LED Lighting | Electricians in Fort Worth, TX

As fall heads towards winter, many homeowners’ are looking for ways to save energy with the costly heating season approaching. Tioga Contractor’s electricians in Fort Worth, TX can provide the energy saving upgrades you need. There are a number of ways to save energy, and LED lighting installation is one means.

LED lighting is the preferred option for commercial and residential lighting for those searching for ways to reduce their energy costs. Despite their benefits, many persons are reluctant to change to LED lighting, primarily due to the higher cost. However, when you consider the long life of LED’s, and the money saved on energy, LED lighting is the better choice in the end.

In addition, LED lighting is cool to the touch, and by not producing heat, the AC system will not have to run longer. 

Long Lifespan

LED lamps have a lifespan of up to 25,000 hours, vs. incandescent bulbs lifespan of about 2,000 hours. This means LED light bulbs can last ten years or longer before needing replacement. Though the initial cost is higher, the increased lifespan and energy savings will pay for themselves. Furthermore, consequently, fewer light bulbs enter the landfills.  

Energy Efficiency

LEDs use 78% less energy than a 65-watt incandescent bulb, and 22% less than an 18-watt CFL bulb. CFL bulbs grow dimmer over time, while LEDs continue to provide bright light.

Beautify Your Home

LEDs are available in a variety of types, and the options continue to expand. In addition to bulbs of all kinds, LEDs are available as tape lights, useful for under-cabinet lighting, over-cabinet lighting, countertops, and backsplashes, coved ceilings, and the glass shelves in your home bar producing stunning effects. Dimmable LED bulbs coupled with a dimmer can provide mood lighting. Tioga Contractors can provide the licensed and skilled electricians in Fort Worth, TX you need for the installation of lighting, and/or dimmer switches.

LEDs provide significant advantages and long-term savings. If you are looking for ways to reduce the electric bill, LEDs offer the results you need.

The LED Advantage

For those who live in older homes with an outdated electrical system, LED lighting can be better for older wiring as it draws less wattage. Contact our electricians in Fort Worth, TX, for quality electrical services.

In addition, as they consume significantly less electricity, LED lights are ideal for homes with solar power and little or no battery backup. 

Selective Use

However, if you are unwilling to exchange all lighting for LED’s, consider replacing installing LED light bulbs on the lights you use the most, and those that require a ladder to change. After all, climbing a ladder every 20 years or so (depending on hours used) vs. every year or two is a definite improvement you will appreciate. However, purchase name brand bulbs, as cheaper LED’s tend to fail in achieving the promised lifespan. The old adage of “you get what you pay for” is true with LED lighting.
