Wolfers Lighting is committed to green living and continues to screen and adopt the best in green technologies and the ever-changing development of new light emitting diode (LED) light sources. LEDs are great energy-efficient lighting options for many residential lighting applications, including decorative pendants and sconces, under-cabinet, cove, and recessed lighting.
These energy-efficient lights offer an environmentally friendly alternative to incandescent light bulbs, compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), and most halogen light bulbs. LEDs last longer than most incandescent light bulbs and CFLs because they don’t have a filament that will burn out. They also have a cool light output, with no UV or heat energy, so they won’t overheat. LEDs are illuminated by the movement of electrons in a semiconductor material, lasting as long as a standard transistor.
In their early stages of production, LED lights received a lot of criticism for being too expensive, due to the advanced semi-conductor material used to produce the light bulbs. Fortunately, over the past 10 years the price of this material has dropped significantly, making LEDs a morecost effective home lighting solution. At face value, LEDs are still more expensive than conventional incandescent bulbs.However,LEDs last longer and save more energy than traditional bulbs, reducing your electric bills and maintenance costs, further proving that LED lights are often a more valuable choice.
At Wolfers Lighting, we suggest choosing your light source based on performance and application. There is no question that LED lighting and green technology will continue to develop rapidly in the future. Wolfers Lighting will continue to monitor these new LED lighting products as we help our clients in selecting the best lighting options for them.
