    Light Foot LED specialise in LED equivalents (i.e. replacement bulbs/tubes/floodlights etc) helping companies save huge amounts on their ever increasing energy bills. Our LED lights have considerably lower yearly running costs compared to conventional lights, and the power consumption (wattage) is much lower. Furthermore our LED lights also have a much longer life (50,000 hours on average, or 14 years on average at a use of 70 hours/pw) which means less expense on both the unit cost of replacement and any maintenance costs.


    Why Choose LED Lighting?

    Energy Saving – LED light could save up to 70% energy than normal lighting
    Low Heat
    Low Power Consumption
    Green – all our products are made from recyclable materials
    Long Life – 50,000 hours
    Less Maintenance
    Easy Installation
    CE/ROHS/FCC/UL approved and certified

    After reading all the reviews here I'm seriously thinking of applying LEDs to my home as well but I have one question would it require all new installations? I mean I have energy saver bulbs in my home right now would I have to replace all the bulb holders because of these LEDs?

    You can retrofit LED lights which means that you will not have to change any fittings or fixtures.

    The present state of led bulbs is as follows:

    They can be fitted to normal bulb holders (i.e. retrofitted) as has been said, so you would not have to replace the fittings.
    They have considerable advantages over both old incandescents and halogens, and compact fluorescent low energy bulbs.
    At present they tend to be less bright than the above unless you want to pay a lot for them, say £20+, but they last about 20 years with average use and their running costs are very low. They will however pay for themselves over the lifetime of the bulb.
    Because of their low power consumption, torches, etc have much longer battery life and the bulbs (in theory) never need replacing and anyone who buys a torch that is not LED is mad.

    [FONT=arial,helvetica,clean,sans-serif]I am interested in looking at the potential for use of led lighting as part of lighting improvements to an interior space. In addition to led lighting manufacturers on the internet, what are the best sources for technical information?[/FONT]

    Its time to replace eight 12v MR16 bulbs. Looked at 9W(3 leds x 3w) Cree led bulbs - £18 per bulb.... Bought 8 OSRAM normal ones for £8. Until LED`s come down in price, sorry.

    You can now use them for growing the old weed, they have come on leaps and bounds.

    Weed has so many wonderful uses its reallly barbaric that its illegal but hey ho it would put the Pharmas out of business and they are not going to let that happen, Its cured so many people of devasting illnesses and its a major threat to them....

    LEDs are now becoming contenders to tungsten - well at least in professional fixtures anyway - at a cost. At least 5 time the price. I've given up using the commonly available GU50 types - a horrible white, and dim! I can buy tungsten for quite low prices, but LEDs cost too much, act like glow worms and produce very odd colours on fabics due to the non-continuous spectrum. CFLs take too long to warm up, and are dim too, and very few of these energy saving lamps can be dimmed!

    They could be an inferior product - thats just my tuppence worth.

    I would take them back and get a replacement and a little something for the time, effort and energy that it will and has taken to actually do this.

    Totally agree - but so are electric cars, and very few people buy them because of performance limitations and personal choice.

    Performance limitations you say? Some of them are faster than Ferrari :)

    Problem is batteries - they don`t last long and it takes too long to charge them.

    These lights are best in terms of lighting and less energy consumption.. I have just replaced all my home lights with new leds.. I feel proud after making right decision

    That is complete nonsense!
    Best? Energy consumption is certain very good, but on the LED units that come close to the light output, the consumption goes up to close to the tungsten you have replaced. The cost of course is many times higher for LED fixtures. The damn things are, as I explained, quite unreliable, and dimmer capability excludes using cheaper ones which can explode rather noisily if you accidentally swap a dimmer one for a non-dim one - which my wife can attest to after swapping one. There is NO standard for quality of light. Both colour rendition and beam angle are quite different to tungsten. If you have photographs or paintings, illuminating them with LED is horrible!

    Lifespan, as mentioned by others doesn't remotely hit the stupid life predictions (which are produced with maths, not reality).

    I actually like the colour ones, but NOT colour changers that have in-built electronics, because the proof of ageing is evident after just a few months of use - when new, they change at the same time, but a year later, will be a mess! You cannot replace LEDs with identical ones just a few months apart. Ceiling downlighters are the main culprit. Swap one that fails in 6 months and it stands out a mile. A different white and probably brighter - meaning that you have to replace ALL of them if you wish to remain even.

    They are great products - I do actually like them for certain things, but the technology is developing so rapidly, a product shelf life is often 1 month. By then, the factory is using a different batch of LEDs. A 40W old fashioned light bulb could be replaced with no thought as to if the new one would match, and an 40W replacement looked the same 10 years later! You just cannot do this with LED. The 20 ceiling downlighters in my lounge now cost me just 50p if they fail, and I think I'd estimate I've replaced maybe 6 in the last year. They cost me 5p an hour to run. The nearest brightness LEDs that are a direct (ha ha) replacement are currently just over £9 each - so a swapout cost of £180, and running costs about 1p an hour. That's an awful lot of hours to recover the swap cost, and long enough to mean replacements will be problematic.

    To be green means having deep pockets for an inferior product.
