LED Surface Mount Downlight

If you’re looking for an easy-to-install, low-maintenance, energy-efficient lighting solution, you should definitely consider going the LED surface mount downlight route. And if you’re looking for quality surface downlights, we’ve got a great selection here at Best Buy Lighting, Australia's leading online store for designer lighting, smart lights and fans. 

What are LED surface mount downlight fixtures anyway?

As the name suggests, LED surface mount downlight fixtures are a kind of lighting solution mounted on a surface, which in this case is a ceiling. They are typically used for:

  • General lighting
  • Accent lighting
  • Task lighting
  • Decorative lighting

They also come in a wide variety of styles and colours, each one designed for a specific application. For general lighting, for example, an oyster light would be a good, low-profile option. For task lighting, on the other hand, a rotatable model with a more focused beam would be the better choice.

Surface downlights — a great option for every space

The great thing about surface downlights being available in a wide variety of styles is that it makes them great for virtually every part of your home or commercial space. They’re a great low-profile lighting option regardless of the overall look you’re going for.

Of course, they go well with virtually any other type of light fixture too. Whether you have ultra-classy pendants and chandeliers at home or other low-profile LED downlights, you’ll surely find the perfect LED surface mount downlight to match.

The many benefits of using surface mount LED downlight fixtures

There are a lot of benefits to using surface mount LED downlights, which include:

  • Efficiency — Surface downlights cost significantly less to operate than traditional options like halogen or incandescent lighting, thanks to LED requiring up to 70% less electricity to run.
  • Durability — They cost significantly less to maintain, thanks to them being more durable and longer-lasting than traditional alternatives.
  • Versatility — Whether you’re looking for general, accent or task lighting, surface downlights can get the job done.
  • Aesthetics — With a wealth of styles, colours and form factors to choose from, you’ll surely find the perfect option for virtually every part of your home or commercial space.

Surface mounted downlights — LED versus halogen

While halogen is arguably as popular as LED lighting, when it comes to surface mounted downlights, LED is better for virtually all applications. In fact, LED lights are so good that even chandeliers of all shapes and sizes are now using them.

LED surface downlights are more energy-efficient and cost-effective than their halogen counterparts. But that’s not all. They also produce less heat, so have a significantly lower risk of causing injuries.

In addition, since they last longer than halogen bulbs, they cost significantly less in the long run. They also help reduce your overall carbon footprint since you don’t have to replace them as often.

Here are some other ways LED surface downlights beat halogen alternatives:

  1. Dimmability — While certain models of both LED and halogen bulbs can have dimming capabilities on paper, the latter becomes less energy efficient when dimmed. In addition, the dimming range of halogen bulbs is smaller than their LED counterparts.
  2. Versatility — LED surface mount downlight fixtures are also significantly more versatile than halogen ones. They not only come in a wider range of shapes and sizes, but they’re also available in different finishes and beam angles. Simply put, whatever your requirements may be, you’re sure to find the right LED surface mount downlight for it.
  3. Aesthetics — They also look more modern and aesthetically pleasing, providing you with glare-free lighting without disrupting the overall look of your space. And with different colours and beam angles to choose from, they also allow you to set the exact mood you want for each section of your home or commercial space.
  4. Safety — LED surface mount downlights are also typically free from harmful components and substances like lead and mercury, making them safer to use both in residential and commercial applications.
  5. Environmental impact — Since LED bulbs consume less energy and need to be replaced less frequently than their halogen counterparts, they also effectively produce less carbon emissions and waste. This means if you’re looking for a more sustainable way to light your home or commercial space, LED surface downlights are the perfect solution for you.

At the end of the day, however you look at it, LED surface downlights are just the preferable choice overall. They outperform their halogen counterparts in virtually every aspect that matters in lighting up your home or commercial space.
