For the longest time, “light bulb” was synonymous with incandescent lighting. And while incandescent bulbs served us well for many years, alternatives such as fluorescent, halogen, and LED lighting have steadily grown in popularity. In particular, LED installation is an increasingly common service among electricians in Vancouver and elsewhere. So what makes now such a great time to consider LED installation? Our expert electricians at TCA Electric are here to explain in today’s blog post!
More affordable than ever
Years ago, the barrier to LED installation for most homeowners and business owners was cost. While LEDs figured to save money in the long run, the upfront investment of LED installation was just too much. However, LEDs have become more and more affordable each year while continuing to offer impressive energy savings. The overall result is that LEDs pay for themselves much faster than they used to, making LED installation a surefire green electrical upgrade that will save both energy and money.
LED installation is widely available
While it was once more of a luxury, LED lighting installation is now one of the most common electrical services that professional electricians provide. The increased affordability of LEDs meant that many more homeowners and business owners were looking to upgrade to LED lighting. As a result, electrical companies everywhere responded to the heightened demand. For those looking to make the switch to LEDs, there are now many more options when it comes time to pick the right electrician for the task.
More flexible than alternatives
As interior design and lighting trends shift each year, LED lighting has retained its popularity. A big reason for this is the incredible versatility LED lighting offers. Between varying colour options and excellent compatibility with dimmer switches, LED lighting can suit any room in your house. For example, family rooms and home theatres can make great use of dimmers, while areas such as bathrooms and bedrooms can benefit from warmer lighting hues to promote better sleep. Meanwhile, restaurants, storefronts, and other businesses can each make great use of LEDs depending on their needs. Because of the incredible flexibility of these lights, LED installation makes sense as part of remodeling projects in any area of your home or business.
Enjoy a longer-lasting lighting solution
Replacing light bulbs can be a pain sometimes—so much so that we have hundreds of variations on the classic “how many X does it take to screw in a light bulb?” joke. After installing LED fixtures, however, the answer to that joke will be “no one” for a good long while. Many LEDs can last up to 50,000 hours, a lifespan around 50 times longer than typical incandescent bulbs. Put another way, these fixtures can operate 12 hours a day for more than 11 years. That makes now an excellent time to look into LED installation, as you won’t have to worry about changing lights out for a decade or longer.
