Customer Reviews

I’m a pretty busy woman and was worried I would never have the time to take advantage of the free installation. When the technician came (Chad), he was in and out of there within half an hour! Amazing service and I’m glad I signed up.

Why are they free?
The Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET), also known as the Victorian Government’s Energy Saver Incentive scheme promotes energy efficiency usage among households and businesses in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and costly expenses. Watts Green has operated since 2008 and participates in this plan by producing VEECs: Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates, when replacing your energy wasting halogen downlights with certified energy saving LED downlights. We sell these VEECs to energy retailers, and this act reimburses your free LED downlight installation, so that you don’t have to pay a cent!* All you have to do is give us your signature on our VEEC assignment form after your upgrade, in order for us to generate the VEECs.
Watts Up? Is this completely free?
Your free LED downlights installation includes:
  • Booking an appointment with our certified electricians in accordance to your schedule
  • Removal of your halogen downlights
  • Supplying and installing our high quality MR16 (12V) LED downlights
Please note that we are only able to install LED downlights for free if we are replacing MR16 (GU5.3) halogen downlights, and that a non-refundable fee of $80.00/booking will be charged for a MR16/12V lighting installation when there are less than 10 halogen downlights to be replaced. This call out fee will also be applied if you do not have the existing MR16 halogen downlight to be replaced. We encourage you to double check that you have this specific halogen globe.
Which neighborhoods do you support?
Presently our technicians service the Geelong and Greater Melbourne areas and we are continuously increasing our area of service in order to benefit Victorians statewide. If you don’t live within this area, we will happily save your information on our waiting list so we can contact you once we have a technician to service your area.
What Are The Led Specifications That You Are Replacing My Existing Halogen Globes With?
6W – Compatible with the 35W halogen globes warm white, 440 lumens, 3000K (warm white), 60° beam angle
7W - Compatible with the 50W halogen globes warm white, 500 lumens, 3000K (warm white), 60° beam angle
Do the LED lights use a dimmer?
The MR16 (12V) downlight that is provided with your free installation service is not compatible with a dimmer. We verify that our customers either
  1. Don’t already have dimmer switches
  2. Don’t plan on using dimmers with our downlights before upgrading to LED downlights.
However, we offer various options for maintaining the use of the dimmable globe:
  1. MR16 dimmable replacement globe only.
  2. A dimmable GU10 replacement globe only.
  3. MR16 dimmable replacement globe with new transformer.
These 3 options are available at a reasonable cost. Contact our team at Watts Green for a free consultation, and we’ll be happy to guide you through the best option that works for you!

What is the life span of LED downlights?
Your free LED downlights will last an incredibly long time, 45,000 hours* worth of time! Halogen lights, in comparison, will die within 2,000 hours, which is the rough equivalent of 12-15 months. That means no more having to search for a tall ladder every couple of months!
Can you explain the difference between GU10 (240V) LED downlights and MR16 (12V) LEDs?
Our free LED downlights installation includes MR16 (12V) LED downlights, which correspond with most ceiling transformers and require only the replacement of your light bulb. We also have premium quality, super affordable GU10 (240V) LED downlights that include a dimmable capacity, which work on mains voltage. This allows our technician to wholly remove your old ceiling transformers during the replacement of your downlights.
Who performs the LED lights installation?
Watts Green uses officially licensed, professional electricians to perform the LED downlights installation, providing only the best (and speedy) service experience for our wonderful customers.
Do all the lights have to be replaced at once?
In each appointment, Watts Green services will need to replace a minimum of 10 downlights. A non-refundable service fee of $80.00 will be applied if there are less than 10 downlights to be replaced. We highly suggest that you replace all the lights in every room simultaneously, so that you won’t have a mix of LED and halogen downlights in the same room. After all, why not make the most of this limited-time offer, and take advantage of a 100% free installation of LED downlights?
I want to keep the halogen downlights that you take down. Is that okay?
In compliance with the Victorian Government’s Energy Saver Incentive scheme, Watts Green will make sure all removed transformers and halogen lamps get decommissioned. We ensure that after installing our LED downlights, all previous halogen downlights and transformers are recycled responsibly in an effort to protect the environment.
I want to use my personal electrician. Is that okay?
Watts Green meticulously employs, trains, and directs qualified, experienced technicians to perform the LED downlight installation. Our expert electricians ensure the highest professional standards, dedicated workmanship and pleasant customer service. Your 100% free LED installation service is conducted exclusively by our certified specialists.
Do I need to change over the transformers?
Many people believe that their transformers require to be changed over at the same time of changing over the LEDs. 95% of the time, the existing transformer you have will be compatible with our LEDs and therefore the need to change over your transformers will not be required. However when our qualified electrician is on site, he will make an assessment of your existing transformers and advise you before any work is done if they need to be changed over. Should you wish to proceed our electrician will provide you a quote for changing over your transformers. If you don’t wish to proceed, that’s fine and our electrician will leave with no charge what so ever.
My transformers are incompatible. What happens now?
When our Watts Green electrician visits you and discovers your transformers are not compatible with our LED downlights, you will not be charged any fees. However, a free lighting installation may not be possible. Our technician will go over this with you, and you can also call a Watts Green consultant to explore your options at 1300 566 319.
How do I know if my downlights can be replaced?
Watts Green consultants are ready to help you! We will assess whether your existing downlights are suitable for a free replacement in accordance with the Victorian Energy Saver Incentive scheme over the phone, or while booking your appointment. Give us a call at 1300 566 319, or message us through our contact form and we will call you back promptly to discuss whether your current lights are suitable for a 100% free replacement of LED downlights. Watts Green is proud to be LEDing the way to a brighter future, thanks to the Victorian Government’s Energy Saver Incentive.
Are The Replacement LED Globes Safe?
Yes, the LED globes operate at low voltage so they are cool to touch and much safer to handle. Halogen globes, however, are quite hot to touch and can reach temperatures as high as 500°. The filaments in halogen lights rise up to 2,500°C, and the bulb up to 500°C. The temperature at which paper will ignite without a spark or flame is 230°C, so if there is any insulation touching the light fitting a fire can easily start.
What Are The Benefits Of LED Lighting?
LED Lights are energy efficient, cost effective, durable and more. They are the latest technology in lighting and offer a great alternative in replacing your current halogen lights. Below is a list of some of the many benefits of LED Lighting.
  • Energy Efficient:
 A standard 50W halogen lamp turns 90% of electricity used into heat with only 10% into light. The benefit of LED Lights are that they use only 15% of the energy a standard halogen uses, provide up to 85% of the light output and create less heat, making them cool and safe to touch. This makes LED Lights not only energy efficient but extremely cost effective as air conditioning use can be lowered.
  • Long Life Span:
 LED Lights have the benefit of a super long life span of up to 45,000 hours, which means you can cut maintenance costs as the lamps last up to 8-10 times longer than standard halogen lamps - making them an ideal replacement.

  • Improved Durability:
 LED's have no filaments, so they can withstand a greater intensity of vibration and shock than standard lights, making them durable with less risk of breaking and replacing.
  • Safety:
 Most LED lights operate at low voltage so are cool to touch and much safer to handle during installation and maintenance.

  • Environmentally Friendly:
 The benefit of LED Lights is that they are an eco-friendly form of lighting as they do not contain mercury or other harmful gasses, or emit any harmful UV rays.
