Residential Lighting Solutions
The Saver Group offers all South Australian households the fantastic opportunity to replace your inefficient Halogen downlights with high quality energy efficient LED downlights. Plus supply and installation by qualified electricians, the LED kit refers to the replacement of halogen lamps; supplied with new compatible transformer and housing.  

LED lamp and driver kits start from only $13.00 each fully installed.  Minimum 20 required per residence.

LED's are the most efficient form of lighting, they use up to 80% less energy to produce the same amount of light and they also cost you less to run. This means that you’ll change them less often and save money on your annual energy bill. One of the main reasons they are so efficient is that most of their energy is used to solely create light, rather than creating light and heat, which is what less efficient forms of lighting do.
