Be Energy Conscious

It is time that we all face the facts:
1 Utility costs are not going to get less expensive unless we consume less.
2 The costs we now pay for utility is only going to increase unless we are proactive about cutting usage.
3 By reducing your consumption you can free up the excessive amount of money that is wasted, in some cases thousands per year.
4 We would all like to use our utility bill costs for other things, that addition you wanted on your home, the car you have always wanted, a vacation, venture capital for your business, or even to invest in your retirement.
5 The saving generated from leaning wasteful usage of energy can add up quickly and maybe even fuel all of your commuting cost. (even with fuel cost at an all time high)

New lighting will likely save you about the following:
Average Residential savings of $100 a month = about $12000.00 over ten years.
Average Commercial-Industrial savings of $400 per month = about $48000.00 over ten years.
Each home or business is addressed on an individual basis; results will be different for each building, based upon current usage and the integrated usage after updating the building.
These are realistic numbers that show the effect being proactive in reducing energy consumption can achieve.

LED lamps and how they can help you.

By now many of you have seen the LED lamps. they come in many different shapes and sizes, so to keep it simple, I will compare a common eight Watt LED lamp to our trusty 60 watt incandescent.
(An 8w LED A lamp is the most common type to replace the standard 60W incandescent)

Keep in mind:

Watt=W and KW=1000Watts

We pay for our electrical utility based on:

1000 Watts used for an hour = 1 KWH

The average consumer pays about 10 cents per KWH. 

A 60W light bulb on for one year continuously will cost the average consumer almost $60 ($52.56 @10cents per. KWH)

The 8W LED lamps will produce about the same amount of light for a fraction of the cost, about $8 if left on 24 hours a day 365 days a year.

With the above details in mind, consider the time you use your lights and multiply that by the amount of people in your home, that should give you a good idea of your utility savings in real money, it is likely a lot more than we usually think. In some cases thousands and at least hundreds per year. Lighting can accommodate for up to 60% of your utility cost, take a look at your electric utility bill. How much do you pay for power. We can get you LED lamps also, just send us an e-mail or call. We can also help you save in many other ways as well. I am going to try to help our customers cut their bills in half or more. We have cut utility costs for customers as much as $5000+ per year. I am hoping we can do even better soon. There are, third-party, grants and rebates available also and I can help you get the most out of the incentives as well, so send us an e-mail or call, our team is here to help you.

There are other details you will want to know when buying your lamps if you decide to get them on your own:

First is the color, this will be determined by the K or Kelvin temperature. 2300K is orange and similar to incandescent lamp color. 5000K is more white like sun light and easier to see true color with.

Next is the Lumen value: 600 Lumen is created by the average 60W lamp, use that value to determine your needed brightness.

Now that you know the basics, look on the packaging when you buy LED lamps, here are the other details you will look for:

Lamp life, a good LED will have at least 25,000 hour life expectancy, a great LED will have at least 50,000 hour life expectancy.

There are some bad ones on the market still so if you have question contact us.

We have many LED lamps available at great prices for every application, inside, outside, can replacement, security and many more.

Energy savings is simple numbers.

If you are still using incandecent lamps each one is costing you 10 times the money an LED lamp consumes, and each incandecent lamp is costing you 5 times the money a CFL would consume. If you are looking for a good way to cut your utillity costs, start by updating your lamps in your home or buisness. New lighting technology has come along way in the past couple years. Lamp life and performance are much better with both LED and CFL lighting. The “bad rap” in new lighting has come from the old CFL technology, however the newer lamps put them to shame. If you would like to know more about how to update your home or buisness lighting, please contact us. We have many great products available to brighten up your day and save you some big money on that unsightly utility bill.
