as possible. Everything that was talked about can easily be applied to your home or workplace.

During the video, Energy auditor Petar Basanovic from Water and Energy Savers, informed viewers and the family that “Halogen globes run about 50 watts each”. So it was goodbye to 28 energy munching halogens and say hello to 28 energy saving, eco-friendly LED’s.

The brand he recommended to replace the Halogen globes are in fact ANL Lighting’s Vibe Eco brand.

Vibe Eco Lighting is dedicated to providing environmentally friendly lighting products to the general public. These products are all Do-It-Yourself products, so they are easy to install without having to get a qualified electrician in. Vibe Eco Lighting aim to support local retailers and protect the environment with these eco-friendly products.

These products are carefully chosen to provide superior quality, while helping the environment at the same time. These products all have LED technology, as LED’s are at the forefront of new energy saving lighting.

Vibe Eco Lighting products are easy to recognise, as they are in bright orange packaging. So when you are thinking of green lighting, look for the orange box and you won’t be disappointed.

The lamp he chose was the Vibe Eco 9W LED Retrofit lamp, also known as a direct replacement lamp. As mentioned, this lamp has an extremely long life of 50,000 hours which assists in saving you up to 80% on energy and maintenance costs. They are available in a 6W & 9W with two colour temperature choices of 3000K (warm white) & 4000K (cool white).

More helpful DIY tips include:

  • Switching over to more energy efficient lighting such as LED’s
  • Turning off all appliances at the power point
  • When thinking of buying new appliances, make sure you check their energy star rating – the more stars the better
  • Decrease thermostats on heater – this can save you 15%
  • When purchasing a new computer consider a laptop, as it uses around 60W of power, whereas a Desktop uses 300W.
  • When it comes to bathing time choose to have a shower rather then a bath. 5 minute showers are sufficient, if you need to, buy a timer.
  • Wash your dishes in a sink rather than using a dishwasher.
  • When washing clothes, only put a full load on
  • Turn off the lights once you leave the room.
  • When you wake up in the morning, instead of turning the light on, open your curtains and let light into your room that way.
  • Save energy by hanging your clothes on the clothes line rather than using the dryer.
  • If you can, switch from electric to gas hot water.
  • Try and use a Microwave to cook your meal whenever possible, as it uses less than half the energy of an oven.
  • If possible use your fire place for warmth rather than your heating system

Although the initial cost’s on trying to reduce energy consumption may be high, the amount of money you will save in the long run is never ending.

Practical LED replacement Downlight Lamp

Practical LED replacement Downlight Lamp

Leading Australian lighting distributor VIBE, has switched on the latest in LED downlight technology with a new 7w LED MR16 style lamp and has the compact fluorescent and halogen replacement market firmly in its sights.

These high quality VIBE 7w MR16 downlights (with Nichia 183 LED’s), present as the most serious contender yet seen in the LED versus halogen downlight battle.

According to VIBE, the 7w MR16 LED is a major step forward in LED interior lighting and is available in both warm white (308 Lumens) and natural white (450 Lumens) and in two styles – one of which is 100% dimmable and is a direct replacement for most halogen MR16 type lamps.

LED in comparison to halogen has a much lower running cost, emits far less heat and has a lamp life that is at least 8 – 10 times longer.

VIBE director Phillip Hill said the new generation 7w LED MR16 lamps “are a persuasive economic and eco-friendly alternative compared to the energy hungry and inefficient 50-watt halogen lamps commonly used up until now.”

Philip Hill: ” At today’s power prices, the VIBE 7wLED MR16 lamp will use only $42 worth of electricity during its long 40,000 hour life*.”
(*based on 0.15c per Kwh)

Compare that with its 50-watt halogen competitor which will consume $300 worth of power over the same lifetime.”

VIBE says the savings in running costs and the long life of the 7w LED MR16, mean the average Australian household with around 50 downlights can save almost $13,000 off their power bill by switching to LED interior lighting
(based on all lamps running to their full 40,000hrs lamp life).

And this is before any expected rises in power prices are introduced which will only widen the gap, he said.

He said heavy-use commercial customers such as hotels and retailers were jumping at the latest in VIBE LED lighting technology because of its 40,000 hour lamp life and much lower running costs.

“ They can see the payback period for the initial outlay is relatively short due to much cheaper running costs. After that it’s all positive for them including lower air-conditioning costs as LED lighting runs much cooler and emits up to 90% less heat than halogen lighting.”

” The major users are also reporting a major reduction in maintenance costs and time spent replacing lights which with the old technology meant replacing blown lamps was almost a daily task,” he said.

Check these LED facts:
Operating Life
• LED MR 16 operating life: 40,000 hours (4.5 years)
• 50-watt fluoro halogen operating life: 4000 hours (5.5 months)
• LED last almost 10 times longer

Running Costs
• Cost per kwh (LED): 40,000 hours X 7 watt X 0.15c = $42
• Cost per kwh (halogen): 4000hours X 50 watt halogen X 0.15c = $300
• Power savings per life of LED lamp: $258
• Average number of downlights in a domestic dwelling: 50 X $258 = $12,900
(power saving per house)
• LED is 85% cheaper to run

Emissions
• 13-watt LED emits 68% less CO2 than a 40-watt incandescent bulb on 10 hours per day
