Have you ever held your hand near or touched a 100 watt incandescent light bulb? It’s hot! The heat you feel is like lighting cash on fire. What’s the point we’re trying to make? All that heat from the light bulb is nothing but wasted energy (burned cash). The electricity is generating heat instead of light. Retiring those old light bulbs is just one way Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air can help you save a bunch of money. Modern LED lighting systems can also give your home a new look.
The transition has been going on for years. First it was fluorescent light bulbs. They were good, but LEDs (light emitting diodes) are even more energy efficient and provide much more natural lighting. For a long time, it was hard to justify upgrading because LED lighting was quite expensive. The price gap has closed considerably, and all indications are that trend will continue.
The $$ adds up
Yes, LED light bulbs still cost more upfront than incandescent bulbs but they last thousands of hours longer. Even after factoring in the upfront cost, each LED bulb will save from $3 to $5 per year. Multiply that by the 20 to 40 bulbs found in each home and LED lights can often save you $100 every year.
A bold, new look
Don’t get us wrong, saving money is great, but Dixie can also give your home a sparkling new look. LED lighting is extraordinarily versatile and can be used in virtually all applications:
- Recessed lights
- Under cabinet lighting
- Ceiling lights
- Step lights
It’s easy to match the decor of any room in the house because LED lighting comes in multiple color tones:
- Neutral white
- Warm white
- Cool white
Just imagine the dramatic new looks you can create throughout your home.
