Residential LEDs — especially ENERGY STAR rated products — use at least 75% less energy, and last 25 times longer, than incandescent lighting.US Department of Energy
Light Emitting Diodes – also known as LED’s – are tiny “bulbs”. They’re assembled into a fixture to use in lighting or decorating. These lamps have a lifespan much longer than incandescent or fluorescent lamps. Likewise, they’re very energy efficient, and will help reduce your energy bill. Most of us have felt the heat coming from incandescent lamps. You may not realize how much that effects the room temperature. Generally, LED’s burn cooler and that helps to keep the temperature steady and may reduce the use of your A/C unit. In short, LED’s are designed to save you money in almost every way whether it’s residential, commercial, or industrial.
LED lamps are used for general and special-purpose lighting. The biggest difference between LED’s and other light sources is that the light runs cooler, and costs less to operate. Depending on the fixture, LED lamps can give off more directional light. Many people prefer to use LED’s to showcase parts of their home. Artwork, landscapes, and recessed walls are just a few examples. LED’s are available in a wide range of colors and patterns, as well as thousands of designs. It makes customizing your design project easy, as LED’s can quickly update the look of your home or office. The fixtures themselves are often less expensive.
Included are examples of many of the different types of fixtures or uses for LED lighting in residential, commercial, and industrial capacities. We recommend asking us first before buying an LED fixture. If it needs any special support, as a consumer, there are things you may not think of before installation.
