Upgrading your Recessed Lighting to LED

About 80% of the buildings today have lighting systems that were designed 20 or more years ago.   If your home or office fits into that category, you might want to think about upgrade options.  You can reduce energy usage and get better results from your lighting fixtures. 

One of the current new options is the use of LED bulbs to replace incandescent bulbs.  This works well in recessed lighting fixtures such as can lights.    These bulbs reduce power usage and cut down on replacements.   You can use LED bulbs for both indoor and outdoor applications.  The reduced maintenance makes them an excellent upgrade choice for floodlights in warehouses, parking lots, car showrooms, or other large storage areas.  Those bulb changes are difficult, time-consuming, and costly.

Another application around the home is in the can lights that many people have in kitchens, bathrooms, or family rooms.  Groups of incandescent bulbs generate a lot of heat quickly and can become overwhelming.   One example is a kitchen with ten of the one hundred watt bulbs burning for an hour.  They give off enough heat to make that kitchen uncomfortable, especially with the heat that comes from the range or oven.  Their light is wonderful, but the heat buildup can be too much.  Replacing those bulbs with LEDs can reduce the heat output significantly.  It can also cut back on your electric bill at the same time.  Instead of using 1,000 watts of electricity (ten bulbs times 100 watts), you might only use a quarter of that amount.
