In January, the Energy Independence Security Act began phasing out production of general purpose incandescent light bulbs. This new act has put the spotlight on other energy-saving bulb options including LED.
Preferred is an expert in the different LED options available in outdoor lighting and we have been installing LED systems for several years. We have also been helping clients make the switch to LED on existing lighting systems.
In a typical home situation, LED lamps should last more than 20,000 hours which means you don't have to change lamps more often than every 10 years. But the real cost savings comes in the efficiency of LED lamps - they are super efficient using just one-fourth the power of regular bulbs. While their upfront costs are higher, LED lamps pay for themselves in the long run through both reduced power usage and extraordinary lamp life.
