Our recent visit to Light Fair 2011 in Philadelphia introduced us to some of the most exciting new LED technology. Both interior LED home lighting and LED landscape lighting have evolved to the point that halogen and incandescent sources of light can now be completely replaced without any noticeable change in the nature and level of the lighting.
Interior LED home lighting solutions have particularly progressed in the domain of recessed lighting design. A recessed light consist of housing, a trim, and a lamp that shines down on the room. It is possible to retrofit an LED lamp to the existing trim and housing and have a light that is just as bright as its halogen predecessor—for far less the cost.
However, new LED recessed lighting modules have just now emerged that replace everything but the existing housing with a new trim, a new lamp, and a frosted lens cover that diffuses the LED’s light so that it looks identical to that of a halogen lamp. This is a far superior replacement option because it is more supportive of custom interior architecture and interior design.
LED landscape lighting is equally impressive. New types of plug-and-play fixtures, LED flat panels, and LED modules enable us to replace existing halogen and incandescent sources on your property during outdoor maintenance checks. Most clients interested in LED outdoor lighting are looking for new systems altogether. With the wealth of new products, it is possible to custom design any system for any Houston yard with an environmentally friendly array that saves enormous operating cost and can last as 20+ years without maintenance.
There are also retrofit LED lamps that can be fitted to existing landscape and outdoor tree lighting systems. Perhaps your system is a bit to “new” to completely replace. That is ok. We can still find retrofit lamps that will perform at the same level of quality as your existing halogen and incandescent landscape lights. However, we urge you to let us recommend the products because retrofitting LED lamps can be very tricky. There are too many untested products on the market, and too much misinformation in normal retail channels, for the homeowner to safely trust.
Our lighting design team has direct access to the world’s top light fixture manufacturers. We also have the technical expertise to find the most appropriate retrofit lamp to any existing outdoor lighting fixture you may have. The investment you make in our services will be paid off over time with superior performance, maintenance free operation, and much lower power bills.
In Texas, there is only one name for a professional, functional and artistic lighting company: Illuminations Lighting Design.
