Welcome to the second instalment of our blog, which focuses on the risks associated with halogen globes and the benefits of switching to the Domus Bliss-13 LED downlight.
Emitting high temperatures when switched on, halogen globes can create a serious fire hazard within your roof space due to combustible materials such as timber beams, leaves and some types of insulation. Due to these high temperatures, halogen globes require large distances from any insulation, meaning that significant areas of your roof space will remain uninsulated, leading to heat gain in summer and heat loss in winter.
Unlike halogen globes, 13 watt Domus Bliss LED downlights are IC-F rated (insulation covered and abutted rating), meaning your insulation can be fully installed without the need to leave areas uncovered. The downlights are also fixed and fully sealed to ensure that no dust, insects or direct airflow can pass in or out of your home or business’s occupied space, leading to reduced energy costs.
Compared to 50 watt halogen globes, Domus Bliss LED downlights run at 13 watts, while still outputting 900 plus lumens of light, so as not to compromise brightness, reducing energy costs by almost 75%, while also possessing a huge life expectancy of 50,000 hours or 10 years.
Warm white lights with a flush face frame, dimmable driver and 120 degree beam angle, offering a superior spread of light to other downlights, Domus Bliss LED downlights are also backed by a three year replacement warranty.

Welcome to the second instalment of our blog, which focuses on the types of things you can find in your roof space if it’s left unattended to.
Just like every other room in your home or business, your roof space will continue to build up dust, dirt and other unwanted grime if it’s not regularly cleaned; however what many people aren’t aware of is that this grime is a common breeding ground for dust mites, which thrive in a warm and humid environment and can make their way into furniture upholstery, bedding, carpets, curtains and more, resulting in allergies which can affect your family members or staff.
The grime also often contains toxins, which can have a large impact on family or staff members, particularly those who already suffer from chronic allergies and respiratory issues.
While a dirty roof space houses many risks like the above that are more difficult to see, it can also house other, more obvious risks, with a neglected roof space offering creatures such as possums, rodents, snakes, birds, spiders and more the perfect place to take up residence, with these various creatures being a common encounter for Active Vac staff.
Also being a common location for old redundant hot water tanks, these tanks commonly attract rats and other rodents, as well as having the potential to leak, causing significant damage to your home or business. At Active Vac, our professional tradesmen can remove your old water heaters safely and avoid the risk of damage to your ceiling. The removal of the tank benefits an area which would previously be impossible to clean and insulate.
