As your trusted Licensed Electrician in Cypress, it is our job to help you be aware of the best tips and tricks to keep you and your home safe.
When it comes to lighting, there are several options available, with LED (Light Emitting Diode), fluorescent, and CFL (Compact Fluorescent Lamp) being three common choices. Let's compare these lighting options based on energy efficiency, lifespan, environmental impact, light quality, instantaneous operation, size, design and cost.
LED lighting solutions are generally considered the most energy-efficient, long-lasting, and environmentally friendly lighting option, with superior light quality and instantaneous operation. While fluorescent and CFL bulbs may be more affordable upfront, LEDs offer long-term cost savings and a wide range of design options. However, it's important to consider the specific requirements of your lighting needs and budget when choosing the right lighting option for your space.
How do I know if I need new light bulbs?
This may seem like a silly question but there are more reasons than just a burnt-out lightbulb! Maybe you want to change to a different color bulb for fun lights around the holidays. Maybe you are ready for the smart home of the future and want Alexa or Google to control your lights for you!
What is the benefit of new light bulbs?
Most importantly is less power consumption when using LED bulbs! There are other benefits such as smart bulbs, brighter bulbs, and your bulbs putting off less heat into the room!
There are too many types of bulbs! How do I know what I need?
Please contact us! We are the experts and are happy to guide you on whatever you need for your home! We have a pretty impeccable design taste if you ask me!
I don't want to bother you all to come out and replace just one light bulb!
We are more than happy to come to replace one bulb or all of them! We include safety inspections of your entire home every time we visit one of our wonderful customer's homes so there is more we can do for you rather than just a single light bulb.
There are too many letters! LED or CFL or Incandescent, what do I need?
It can get quite confusing when it comes to all the different light bulb types. That's why we are here to help! In order from least efficient to most efficient it goes Incandescent, CFL or Compact Fluorescent Tube, and LED or Light Emitting Diode.
Incandescent: is your standard light bulb, they put out decent amounts of light, get really hot to the touch, and burn out rather quickly.
CFL: is your mid-road bulb, they take a long time to warm up and get to full brightness, contain mercury, get about half as hot, and last about 10 times longer than normal bulbs.
LED: These are our go-to bulbs, they are immediately brighter than standard bulbs or CFl's, are much cooler to the touch, last 15 times longer than CFL and 25 times longer than Incandescent bulbs, all of these amazing features while being the most energy efficient.
My closet is dark, can you replace the bulb or fixture?
We sure can! Sometimes we can put a stronger LED bulb in the same fixture to increase the light output or Lumens. Sometimes we are just unable to find a brighter bulb that fits in the same fixture so we will advise you that it is time to change the fixture to something with more flexibility!
My light bulbs are really high in the ceiling or in the trees.
Not a problem at all! We are not afraid of heights and can get to any lightbulb inside or out! Trust us with your chandeliers as well as landscape lighting.
What about adding in new lights where I don't have any?
We love to do that! It is your home to customize any way you see fit so let's put new light fixtures and bulbs anywhere you want! I am envisioning your dream backyard with a big TV for watching the game under a ceiling fan or putting in a lamp and light fixture in your dedicated book nook now!
