It is likely that you have seen many buying guides on LED lighting previously. With so many recommendations on LED lighting and countless suggestions for how you can upgrade your lighting with LEDs, it is difficult to know which advice is going to be solid for your LED lighting. If you want more information on the value of transitioning over to LED lighting here are some qualities you may not have considered!
LED Lighting Can Improve Your Room Design
Regular lighting often does not highlight the design features of your space. LED lighting can display the natural colors in your design space and with a wide range of colors, textures and more.
LEDs Can be a Solid-State Technology
Fluorescent and incandescent bulbs generate light by passing current through filaments and gases this can generate heat as well as light. The circuitry that’s available in the LED fixtures will not heat up and this can produce some powerful results for improving the heating and cooling in your home and for optimizing energy efficiency.
Labels on LED Bulbs Can Help You Make the Right Choice
Paying attention to the lumens rating as well as the equivalency will tell you how much light your LED will output. A 13 W LED equivalent could be a 60 W bulb for a traditional incandescent. Your 13 W bulb may be able to produce the same energy as a normal 60 W bulb and this can be particularly powerful when considering the value of the technology and the cost savings.
You Can Install Dimmers
LED technology works with dimmer switches and sensors. If you want to control the lighting levels in your space with LED bulbs, you can find dimmer switches and bulbs that will suit your needs easily.
LED lighting can be a bit of an upfront investment but it is well worth it for the long term cost savings that you can experience through retrofitting your home with LED!
