LED Home lighting is one of the fastest growing trends in home lighting design. LEDs have historically been the most energy efficient forms of lighting. In the recent past, LED engineering has advanced to a level that puts the quality of these fixtures on par with traditional light sources. It is now possible to do anything with LEDs that you previously did with metal halide, fluorescent, mercury vapor, and incandescent light fixtures.
This level of sophistication, though, is only possible with professional design services and commercial grade equipment. It is very difficult to retrofit every fixture in your home with a retail LED equivalent. It takes more than matching electrical specifications to find a matching replacement for an existing light fixture. LED home lighting fixtures produce light in a fundamentally different way than other light fixture technologies. Not only do you need licensed electricians to properly retrofit your luminaires; you also need professionals with experience in creating the lighting effects essential to duplicating (or possibly improving) the look and feel of your indoor and outdoor lighting systems
LED lighting kits are NOT recommended for these reasons. You will admittedly get a high quality of light from some of the fixtures you install, but you will not get the layering and blend of light and shadow that characterize fine lighting design.
Consider what you will get when you call ILD for residential electrical contracting and led home lighting retrofit services.
Energy Saving Calculations and Residential ROI Analysis
Before we talk about how much money you will need to spend on LEDs, we begin by looking at how much money a full system will return to your budget in the form of monthly energy bill savings.
This makes investing in new equipment not only more comfortable, but also more practical from a fiscal perspective. Many of our clients are business owners and entrepreneurs who are more than willing to invest in a predictable return.
Access to Professional Grade LED Lighting Products
Admittedly, there are many quality led home lighting fixtures out there that you can buy in the store. The problem is, they are not all equal in quality. Buying fixtures yourself will result in an uneven distribution of light from aesthetically incompatible sources.
Retrofit Lamping Options and/or LED Fixture Replacements
You do not always need to replace a light fixture. Many fixtures now can be retrofitted with LED lamps. Our electricians will recommend which option is in our best interest. This often results in savings on front-end costs.
Experts in Dimming All Types of Led home lighting
Originally, LEDs were not dimmable. New developments have now made it possible to control lighting levels like never before. Our licensed electricians are also experts in home lighting control, so they can not only set you up with an entirely new lighting system, but also give you total control of that system!
The greatest benefit you will receive from led home lighting is a return on your investment in the form of long-term energy bill savings. You will also pay less, in the long run, for maintenance because LED lamps last much longer than type of lamps. You might also consider the environmental benefits of using an earth-friendly technology. Houston’s new green initiatives indicate a growing awareness that humans can actually good life in harmony with the world, and making your home more environmentally friendly may also add to its equity if this trend continues in the future.
