LED CFL Replacements

Compact Fluorescent light bulbs have long been considered a more energy-efficient option compared to incandescent light bulbs. However, with the advancement of LED technology, it is now clear that LED light bulbs are even more energy-saving. When it comes to replacing compact fluorescent bulbs with LED ones, the choices are now greater, making the retrofit process relatively simpler. These LED light bulbs are perfect for a variety of settings, including commercial fixtures, bulkheads, downlights, and retail units.

If the lamp cap base remains the same, you can easily replace CFLs with LED light bulbs. It is crucial to match the same cap with the equivalent wattage, as the fitting is specifically manufactured for that specification. It is important to note that attempting to go for a lower wattage than the fixture specified may result in the bulb not fitting or eventually malfunctioning.

One of the great advantages of using LED replacement bulbs for CFLs is the wide range of colour choices available. You can opt for a cool white (4000K) for meeting rooms or areas where focus and concentration are important or choose a warm white (3000K) to create a cosy and relaxing ambience.

Different manufacturers may have different names for their products, but as long as the shape and base cap remain the same, and the CFL wattage is matched, the LED replacement will work perfectly. At Lightsave Home, we have made it easier for you to identify the right bulb by including the equivalent wattage in the product title.

Some traditional lamps, such as Dulux lamps or Biax lamps, have LED replacements available. However, it is important to note that these LED replacements are not currently suitable for use as emergency lighting and are also not dimmable.

Why Make the Switch from CFL to LED?

Welcome to the future of lighting! If you are currently utilising CFL light bulbs, it is highly recommended that you consider upgrading to LED and embrace a world that is not only brighter but also more energy efficient. Allow us to present to you some compelling reasons why making this switch is advantageous.

Energy Efficiency

LED bulbs are renowned for their energy efficiency. They consume significantly less power than CFLs, leading to lower electricity bills. Make the environmentally conscious choice without compromising on brightness.


Say goodbye to frequent bulb replacements. LED bulbs have an impressively long lifespan, lasting up to 25,000 hours or more. Experience reduced maintenance costs and fewer trips to the store.

Instant Illumination

Unlike CFLs which may take a moment to reach full brightness, LED bulbs provide instant, flicker-free illumination. Enjoy the perfect lighting from the moment you flip the switch.

Environmentally Friendly

LEDs are free from harmful materials like mercury, which is present in CFLs. Choosing LED contributes to a cleaner environment, and the bulbs are fully recyclable.

Customisable Lighting

LED technology allows for a wide range of colour temperatures and dimming options, giving you control over the ambience of your space. Create the perfect atmosphere for any occasion.
