FAQ

Q:Do I have to replace LEDs?
A:An LED does not burn out like a standard lamp, so individual diodes do not need to be replaced. Instead, the diodes gradually produce lower output levels over a very long period of time. If one LED fails, it does not produce a complete fixture outage.

Q:Where can LEDs be used?
A:Lighting Matters can supply LED lighting for the following applications: Residential applications:
- decorative lights
- pendant lights
- under or inside cabinets
- kitchen splash back lighting
- recessed lighting
- feature wall lighting 
- bedroom
- bathroom
- home theatre / media room
- entertainment area
- patio / garden Architectural/Commercial:
- interior and exterior special effect lighting (eg. Hotel, restaurant, casino, water feature, landmark)
- landscape lighting for gardens, parks, pools and spas
- wall washers
- strip lighting
- accent lighting
- cove lighting 
- small spot lighting
- path lights
- in-ground and underwater lights Industrial:
- flood Lighting
- high or low bay replacement
- task lighting
- street lighting Retail display:
- refrigerated display case lighting
- general merchandise lighting, eg. creating effects and moods based on warm/cold colours
- display case lighting Entertainment:
- concerts feature effect lighting
- concert hall and theatre lighting
- tv studios, stage lighting
- bars, clubs and restaurant Safety and security:

Q:Why do LED lights look different?
A:The technology behind LED lights is fundamentally different from more traditional bulbs. LED's have fins and vents to keep the bulb running cool.

Q:Why are LEDs considered a GREEN technology?
A:LEDs are environmentally friendly on many fronts. First, unlike HID (High Intensity Discharge) lamps LEDs contain NO mercury. In addition, some LED luminaires are RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant and have been designed to provide more than a decade of near maintenance-free service. That means no re-lamping which means no waste. Assuming an HID fixture is re-lamped every two years, that’s five re-lamping cycles over a 10 year period. Just imagine the benefits of choosing LED: • No concern over proper disposal (hopefully not simply thrown in a landfill) of old HID lamps containing harmful mercury. • No fuel used and the accompanying pollution to service those fixtures. • Greatly reduced potential for lane closures and other productivity and inconvenience-related costs associated with maintaining an HID system. • No natural resources lost to produce the replacement lamps that contain mercury. • No fuel used to move old-technology lamps from the factory (most likely overseas), to the distributor, to the contractor, to the job site. It’s important to keep in mind all the positive and powerful ripple effects that using LED technology can have on the environment.

Q:Can I use a CFL or an LED with a dimmer switch?
A: In order for a CFLor LED to work on a dimmer switch you must purchase a CFLor LED that is made to work with dimmers.. Not all dimmable CFLs and LED are equal, the bulb’s packaging should indicate how well the bulb dims and if it requires a special type of dimmer to function properly.

Q:What should I do if I break a CFL?
A:The EPA recommends that if a CFL breaks carefully sweep up all the fragments – wipe the area with a wet towel and dispose of all fragments, including the used towel, in a sealed plastic bag. Follow all disposal instructions. If possible open windows to allow the room to ventilate. Do NOT use a vacuum. Place all fragments in a sealed plastic bag and follow disposal instructions. You can find full instructions here: http://www.epa.gov/cfl/cflcleanup.html

Q:Can CFLs create interference with electronic equipment?
A:This product may cause interference with radios, cordless phones, televisions and remote controls. If interference occurs, move this product away from the device and plug into a different outlet.

Q:Can I use a CFL bulb in an enclosed light fixture?
A:Yes, you can use a CFLs that are 23 watts or below in a fully enclosed fixture.

Q:What wattage should I buy?
A:When buying a compact fluorescent light bulb, choose a wattage that's about one-fourth of what you usually buy. The table below shows some typical wattage conversions for CFLs: • 15-watt incandescent = 3-watt compact fluorescent • 40-watt incandescent = 9-watt compact fluorescent • 60-watt incandescent = 13-watt compact fluorescent • 75-watt incandescent = 18-watt compact fluorescent • 100-watt incandescent = 23-watt compact fluorescent • 120-watt incandescent = 30-watt compact fluorescent
