One of the most common things that people take the least interest in when it comes to a room’s décor is the lighting system. Not unless the room has an elaborate and one of a kind light fixture, we usually become more drawn to the furniture and art work placed inside the room. This is why many home owners don’t really spend a lot on light fixtures and bulbs. However, using common mass produced bulbs isn’t always good. In recent years, more and more types of bulbs are coming into the market, and many of the new ones, like LEDs, are actually better than the regular incandescent bulbs. Here are a few things to think about before buying your light fixtures. 

Life Span Basically, you’d want a bulb that can last for a long time. A regular incandescent bulb can run for 1,200 hours. It also tends to lose its brightness after a while. Newer bulbs are more efficient and they last longer. For example, an LED can run for a good 50,000 hours. They also don’t lose their brightness, even when they’re near to their. 

Energy Efficiency One of the main reasons why newer lights are better is because they’re considered as energy friendly bulbs. This means that they use less power to produce the same light output as older bulbs do. These new lights would use 80 to 90 percent less power that a regular 100 watt bulb uses. Less power, less consumption, more savings. 

Think Long Term Investing on newer kinds of light bulbs is expensive. However, you do get a return of investment and you get to notice the big change on your electricity bill on the first month. You also wont be spending more on maintenance since these bulbs last longer. For further assistance, comments and questions, contact our customer support hotline.
