LED Lightbulb Myths Debunked
18th May 20
LED products are steadily replacing traditional lighting arrangements, and for good reason.
Not only do traditional “incandescent” lightbulbs have a much shorter lifespan, they also use excessive amounts of energy and cost a lot more money to buy in the long run. LED lightbulbs are a far superior and more environmentally friendly alternative that can easily be installed in residential and commercial properties alike.
Did you know that a traditional light bulb is like an electric heater? When switched on it will produce heat and only 10% of that energy is actually turned into light!
Shocking but true. LED lights, on the other hand, don’t need to produce heat to emit light. This means that almost all of the energy used by an LED product will be converted to light. We strongly recommend that everyone consider upgrading to LED lighting as it is one of the most efficient ways to save money on your energy bills and contribute towards greener world.
LEDs’ longer lifespans and lower energy use, coupled with cheaper purchasing prices due to mass market demand, make them an all-round more affordable option compared to alternative lighting. In fact, a correctly tailored LED lighting upgrade by Griff Services Ltd can save you up to 90% on your energy bill. This means your money back in under a year!
Your questions answered.
How Long do LED Lights Last? – A good LED will come with at least a 5-year warranty. We have installed commercial products with a full 10 years cover!
How Much Energy Do LED Lights Use? – As mentioned before, LEDs are much more efficient than other lighting systems due to the fact that 80-90% of the energy an LED product produces is converted into light.
Do LED Lights Get Hot? – Unlike a traditional halogen lamp, which will reach temperatures of 300 degrees Celsius, LED lights use so little heat that they remain safe to the touch after several hours of use. We can safely install these lights in densely insulated attics without any worry of causing fire.
Do LED Lights Need to “Warm Up”? – No, LED lights offer full brightness from the moment they are switched on. Great if you have low volume traffic areas and don’t need light at all times.

Mike and Joanne has an in-depth knowledge of products and applications required for each job. We as his electrical supplier can only recommend any potential works his way with the upmost faith the project will be satisfied completely. Good luck in the future.
Griff Services did a great job for me. They arranged for the installation of the EV charging point at short notice and provided update and reminder text messages prior to the job. On the morning of the install they also notified me of the installer Tom's ETA. Tom did a great and tidy job and was extremely pleasant to deal with. Overall I would highly recommend them for future work. Thank you
We were really impressed by the professionalism of Griff Services and would recommend them in the future. The work was undertaken well and we had positive comments regarding the corporate identity of Michael and his co-worker and the company vehicle.
We needed to replace solar panels inverter and Griff Services quoted a very sensible price. They were able to do the installation only a few days later. It was all done in a day, with no disruption and a great deal of efficiency and courtesy. We were exceedingly impressed by Michael’s conscientious approach, both to the original discussions and the planning process, and also to the execution of the job. He was a pleasure to meet and to have around the place. Thank you, Michael.
The EV charging point install was very tidy and efficient. Happy to recommend Griff Services in future.
Along with the big contracts I know you usually work on the professionalism and quality of work you provided for me on a one off job was truly outstanding. I have had many previous encounters with tradespeople who are late (or never show up) and only do half a job, and ask for more money than originally quoted. To my relief Griff Services have been an absolute pleasure to do business with and I have recommended their services to my colleagues, family, and friends who are in the Construction trade.
