Cabinet lighting goes hand in hand with a well-decorated room. Few living areas, family areas, or dining areas look complete without some sort of display case. These displays can house anything from fine collectibles to student awards to sentimental family mementos. Illuminating these prized possessions is the key to giving them premier status in your interior design scheme.
The very way to do this is to use internally mounted linear lighting strips. If you are already using a linear cabinet lighting system, but you are either due for replacements or have been less than completely satisfied with your incandescent or xenon lamps, we have good news.
Illuminations Lighting and Design now offers festoon lamp retrofitting services that will replace the standard festoon lamps in your existing fixtures without having to charge you the cost of a replacement fixture. Taking advantage of this cabinet lighting service gives you the ability to put your display in an entirely new light without having to buy an expensive new source of light.
This new cabinet lighting technology is based on the very latest in LED lamp engineering. LED technology has made it possible to emulate the best quality of light in LED history. In addition to that, the new power savings curve now makes it possible for these new lamps to use only 10% as much power as incandescent sources. This means that the electrical costs of operating them is so low that you can leave them on for an indefinite period of time.
This same power saving technology allows these cabinet lighting lamps to also operate with absolutely no heat buildup. If you have a closed-door cabinet with a glass pane door, you have no doubt already noticed how hot the interior of your cabinet gets if you leave your existing lights on even for a few hours. Either you have to dim the lights to less than optimal levels, or turn them off altogether, in order to keep the display interior cool.
This is not necessary with the retrofit lamps that we can equip your system with. You can leave this new technology on day at night, and you can use the dimmer controls for what they were meant for—the establishment of ambience and mood, not thermostat controls!
If you are hesitant to replace xenon or incandescent cabinet lighting with LED light sources, please understand that we are not talking about LEDs as we stereotypically knew them in the past. Today’s new lamps can shine as brightly as incandescents and render color at the same level of quality. You will see no difference in quality after you invest in this one-time replacement.
If you have recently noticed one or two bulbs on your linear lights have burned out, now is the time to invest in replacement lamps. Call us at 713-863-1133 and let us examine your cabinet situation. We will determine best level of lumens and color temperature and recommend a retrofit that ideally compliments your individual display.
You will immediately begin saving money with a purchase that you do not have to worry about replacing for another 50,000 lamp hours (that’s 5.7 years continuous operating time), and that also helps keep your room cooling costs down with heat free illumination.
