Are your lights overheating? Did you know they could actually be a fire hazard? Have you considered changing to L.E.D 💡 Transformers are an important component in the installation of downlights. Downlights are a type of lighting fixture that are recessed into the ceiling, and they typically require a low voltage power source to function. Transformers are used to convert the high voltage electricity from the building’s electrical system into a low voltage that is suitable for use with downlights. They are located in your ceiling and can quickly become a fire hazard if they malfunction. Let us change you over to LED lighting for a more modern and safer alternative.
LED Ceiling Lights
LED lighting is a more energy-efficient and long-lasting option for illuminating roofs compared to traditional downlights with transformers. These lights use less electricity and have a longer lifespan This reduces the need for frequent replacements and maintenance. Additionally, LED lights produce less heat and are more versatile in terms of brightness and color options, making them a better choice for roof lighting.
These are transformers which could have easily caught on fire. We recently removed these transformers from a roof. They were buried under insulation and were a fire hazard.
It’s always a good idea to have your transformers checked by a Level 2 Technician. We always suggest getting them checked to ensure they comply to fire safety regulations. Also worth noting, if your lights are flickering, then you may have a fire hazard and this will also need to be checked.
Common downlights are connected to transformers and the transformers are located in your ceiling. We can offer you an alternative to downlights which are safer and more energy efficient. Give the office a call if you are concerned about your downlights.
