LED lighting is a great option for those looking to improve the energy efficiency in their home for several reasons:
- They last longer than traditional lighting,
- Their ability to reduce energy costs by 75%,
- They are cool to the touch,
- and they are mercury-free.
If you are new to LED lighting, you might not be sure of how to use it in your home. In this article, we will discuss different ways you can use LED lighting in your home to improve energy efficiency.
You can find LED light bulbs for just about every part of your home, including your outdoor spaces. Depending on how much you want to reduce your energy costs, you can use LED light bulbs as your primary lighting source or as a supplement to your current lighting. For example, you can place compatible LED light bulbs in all of your lamps. If you want to have a larger impact on reducing energy costs in your home, however, you might want to consider installing LED light fixtures.
LED light fixtures come in various shapes and sizes that you can have installed in your kitchen, dining room, living room, bed rooms, bathrooms and more! LED light fixtures available today include down light fixtures, tracking fixtures, cabinet lighting fixtures, refrigerator and freezer fixtures, surface and suspended, lamps, display case fixtures and bay fixtures.
There are a wide range of LED lighting outdoor fixtures too, including flood lights, patio lighting, lighting for your paved pathways, outdoor lamps, lanterns, and outdoor house lights. If you are considering the idea of adding outdoor lights to your property for the first time, you might want to consider meeting with an electrician from 24-7 Electrical Services LLC to determine whether or not outdoor lighting will be beneficial for your residence and lower energy costs.
When purchasing LED lighting fixtures and bulbs, look for Energy Star labeled because you can get rebates from NV Energy, allowing you to save even more money! Currently, the state of Nevada offers rebates for residents who purchase LED light bulbs that have the Energy Start label on them.
