small change, BIG $avings...

By Holly Peterson

"What is the most effective change my clients, and homeowners everywhere, can do to save on energy?", was a question that I recently asked Aaron Kessel @ All Current Electric (my go-to electrician for many jobs, small and large).

The answer to my question: L.E.D. Retro fit kits
L.E.D is short for light-emitting diode, an electronic semiconductor device that emits light when an electric current passes through it.

Why choose L.E.D retro fit kits???
Here are just a few reasons why I would look into it, you may also want to:

  • They're long lasting...designed to last for 50,000+ hours (based on being run for an average of 6 hours per day, that equals 22.8 years).
  • They're SUPER energy efficient...using 85% less energy than incandescent lighting and 50% less energy than compact fluorescents.
  • They have less heat output and are comfortable to the touch, reducing the burden of needing to use costly air conditioning systems.
  • They're GREEN (environmentally friendly) too...unlike incandescent and compact fluorescents, LED retro fit kits contain no lead or mercury, and their housing is made from 100% recycled aluminum.
  • Lastly, they're easy on the eyes! LED retro fit kits are designed to blend seamlessly with any existing 4" or 6" recessed can, offering options of warm light that softly washes walls, or cool light that sufficiently illuminates work surfaces.

This is just one of many easy steps we can take to make a difference on our pocket book, as well as the environment!
