Why do I need to replace my dimmer switch?

Why do I need to replace my dimmer switch?

The minimum wattage figure on the dimmer switch is too high, typically the majority of leading edge dimmer switches are 60 watts which is way too high for operation with dimmable LED bulbs. This is why you need an LED compatible dimmer switch for use with dimmable LED bulbs.

Are LED lights cost-effective?

Are LED lights cost-effective?

LED light bulbs are highly energy efficient; resulting is significant electricity savings over the life of the bulb. Electricity costs are constantly on the increase. The average household lighting bill in the UK is around £300 per year. Replace your existing halogen bulbs with LED bulbs and you can cut your lighting costs by up to 90%. That is a potential saving of upto £270 a year.

What does IP65 mean?

What does IP65 mean?

The IP, or Ingress Protection rating of an electrical product is a guide that is used to detail the strength of the enclosure that surrounds the electrical components.
In the case of LED lights bulbs, the IP-rating measures the tolerance to the effect of dust particles and the level of protection against water or liquids. IP65 means that the LED bulb is totally protected against dust and can withstand low-pressure jets of water from all directions - with limited ingress acceptable.

Do I need to replace my fittings to use LED bulbs?

Do I need to replace my fittings to use LED bulbs?

No. The majority of our LED bulbs are designed to be retrofit. This means that LED light bulbs are made to fit in existing light fittings but please check the product description prior to purchasing.

Can I use my existing dimmer switch?

Can I use my existing dimmer switch?

Unfortunately not, for standard household dimmers you need a trailing edge or low voltage LED dimmer switch.

About Us

About Us

At Low Energy Supermarket, we have the approach that reducing CO2 emissions and saving the planet doesn't mean becoming an ECO warrior, it just makes good money sense, with the added bonus of helping to control climate change and conserve energy.  
Using the energy saving products on this website and with a little investment, you will be amazed how much money saving can be done.

‘Spend a little now & start saving

Low Energy Supermarket has been established to provide a wide range of energy efficiency products on one site in order for you to upgrade either your domestic or commercial property.  In recent years the government has imposed energy performance certificates on sale or letting of property in a drive to create public awareness in energy efficiency in the hope their recommendations will be implemented to help reduce C02 emissions.  Energy improvements to you property can be of benefit on sale or letting by showing a good energy rating, but more importantly, investment in energy efficiency will significantly reduce your fuel bills which will otherwise carry on increasing as fossil fuels become less available.

We aim to provide low cost but good quality products for both commercial and domestic energy improvement applications.  For each product we will provide an indication of payback and typical cost savings.  The shorter the payback period, the quicker your energy saving investment is recouped through energy bill reduction.  Once your energy saving technology is repaid through your energy savings you can then enjoy much lower than average energy bills knowing you also have low carbon emissions protecting the environment.

Our range of ‘only energy saving products’ has now greatly improved and we have every intention of continued expansion.  We are also developing new energy saving products and continue working towards driving down the cost of carbon reduction.  We are strong believers that acceleration towards a low carbon economy should be implemented as quickly as possible to prevent further damage to Earth's climate.  We want to make quality energy saving technologies available to all at the best prices possible whilst allowing us to develop a wider range of energy saving products for you.

  • Breakage and vibration resistance
  • Life unaffected by rapid cycling
  • Instant switch on with no warm up time

What are SMDs?

What are SMDs?

SMDs or Surface Mounted Diodes are the new generation of LED lighting. Our SMDs range is three times brighter than the older LEDs and available in warm white only. LED bulbs with SMDs generate a high quality light the same colour as normal household bulbs

Are LED bulbs safe?

Are LED bulbs safe?

Yes! LED bulbs are referred to as solid state lighting technology and do not contain any harmful materials unlike certain other types of household lighting that contain toxic substances like mercury.

Do PIR's need a neutral?

Do PIR's need a neutral?

Most PIR's do require a neutral however we do have a non neutral 200w wall mounted PIR which can be found here

Why are LED lights considered a green technology?

Why are LED lights considered a green technology?

LED bulbs are the only truly eco-friendly lighting solution. Unlike traditional forms of lighting where the majority of the electrical energy is given off in the form of heat, LED bulbs operate at around 80% efficiency. This means that an LED bulb converts 80% of its electricity into light energy with very little given off as heat, compared to an incandescent bulb that only turns 20% of the electricity it uses into light energy.

Energy Saving Tips

What SMD chips are used?

What SMD chips are used?

