Whether you live in Houston or any of the surrounding towns and counties, you may want to consider upgrading your home or office with an LED lighting solution.
There are many reasons to consider an LED upgrade. You might simply need an upgrade altogether, particularly if you have old wiring or insufficient lighting in your home or business. In that case, if you have to upgrade, you might as well upgrade to LED lighting.
Before you decide to transition to LED lights, you will no doubt want to get the advice of an experienced and licensed electrical contractor to evaluate your current lighting and electrical systems.
What is LED lighting?
LED stands for Light Emitting Diodes. When electrons pass through light-emitting diodes, which are semiconductors, it is transformed into light. So, essentially, LED lights turn energy into light, which means that there is less heat at the bulb source. So it uses less energy and is more environmentally sound.
What are the Benefits of Using LED Lighting?
The benefits of using LED lights over incandescent or fluorescent lights can’t be disputed.
- LED lights are longer-lasting. LED bulbs can last for up to 60,000 hours. This is particularly great for high ceilings, vaulted ceilings, and other areas of recessed lighting. This means you’ll have to change the bulbs out less.
- LED lights are recyclable and don’t hurt the environment. They are 90% more efficient than traditional lighting solutions. LED lights put out more light while using less energy to do it.
- LED lights are cool to the touch and don’t put out heat. LED lights won’t add heat to your home, so it reduces the amount of energy you use.
Upgrading your lighting to LED lights will pay for itself in the long run many times over. It’s an investment well worth considering.
What Are Some Examples of Lighting or Electrical Projects Utilizing LED lights?
If you’ve been throwing caution to the wind with an outdated electrical system, you may want to consider an electrical upgrade while upgrading your lighting to LED solutions.
You may also want to consider replacing all overhead fixtures and lamps with recessed lighting instead. Recessed lighting improves the ambiance of your home and makes a statement. It also makes your home or office seem more open and uncluttered. Recessed lights provide ambient and task lighting when mounted to your ceiling.
Recessed lighting fixtures have undergone rigorous improvements to ensure their efficiency and safety. But, a proper installation by a professional electrical contractor is a must to prevent mold and condensation, especially in the humid state of Texas. A professional installation also minimizes the risk of fire to your home or office.
