Go Green And Save Green

Switching to LED lights can be a bright idea for your home
Switching to LED lights can be a bright idea for your home.

(NAPSI)—Motivated by bright lights, big savings or simply the desire to go green, an increasing number of consumers are now taking advantage of the many benefits that light-emitting diode (LED) technology has to offer. Perhaps even better, those looking to update their fixtures or swap out existing lighting for LED technology can do so quickly and easily thanks to the many retrofit products available.

Why LED, Why Now?

Upgrading recessed downlights to LED fixtures can significantly reduce operating and maintenance costs. This increased savings is a direct result of both the reduced energy needed to power them as well as the long life built into each product. In fact, when compared to traditional incandescent lights, LED products consume up to 75 percent less energy and are designed to last 35 to 50 times longer.

Making the Switch

Additional benefits include brightness equal to or greater than existing lighting technologies and the fact that light output remains constant over time. Add in the excellent color quality, smooth dimming and how the lights immediately come on when activated—without having to warm up—and upgrading to LED products seems like a no-brainer.

The switch to LED lighting can significantly reduce operating, maintenance and cooling costs. With energy legislation driving higher mandated efficiency levels, now is a good time to upgrade to a high-efficiency product that meets lower energy consumption levels.

Products And Solutions

Thanks to the increase in LED retrofit modules for recessed lighting available, it’s easier than ever for homeowners to find the best option and make the switch. Products from the HALO LED Recessed Downlighting line from Cooper Lighting make the process as simple as screwing in a lightbulb. Many feature an Edison screw base adapter and quick-connect system that allows for simple installation in four easy steps. This easy switch saves time and money.
