LED Downlight Installation on the Gold Coast
Pay less and stay safer with LED downlights on the Gold Coast
Downlights are an excellent way to light a room, with a huge range of styles and options from spotlights to diffuse, ambient lighting. Traditional halogen bulb downlights use high amounts of energy and give off a large amount of heat. If installed incorrectly these lights can even increase the risk of a fire. With LED downlights installation from Newman Electrical Co. you can save money on your bills by using more energy efficient LED downlights. LEDs run much cooler than incandescent bulbs, save you a significant amount of electricity and do not need periodic replacing. We can help you choose the right LED downlights to bring your vision alive while ensuring you get only the highest quality lights and light fixtures.

If you are curious to know what our electricians will do when they install your new LED downlights, this is a short summary of the process. The first step, which is also the most important one, is deciding on the positioning of the lights. You are welcome to get involved in this process, or trust our experienced and practised team to ideally space and position them so that you have uniform lighting throughout the room as well as direct overhead illumination for key areas.
After marking out the locations and checking that no beams or wires are in the way, we will prepare the area to fit either recessed or surface-mounted downlights, according to your specification.
We then safely wire the new lights, insert them and firmly attach them in place. After the final checks, our residential electricians will also clean up the area before leaving as part of our complete and respectful service.
In Australia, it is illegal to install downlights yourself. Only licensed electricians are allowed to wire the lighting in your home — as improperly installed downlights are a major fire hazard. By entrusting Newman Electrical Co. with your LED downlight installation, you have access to over 20 years of experience and practice. That means you can be confident in the knowledge that a trained expert has checked that everything meets safety standards so you can enjoy an effortless and top-notch LED downlight installation.
While taking care of the LED downlights installation can be a tempting thought to save money, it is not only highly discouraged but also illegal in Australia. After several tragic cases of house fires, the national government has tightened restrictions — making it compulsory to hire a licenced electrician to install downlights. This is not just to guarantee the wiring is safe and meets regulations, but also because electricians have the technical knowledge to assess the LED lights before they are installed to ensure that they are not visibly faulty.
The exact cost of getting downlights installed in your Gold Coast home depends on several factors such as whether you are replacing existing ones or installing new lights, where in the house they are going to be installed, if they are recessed or surface mounted, etc. At Newman Electrical Co., we offer very competitive prices on our LED downlight installation service — contact us online today or call us on 0408 761 459 for a free quote.
