What are LED Recessed Lights?
LED Recessed Lighting provides a different aesthetic compared to traditional light fixtures. Often referred to as “canned lighting”, an electrician installs the canned fixture with the LED into a hollow opening in the ceiling. They can provide task lighting which allows for light to be directed to one point creating greater visibility for tasks such as cooking, working, or reading. LED Recessed Lighting has the option for various dimming effects creating an ambient environment in your home or office. With strategic placement, LED Recessed Lights provide a subtle glow that can blur the corners of a room creating the look and feel of more space.
In addition to eye pleasing aesthetics, LED Recessed lights have wallet pleasing benefits as well. The Light Emitting Diode or LED, is one of today’s most energy-efficient and rapidly developing technologies. This type of light bulb is more than five times more energy-efficient and can last up to 25 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs. Their mechanics allow for a cooler burning temperature which saves energy resulting in a longer lifespan and lower electric bills.
With AAA Bishop Electric’s experience, we know which lighting spectrum you need for different applications.
Below is a quick comparison of the lifespans of traditional Incandescent Bulbs, Compact Fluorescent Bulbs, and LED Bulbs:
- Incandescent: 1000 hrs.
- Compact Fluorescent: 10,000 hrs.
- LED: 50,000 hrs.
Factory warranty of an LED bulb is 5 1/2 years.
If used 3 hours or less a day, LED bulbs can last up to 20 years or more!
Longer Bulb Life = Less Energy Consumption = Lower Electric Bill
LED Recessed Lighting offers versatile fixtures that go with almost all decor and can be used in a variety of areas such as:
- Home Offices
- Family Rooms
- Bathrooms and Showers
- Exterior Porch
- Entry Ways
They come in a variety of sizes and levels of the light spectrum for both tall and low ceilings to suite your taste and style. The fixtures can be mounted into ceilings creating a neat and unobtrusive look to any room.
LED Bulbs are versatile and can fit into currently present chandeliers, lamps, and light fixtures.
When you buy and replace such light bulbs, think of them as appliances – perhaps a coffee maker or toaster – rather than something that will need to be replaced in a few months. Just as you would invest in an appliance you expect to use for years, buying an LED light bulb today requires more of an initial investment but yields much greater returns in terms of energy savings and operating life, all without sacrificing the needed light output. AAA Bishop Electric’s experience and skill provides for the safest and most strategic installation of your new LED Recessed Lighting.
