When you are remodelling your home, you have an opportunity to think about every aspect of your property and how you can change it to better reflect your tastes and the way that you use your home. Remodelling is also an opportunity to use technology to easily introduce energy-saving measures into your home. One technological advancement you should consider using is LED lighting. While home lighting has changed significantly in recent years, not everyone has yet discovered the advantages of LED lighting. By working with a company offering residential electrical services, you can install LED lighting throughout your home. Here are three reasons that you should consider the benefits that LED lighting can bring.
Increased energy efficiency
Asking a company offering residential electrical services to fit LED lighting in your home could lead to greatly improved energy efficiency in your property. LED lighting lasts far longer than incandescent, halogen, fluorescent and other types of bulbs and uses less electricity, meaning that you will be saving money every time you switch on a light in your home. The longer lifespan of the LED lighting means reduced maintenance work replacing burnt-out bulbs. A further indication of the energy efficiency offered by LED lighting is that it emits light hemispherically instead of spherically. Many bulbs fitted by residential electrical services companies emit light in all directions, meaning a lot of energy is wasted lighting up your ceiling. LED lighting is mounted on a flat surface and sends all of the emitted light exactly where it is needed.
Less likely to break
Traditional home lighting involves glass enclosures and filaments, both of which can be easily broken or damaged. When you ask a residential electrical company about fitting LED lighting in your home you will discover that LED lighting is far less vulnerable to damage.
If you have any type of fluorescent or HID lighting at home, you will know that it can take a while for the lighting to reach peak brightness. You will notice that the room often appears dim for a few moments after you first switch on the lights. By contrast, when you use LED lighting, the room is instantly bright without any noticeable delay.
