How LED Life is Measured

The long life and energy efficiency of Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) has sparked excitement from consumers, manufacturers, and energy conservation groups. In fact, the US Department of Energy predicts that by gradually switching to LEDS over the next 20 years, the nation could save around $250 billion in energy costs and cut our lighting electricity […]

LED Recessed Lighting: For Commercial and Residential

For decades, recessed lights (also known as can lights or downlights) have remained a favorite choice for modern, streamlined lighting in kitchens, bathrooms, hallways, basements, and in commercial spaces. They are used for both accent and general lighting, and because they are relatively compact, they work wonderfully in small spaces. One of the latest types […]

Light Fights: LED vs. Fluorescent

In this post, we’re continuing our “Light Fight” series where we compare two different lighting options used in similar applications. In today’s matchup we have the ever-popular fluorescent bulbs versus the still evolving, yet promising LED lights. Have LEDs already surpassed fluorescents in terms of quality, cost, and energy efficiency? Let’s explore the two technologies… […]

LED Lighting Efficiency

LEDs, or Light Emitting Diodes, have been around for years, but only recently evolved to the point where they became useful as a lighting solution. Now, thanks to their high-quality light and energy efficiency, they are some of the most popular lights on the market. How efficient are they? LEDs use about 85% less electricity […]
