Making the switch to LED bulbs in your home.
Want to make the switch to LED but don’t know where to start? Start with your lamps! Lamp bulbs are easy to switch and can make a big difference in your home’s ambiance.
Energy and Cost Savings with LEDs
LEDs are widely known as lights that last longer, save energy, and decrease your electric bill, but how much better are they actually?
Compared to traditional incandescent bulbs, LEDs use 75% less energy in your home or office. It’s no surprise that these savings in energy can significantly reduce your electricity bill over time.
In terms of price, LED bulbs are typically more expensive to purchase compared to incandescent; however, incandescent bulbs typically only last about six months whereas LED bulbs can light up your home for 10+ years. In the long run you are still saving money, making them a great investment.
When purchasing LED bulbs, you also have the option to get dimmable or non-dimmable. Dimmable bulbs are great to have in your living spaces, bedrooms, movie rooms, and in accent light fixtures. Dimmable LED lamps can cut your energy use and cost savings down even more, as modern dimmers used today only send the energy needed for the brightness level you want. Less light used = less energy used = lower cost on your energy bill!
Benefits of LEDs
Not only are LEDs great for your home, they also benefit your physical and mental health. It’s important to light your home in a way that coordinates with your natural circadian rhythm to avoid eye pain, headaches, fatigue and even stress. LED bulbs produce a more consistent color reducing your eye strain during the day, and they mimic the effects of natural sunlight which can help decrease levels of anxiety and stress.

Another great thing about switching to LED lamps is the flexibility to choose the color hue you want. LEDs come in a wide variety of colors, including different shades of whites and yellows. Color temperature in your home is a personal preference, but is something to be aware of when shopping for new bulbs. We offer warm, soft, cool, daylight, and many other varieties in-store or online at The Light Center.
Since LED bulbs come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors, they are a great choice for unique lighting in places other than lamps. LEDs are perfect for under-cabinet lighting to add a unique look and lighten up your kitchen space, or put LED bulbs in your dining room fixture to have complete control over the mood and ambiance for your next dinner party! LED bulbs are also commonly used for recessed down lights in hallways, bathrooms, and other rooms.
Most LED bulbs are compatible with the lamps you already own and they come in a variety of styles, making it an easy switch. Lighting technology is always advancing and we want to help you stay ahead of the curve. Save money and enjoy bright, beautiful light in your home with LED lamps.
