    Default Down Lights

    Are the down lights very hot and high energy consumption?

    it really depends on the type of bulb used in the downlight. if it's hydrogen light or spot light, they'll be very hot after awhile and consume lots of energy. but if you use those energy saving ones, they will not emit so much heat and use less electricity, but it won't as bright as hydrogen ones, but good enough for normal room lighting purpose. Hydrogen ones more for wall paintings or showcase lighting. hope this helps.

    Yes, that is right duffy.

    Energy saving is the way to go.... it is frustating to have down lights in halogen bulbs, they keep blowing and you have to keep changing the bulbs.

    Worse of all they are so hot ..... and it is not too good for the eyes too.

    Energy saving - go for the warm white it makes the house as cosy , comfortable for the eyes, conserve energy and also long lasting bulbs.

    LED Lighting are lights which use light emitting diodes which are extremely energy efficient and long lasting. LED lights create less heat than traditional lights, which means they last for longer and it means your air conditioner doesn't have to work as hard. LED lights are a relatively new technology and can help you save up to 90% on your lighting cost. So basically down lights are energy saving LED lights

    LED lights are really really good actually. thier lifetimes can exceed 100,000 hours, as compared to 1,000 hours for tungsten bulbs

    However, LED MR16 bulbs are the most energy saving option and the level of light is now roughly comparable to a halogen bulb.