Low Energy Supermarket only use the best quality SMD chips in our range of led bulbs ensuring the best quality of light, the highest levels of energy efficiency and reliability.

Do I need to swap my current transformers?

Do I need to swap my current transformers?

Yes, standard electronic transformers can cause certain types of LED bulbs to flicker, resulting in permanent long-term damage to the LED bulb itself. This problem is most evident in 12V MR16 LED bulbs where a standard transformer does not provide a smooth flow of current, causing flickering problems. You may only need a transformer if you are buying 12v bulbs all 240 bulbs do not require a transformer, 12v bulbs are MR16, G4 and MR11. To avoid damaging your new LED bulbs it is always best to use LED drivers/transformers.

What is an LED?

What is an LED?

A Light Emitting Diode (LED) is a device consisting of a semiconductor that emits light energy when an electrical current is passed through it. LEDs can be used for a wide range of lighting applications. It is predicted that LED lights are the future for energy-efficient home lighting.

Top 10 Water Saving Products

Top 10 Water Saving Products

 

Hippo toilet flush water saver

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

    The hippo is simply a bag which goes into the toilet cistern to save water every time you flush. Easy to fit, no tools required.


Water saving aerating shower

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

A water saving shower has an air intake at the base of the showerhead. It mixes air with the water to create a powerful shower effect, whilst using 20-30% less water. The air intake creates a back pressure to water passing through the showerhead, which in turn uses less water and less hot water energy. Our aerating showers can be combined with shower flow restrictors for further savings, especially in high water pressure areas.


Tap aerator flow restrictor

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

Many taps installed from new are generally free flowing which can use up to 4 times more water than necessary. For example, if you have a wash basin which is predominantly used for brushing teeth or washing hands, then it may not be necessary to have a high flow rate from your tap. We have a range of flow restricting aerators, which can reduce your water flow to as little as 2 litres per minute. Most people generally choose 4 or 6 litres per minute, which will generally reduce a standard tap flow down from around 9 or 10 litres per minute.


Shower stop valve

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

This little valve was initially created for motorhomes, caravans, and boats, but it can also be used around the home. Simply flick the switch to one side to cut off water flow to a shower.

These valves are really good for people that have hot and cold mixer taps to the shower fitting which needs to be balanced to get the right temperature. When a shower stop valve is fitted, you only need to adjust the hot and cold taps once to balance the water temperature each time you use the shower enabling you to turn the flow of water off without re-balancing.


Combisave

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

The Combisave valve can save you thousands of litres of water per year. It works by reducing water flow to the hot tap whilst the combination boiler is heating up. This can actually help the water come through to your hot tap a second or two faster, but it also can save the 10 to 15 L of cold water which is wasted before your hot water comes through. Combi save also enables the boiler hot water preheat to be turned off, which can save as much as £50 of gas per year, simply by changing a boiler setting.


Shower flow restrictor

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

In some cases it may be necessary to restrict the amount of water which comes out of your shower. This is often needed in high-pressure water areas, where it may even be uncomfortable underneath the shower if the pressure is too high. A simple restrictor can be screwed onto the end of the shower hose to reduce the amount of water used. Our pack can reduce water flow to 8 litres or 6 litres of water per minute. There is an option to change the small flow restrictor inside, no tools required.


Shower Timer

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

Shower timers are a quick and easy way to check you are not using more water and hot water energy than necessary. They also help to train you to enjoy your shower efficiently. It is actually possible to have a shower in as little as three minutes. The average shower time is around eight minutes. A four-minute shower timer can help you use half as much water and hot water heating energy every time you use the shower.


WC stop Toilet Flush Water Saver

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

This really simple device acts as a weight to immediately close the toilet flush valve on most two button flush toilets. The maybe many occasions where you simply need a quick rinse down of the toilet pan, where even a partial flush is more than necessary. With the WC stop, you hold your finger down on the toilet flush for a full flush, as soon as you release your finger from the flush button, the flush stops. Can reduce the water consumption in toilet by 50%


Garden Hose Pipe Watering Timer

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

If you are a garden lover or grow your own vegetables, you should consider purchasing a watering system timer to ensure that your water is not left on any longer than

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

Ecobug Extra Strong Urinal Caps can save up to 98% of the water we flush down the drain, these can save up to £300 a year on every urinal in your organisation. ecobug® Extra Strong Urinal Caps employ good bacteria, which outperform the bad bacteria that you know only too well… The cause of that horrible gents toilet smell. A bad smell is bad for business in every situation. Ecobug Caps actually eradicate the smell... They don’t just mask it with even nastier perfume.

