LED Replacement Lamps for Home

    • Energy saving on a new level
    • Instant light
    • Long life

Why LED?

LED solutions are receiving global recognition for their energy saving capabilities, long service life and the ability to reduce carbon emissions across a host of different sectors. LED solutions will play a pivotal role in the future of lighting. However, when it comes to selection, how can you be sure that one system is better than another? After all, every company will tell you that theirs, understandably, is the best. GE Lighting LEDs come from a lighting heritage that is, quite simply, unsurpassed. The company introduced LED technology to the world with the patent for the first practical, commercialised LED for indication applications in 1962. GE Lighting continues to develop high quality LED solutions and who better to rely on than those who invented the technology and developed it into the global phenomenon we see now.


Range description

GE Ligting helps you to bring your home to life with interior lighting, which can give form and texture to a room, warm a dark corner, highlight a favorite piece of art, or create just the right mood. GE LED Retrofit lamps can be used everywhere at your home, from general lighting to mood lighting and spotlighting. Their big advantage is that, with the same lamp caps that are found on conventional lamps they are a simple, like-for-like, replacement for old technology. There is no need to change fittings - just the lamps. The LED retrofit lamps of GE have the aesthetic and practical qualities of conventional lamps, as well as being very economical and environmentally friendly. They are mercury free, use far less energy than halogen or incandescent, and last longer.

The three layers of home lighting

General lighting or ambient lighting is the base of home lighting. There is two types of general lighting. It can be natural light, coming from the windows, from the ambient. The second type of ambient lighting is the lighting that substitutes the natural light.  This first layer is the base of the other two layers of home lighting. The second layer of home lighting is  task lighting. This layer provides lighting for specific activities, like studying, reading or make-uping. Of course, task lighting always has to fit to the nature of the specific activity. Therefore task lighting should be different at the bathroom, at the kitchen, in the bedroom, etc. The third layer of home lighting is accent lighting.  Accent lighting can highlight paintings, statues or any important object or architectural features in the home. The other function of accent lighting is to draw away the attention from things we want to overshadow. Accent lighting is a very effective tool for home decoration.
