LED Lighting in Fort Collins and Windsor, Colorado
Welcome to 2017, where homeowners and business owners alike are more conscious of saving energy and money.
LED (Light emitting diodes) lights are the future of traditional incandescent light bulbs. If you’ve recently noticed your electricity bill lighting up your bank account, we’ve got a bright idea for you — switch to LEDs.
LED lights have a slightly higher cost up front than other traditional light bulbs, but it doesn’t take long to see the benefits of indoor, outdoor, and security LED lights for your home.
Longer lifespan – The average LED light has a life expectancy of around 50,000 hours compared to those of incandescent lights (around 1,200 hours) and fluorescent lights (around 10,000 hours). Even if your LED lights were on 24/7, they’d last up to 6 or 7 years before needing to be replaced.
Lower energy usage – LED lights to consume up to 90% less energy than incandescent light bulbs and up to 50% less energy than fluorescent lights. Because they are so low energy, they are a great source of light for households that choose to use solar panels.
Low-maintenance – Because LEDs don’t burn out as fast as other lights, they don’t require as much maintenance as far as changing bulbs.
Safer – LED lights don’t generate nearly as much heat as incandescent and fluorescent lights do, making them cooler to the touch. Incandescent lights release about 90% of the heat they consume and fluorescent lights release around 90% of the heat they consume. Converting to LED lights also means no more burns or fires that other lights have caused.