Top 10 Heating Saving Products

Top 10 Heating Saving Products

Radflek Radiator Reflector Foil

    Radiator reflector Foil is very easy to fit behind your radiator. It is especially effective in properties where you may not have very good wall insulation. It works by reflecting heat from the radiator into the room and reduces the amount of heat from the back of the radiator that goes straight out through the wall. This in turn helps your room temperature to reach a comfortable level quicker, and in turn, should allow your heating thermostat to turn off earlier saving you money.


UMAX Energy Saving Heating Additive

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

This heating additive can be easily injected through the bleed valve of one of your radiators.

Simply turn off the valves on both sides to the bottom of the radiator, then this allows you to remove the whole of the nut at the top of the radiator, which holds the bleed screw in place

Inject UMAX into the radiator water, reassemble, and turn the valves back on. This heating additive will then circulate around your central heating system and enables a more effective heat transfer between the boiler and the water circulating around the system. Tests have shown that it can save 5 to 10% of your heating costs.


EPDM & foam draught proofing

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

Rubber EPDM draught proofing is a quick and easy way of sealing old leaky windows.

Draughty houses are especially hard to keep warm when it is very cold outside combined with windy conditions. Good draught proofing should be maintained throughout all window and door openings which can help to save 15% of your heating costs. Rubber draught proofing has much longer lifetimes. Cheaper foam draught proofing can also be used as a quick fix, however may only be effective for 12 to 18 months.


Bryseal Around Door Seal

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

You may wish to keep one room really warm within your house. Bryseal around door seal is great at getting a really good airtight seal around internal or external doors to keep really warm inside.


Door Bottom Brushes - draught proofing

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

The bottom of doors can be especially draughty, whether it be an internal or and external door. There is often a 5 mm gap left at the bottom of doors to ensure that they do not come in contact with the floor. This can allow unpleasant draughts. We have a wide range of door bottom brushes, in different colours, and with concealed screw fixings.


Chimney Sheep/ Balloon

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

Many houses, especially those built before the 1950’s may still have original fireplaces.

Many fireplaces have been sealed up over the years, but still, some houses prefer to keep open fireplaces with decorative open fires or real flame effect gas fires. It is very often the case that the fire is only used occasionally throughout the year, which means, all of the rest of the time you have a large draughty hole leading out through your roof. When your chimney is not in use, this will create a constant draw of warm air going up the chimney, which is effectively extracting your comfortably heated air up the chimney. This is known as a natural stack effect due to the nature of rising warm air. Fitting a Chimney Sheep or chimney balloon can solve this problem.


Double Glazing Film

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

This product has been around for years. Double glazing film acts as a quick fix to help give some insulation to very cold and draughty single glazing. There are still many properties which may be located in a conservation area, or perhaps listed, or maybe, you are in a rented property where your landlord is unwilling to upgrade. Double glazing film is very easy to apply without any tools, simply using the double sided sticky tape provided and a hairdryer to shrink the film into place so that it becomes completely transparent to the inside of your window.


ETRV’s Electronic thermostat radiator valves & wall thermostats

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

The vast majority of houses, where fitted with thermostatic radiator valves, have the wax filled expansion type thermostatic valves. Although these do generally work, they have limited accuracy, and are relatively slow to respond to temperature changes. You can now simply unscrew your old thermostatic radiator valves and screw-on one of our new digital electronic thermostat radiator valves (ETRV's). Not only do these accurately control your temperature with a quick response, but they are also programmable which means you can turn radiators on or off at different times of the day, so long as your main boiler program has the boiler firing at that time. In larger houses, these have potential to give 20% heating fuel savings.


pipe insulation

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

You may not think of pipe insulation as energy-saving. Pipe insulation is often used for frost/freezing protection, but it is also used to keep the heat inside pipes to ensure it is efficiently transferred to the location where it is needed


Garage Door Side and Bottom Seals, plus consider insulating

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

Garages are normally unheated, but this does not mean it doesn’t matter if the garage gets really cold. Sometimes, you may have refrigerators or freezers in the garage which do not like to be situated in a cold location which can occasionally cause them to stop working.

Your garage may also be attached to your house. If you do some insulating and draught proofing to your garage, this means that some of the heat escaping from your house will become trapped in your garage. This helps to keep the contents of your garage dryer, but it also helps your garage to act as a buffer between the external cold air and the interior of your house. It is a scientific fact that the rate of heat loss through a wall is proportional to the difference between the internal and external temperature. If it is warmer inside your garage, therefore less heat will be lost through the wall between the house and the garage.

