How to transition to LED Lighting

by Adhecogen

LED lighting has become a very normal topic when it comes to Electricity and energy efficiency. People are becoming more excited about the process of transitioning from incandescent lighting to LED lighting. First of all, let’s explore the benefits of LED lighting.

Major Benefits of LED Lighting

  • LEDS consume up to 90% less power when compared to incandescent light bulbs, which makes them very energy efficient.
  • There is a huge decrease in energy costs
  • LEDS have an extremely long lifespan
  • They are very durable
  • They have a low voltage (which makes them easy to use outside as well)

Important Tips on How to Transition To LED Lighting

Understanding the many benefits of LED lighting is great, but knowing how to transition is just as important. Take a look at the steps below, as they outline some important tips in regards to the entire transition process:

  1. Decide how bright you’d like your lights to be.

The great thing about LEDs is that they’re extremely customizable. You can choose how bright you’d like your lights to be throughout your area. Unlike incandescent light bulbs, LEDs are measured in lumens. Incandescent light bulbs, as many of us know, are measured in watts. Here is a conversion that you can keep handy during your transition:

Lumens 250 450 800 1110 1600 2000
Standard Incandescents 25W 40W 60W 75W 100W 125W
  1. Choose a Colour Temperature.

LED lights come in many temperatures, which are solely based on the colour that’s given off by the heated metal. Many people choose the warm and soft lights.

  1. Dimmable Lighting

Decide if you want dimmable lighting. Not all LED lights are dimmable so you’ll have to make sure the ones you order are.

Transitioning to LEDs can be quite the hassle and confusing if you’re doing it all on your own. Give Adhecogen a call at 905-282-0881 and we’ll ensure your transition is smooth, and stress free. Ecogen is you number one energy efficient solutions for LED lighting.
