LED Spotlights – What you need to know
LED spotlights are modern, versatile, and very easy to replace, and it’s because of this that demand has risen significantly over the last few years.
Other benefits of LED spotlights are the colour and beam angle.
The wider beam angles and warmer colours are superb for ambient lighting, and the cooler colours and narrower angles are really great for focusing in on specific parts or areas of a room.

LED myth busting
Amongst all the positives there’s still a few myths around LED lighting. The main ones concern cost, brightness and difficulty of installation – with the argument that they’re too expensive, the brightness doesn’t always last as long as it should, and that they’re a nightmare to install.
This is inaccurate because the average cost of a 60W-equivalent LED bulb is dropping, and LED light bulbs usually last a lot longer than the halogen alternative.
With regards to brightness, they use 80% of their energy as light, with the other 20% escaping as heat, and yes, in 2021, depending on what LED you buy, it will generally be lighter than a halogen bulb.
When it comes to fitting, the good news here is that most of our LED light bulbs are retro-fit and should slot in easily into the existing fittings
So there you have it. If you want a full breakdown about some of the other myths then head over to our dedicated LED Lighting Myths page here.