ETRV's

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

Traditional Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRVs) sense the air temperature around them and regulate the flow of water through the radiator which they are fitted to. They do not control the boiler. Inside the Traditional Thermostatic TRV Head is a sensor containing a wax or liquid material which expands as the room temperature warms up and contracts when it cools down. They have limited accuracy, hence why they typically only have 1,2,3,4,5 temperature settings.

This new 2017 Model Electronic TRV (eTRV), has digital temperature control so you can set your room temperature to 21 degrees centigrade or whatever temperature you desire. Its biggest advantage, is you can also use these eTRV's to program on/off and temperature times for every radiator in your building which can lead to significant energy savings of 20-25%. For every radiator not turned on unnecessarily, this effectively reduces the length of your heating circuit which means the water temperature in the central heating loop returns to the boiler at a higher temperature. Most Modern boilers will then use their economy settings to prevent boiler firing until heating loop cools with in turn saves fuel. This eTRV allows for multi-room zoned temperature control of your house or workplace.

Setting a TRV to a higher temperature will not make the room heat up any faster. How quickly the room heats up depends on the boiler size and radiator size. Turning a TRV to a lower setting will result in the room being controlled at a lower comfortable temperature and saves energy. TRVs need a free flow of air to sense the temperature so they must not be covered by curtains or blocked by furniture.

Chimney sheep/balloon

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

Chimney Sheep Chimney Draught Excluders are designed to be pushed into the narrow part of the chimney above the fireplace, used when the fire is out and the central heating is on.

A huge amount of warm air is drawn up the chimney throughout the day which causes draughts in rooms and loss of heated air.

It has been calculated that for an average sized flue these chimney draught excluders can save you £23 per year off your heating bills for EACH chimney, with the added benefit of reducing draughts within rooms. If you have several chimneys then the savings will be much higher.

The Chimney draught excluder is made of Herdwick wool on a handle. The wool squashes into the shape of the chimney throat or flue, and holds itself in place. When you want to light the fire this design of chimney draught excluder can simply be pulled and put it in a bag. When the fire is completely cold you can put it back in again. It's easy to use and can be used over and over again.

Each chimney draught excluder comes with a 300mm handle. If the distance from the top of the fireplace to the chimney throat is more than the length of a ruler then you may need to get an extension rod, available separately.

These chimney draught excluders have the huge advantage over similar products in that they can be easily taken out and re-fitted each time the fire is lit. There are many buildings where fires may only be used on special occasions such as only over Christmas.

Other advantages, Can stop noise coming down your chimney; saves money, sustainable material, stops cold draughts coming down your chimney for example during windy days, stops debris falling down your chimney like soot and hailstones.

Hot water jacket

A Hot Water Insulation Jacket will reduce your gas or electricity bills by reducing the cost of your hot water heating.

A poorly insulated hot water cylinder will constantly lose heat into the surrounding area which you may not want to be heating. For example, an electric immersion hot water cylinder without any insulation will lose so much heat it will actually heat the property for you, but this is electric heating which is costly to run.

Potential Savings* that can be gained by increasing the thickness of your hot water cylinder insulation are given below. You can also add further insulation to your hot water cylinder where your current insulation jacket is fairly thin. You simply add an additional 80mm thick insulation jacket over the top.


Hot water saving shower

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

water and energy saving showers work best with hot and cold mixer showers, thermostatic mixer showers and power showers. Eco Shower heads can be used with electric showers but they will generally not be able to give water or energy savings as electric showers regulates their own water flow. If this Eco shower head is used with an electric shower it will have the benefit of increasing pressure due to the aeration which is especially beneficial on low power 8 - 9.5 KW showers during winter when the water flow rate is very slow.

Window and door draught proofing

loftlegs loft insulation spacer

Your house or commercial property will loose heat during cold weather partly due to poor thermal insulation, but also due to air infiltration or the permeability of the building. Infiltration or permeability is measured in meters cubed per hour per square meter of floor area. A typical building built 1900 to 1990 will loose around 15-25 meter cubed of air per hour per square meter of floor area. This is due to natural leakage through the fabric of the building, but largely through gaps around windows and doors. Good use of draft proofing could reduce your air permeability to around 10-15 meters cubed per hour which is a good low cost way of reducing you heating bills.
