Replacing Florescent Kitchen Lighting with LEDs
It's time to replace your fluorescent kitchen lighting with an LED alternative. LED alternatives offer a light that is just as broad, with shadow-free light distribution, low running costs, and a long life with no irritating flicker.
Historically, the de facto way of lighting a kitchen was to use a fluorescent lighting strip. These were energy efficient, and quick to install because only one or two fixtures were required. Often the housebuilder would use a Pop Pack, or a similar budget product. Unfortunately for the home owner the laws of supply and demand dictated that quality was compromised to achieve the low-cost and high-return desired by housebuilders. The net result means you may have a kitchen fluorescent light with Halophosphor tubes operated on an inefficient ballast with a glow starter.
It is obvious why many users discount fluorescent lights as they are associated with poor quality light with an unattractive ceiling fixture. So, how have things changed? Modern fluorescent kitchen lights use triphosphor lamps (which give a better quality of light) operated by high-frequency control gear. This means no popping or flicker from the lamp, a longer operating life, and a smaller slimline design. Simply put, kitchen fluorescent lights are not what they were. That's why now is the time to take a look at our range of LED alternatives below.
