LED lighting has become increasingly popular in the Houston area. This increased interest in LED lighting is primarily because they cost less to operate and the LED bulbs last up to 25 times longer than other bulbs. Replacing your older light fixtures and using energy efficient LED bulbs is also a great way to update your home without breaking the bank.
New fixtures and LED bulbs may be a little more expensive initially, their longevity, quality and energy efficiency make LED lights a great choice in the long run. LED bulbs are designed to focus the light in one specific direction instead of all directions like incandescent bulbs. This directed light makes LED bulbs significantly more energy efficient. LED lights radiate less heat than traditional light bulbs.
There are a number of additional benefits for LED lighting. Energy.gov has this article about LED Lighting as part of their series highlighting the “Top Things You Didn’t Know About…”
In 2012, about 49 million LEDs were installed in the U.S. — saving about $675 million in annual energy costs. Switching entirely to LED lights over the next two decades could save the U.S. $250 billion in energy costs, reduce electricity consumption for lighting by nearly 50 percent and avoid 1,800 million metric tons of carbon emissions.
It’s always a good idea to hire a certified, licensed electrician to give your entire home a thorough inspection, especially if you’re planning to remodel a room.
