Hi Peter.

I'm a licensed electrician and would be happy to help.

Price quoted is for labour only to change over 68 down lights from halogen to LED and is based on your ceiling being under 2.8M

Please note any fittings/globes or excess parts or labour used will need to be paid in cash onsite

Please consider that airtasker take a 15% cut of the final fee. Unfortunately we need to inflate our prices to cover this so we are not left out of pocket.

If you take out the 15 percent airtasker fee, then that is the rate per light.

Please advise height of highest ceiling.

If you want the bulbs at cost, I will give you the details of where to buy them and the best deal, and you can order them and pay for them.

Btw, are all the lights working now? Just thinking we may need a few new transformers and plugs as well.

Please answer my questions and I'll make this happen.

You will save a lot on power with the leds.

Look at my reviews and my profile. You will love my work

Offer for labour to changeover 68 halogens to led downlights. Based from under 3.2m heights and with plug bases. I can supply 90mm warm white (or any colour) being 10w. Around $15 each if we are getting this many. I use a quality flush mount fitting which comes in white as standard. But happy to work with whatever you wish to opt for. I can be available for Friday to inspect/start if needed.

You could have paid for them by now with the power savings from replacing them three weeks ago!
Hey Peter

As others have mentioned changing the globes isn't the best solution. Most halogen down lights have a transformer that's not compatible with led globes. So they will either flicker or just not work.

So it's it better to just get a whole new fitting which will also come with new part warranty

Also please consider that to change over this many lights will take a significant amount time (it's approx 5 - 10 mins per light) more if parts are required. Also airtasker take a 15% cut of the final fee. Unfortunately we need to inflate the prices to cover this so we aren't left out of pocket.
Hi Peter to replace halogen to Led is better to change the all system to new way for Led, from hard wiring to plug and new fitting LED, to avoid future problems with led globes, if only changed the globe to LED, later you see the issues such buzzing noises LED replace more often because the transformer is no the right type, LED star to flickering, just to consider, how much you want to expend in long term, looking around $24 plus plug $4 x 68 and few hours labour
Brendan....I have replaced halide bulbs with Led bulbs recently. Just enquiring as to why you think they need fittings to.

The task says replace bulbs does it not?
Peter I can be available this week for your scope of works.
