5 Reasons to Switch to LED Light Bulbs

Why waste time with incandescent light bulbs when you could be saving money with LED (light-emitting diode) lights? Our electrical contractors know how to install LED lights to lower your energy consumption and help you save money in the long run. While LED light bulbs were expensive when they first came out, prices have significantly dropped after several years in the market.

Continue reading to learn why you should switch to using LED light bulbs in your home. For more information, reach out to one of our local electricians today. We’d be more than happy to inspect your home’s electrical system and schedule LED light installation.

1.) Save Money

How much do you pay on energy bills each month? Switching to LED lights can help you save money in the long run on energy bills so you can spend your hard-earned money on more important things. LED lights are designed to last more than 20 years. The average incandescent light bulb lasts approximately 11 months.

2.) Change Light Bulbs Less Often

According to ENERGY STAR®, the average American household has more than 40 light bulb sockets. LED light bulbs are great for hard-to-reach places because they last for decades. If your home has high ceilings, you won’t have to worry about changing the bulbs for another 20 years. Talk about convenience!

3.) Safe for All Light Fixtures

Whether you have light fixtures with fabric shades or delicate paper, you can count on LED light bulbs being a safe option. Our local electricians will be able to recommend trusted brands for your home. Unlike candescent light bulbs, LED lights don’t give off as much heat.

4.) Bring Light to Your Kitchen

We’ve upgraded a lot of rooms with LED lights, especially bathrooms and kitchens. Our electricians are able to install LED strip lights under cabinets. It’s hard to cook when you don’t have enough light to chop vegetables or see if you added enough seasoning. Under cabinet lighting not only gets rid of shadows, but improves the value of your kitchen. A residential electrician will know how to install LED strip lights so they last for years to come.

5.) Save the Environment

LED lights are energy efficient, which means you’ll have a lower impact on the environment in the long run. Environmental consciousness is a lasting trend. Over the years, we’ve noticed more and more homeowners being concerned with the environmental impact of their homes. LED lights help you lower your greenhouse gas emissions so you have a smaller carbon footprint. Our residential electrician will be able to help you find the right LED lighting for your home.

Our Lowell electricians will be more than happy to inspect your current lighting system to determine final costs for switching to LED light bulbs. We understand that LED lights are an investment in your home, which is why we’re always more than happy to answer any questions you might have.

Mike and his apprentice promptly took care of my electrical issue. They were professional and polite. Although they were very busy with more lucrative projects, they made time to fix my issue.They did not make me wait days although they could have. I will call them again if needed.

I had a car charger installed by Mike from Flat River Electric. Mike and Heather both worked to accommodate my schedule, from doing a walk through after business hours to an early project start time to minimize time off of work.

Mike was extremely friendly and professional during the process, and even remembered my home from a project he had done four years earlier. To install the new breaker and run the line, Mike went out of his way to avoid cutting into my ceiling. As a result, the room with the breaker panel looks exactly the same as it did before, and the project was finished under the quoted price.

I couldn’t be happier with the work that Flat River Electric did. Everything was done on time, under budget, and looks great. This was my second time using Flat River Electric, and I won’t hesitate to call them if I need a third.

We recently used Mike and his team to replace some outlets in our home and replace all of our smoke detectors. They were in and out very quickly and did a great job. Very easy to work with. I would highly recommend them.
