3 Smart Reasons to Upgrade With LED Lighting
Let Your Home Lighting Control System Shine in your Bay City Property
When designing a home lighting control system, you probably think of where you want to have the fixtures installed and how easy it will be to control. What you might not think about is the type of light you're installing – even though that can make all the difference in the world. Your smart lighting system can do a lot, but it needs the right components to do the job. In this blog, we'll take you through the benefits of utilizing light emitting diode (LED) fixtures for a more beautiful, longer lasting and environmentally-friendly throughout your spaces.
You already know that LED lighting can change color with one touch, but the stylistic options don't stop there. LED lights are also customizable when it comes to the size and shape of the fixtures, so you can put them anywhere.
Smart lighting fixtures can be designed for everything from lining your walkway, to illuminating your pool, to creating beautiful highlights behind your home theater screen. You can light up an entire living room, or a small closet. Unlike the fixed shape of incandescent or florescent bulbs, LED lights are composed of many individual diodes, shape-customization very easy.
Did you know that a traditional incandescent light bulb uses only about 20% of the electricity used to power it for light? The rest is expended as heat. Even if you're not interested in conserving energy, that level of waste is unnecessary. LED lights use 70%-80% electricity, making them the most energy-efficient options on the market today.
What does that mean for your home? Lower energy costs, for starters. You can add more lights in more rooms for greater customization. Never settle for a few lamps when you can have recessed, in-ceiling fixtures throughout the main house, plus remote control over the lighting in the pool house.
In addition to efficiency, LED lights are made without harmful chemicals, making going green a snap.
Long Lasting Light
Did we mention disposing of them? Many homeowners are hesitant to upgrade with LED lighting – particularly in hard-to-reach areas like the yard or pool – because they fear it will be too time-consuming or expensive to replace the lights when they burn out. But you don't have to worry about that; even if you leave them on all day and all night, LED lights can last up to 11 years without replacement.
Of course, you probably won't be leaving your lights on 24/7. If you take advantage of many home lighting control features like occupancy sensors, timers, daylight sensors and "away" modes, your lights could last well over 20 years.
