Popularity of LED Lighting Growing
During the last 10 or 15 years, LED (light emitting diode) lighting has been growing in popularity. There are several good reasons for the growth. Longer bulb life (6 times as long as compact fluorescent bulbs) and reduced energy usage for the same level of brightness (about 5 times more efficient.) Also, they do not give off as much heat as standard bulbs. Using LEDs will lower your electric bill and reduce the frequency of replacing burned out bulbs. Recent cost reductions have really made them a good deal.
Great for Security Lights
LED lights are especially good in security lights because they provide so much light at a low cost. If you have dusk to dawn lights burning all night every night, the energy cost will be greatly reduced. The brightness of illumination is also great at night when something goes bump in the dark and you want to see very clearly what is out there!
They are also good for upgrading ceiling lighting or accent lighting. Here is an image of a recent job where we converted 8-inch eyeball lights to 6-inch LED lights. They give off great light and the energy usage from all 6 of them is about the same as it was for just 1 of the previous bulbs.
If you haven’t already done so, this would be a good time to begin switching over to LED lighting. Although they are more expensive than standard bulbs, make sure to replace burned out standard bulbs with LEDs and you’ll be pleased with the change.
