What if we told you we had a way to lower costs and provide higher quality electrical options for your home? I bet you would say, “Sign me up!” Energy efficient lighting has become the goal of nearly every homeowner. Energy efficient lighting offers higher performance while using less power, longer bulb and fixture lifespans, more stable bulbs, and less environmental impact. 

The most common energy efficient option are LED lights which generate light without generating heat. Energy Star qualified LED bulbs use 20-25% of the energy of and last up to 25 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs. As a result, LED lights are six to eight times more efficient than conventional bulbs. They work well indoors and outdoors because of their durability and performance in cold environments. LED retrofitting refers to replacing the lighting and fixtures in your home with new, better performing options such as LED lights.

The EPA sets strict energy efficiency requirements for homes and other buildings. Due to this, home energy audits are often conducted to help you understand your home’s energy usage. An audit can help you determine how much your home uses, where your home is losing energy, and which problem areas and fixes you should prioritize. This can be professionally done or through a diligent self assessment to identify problem areas and where upgrades could be done.
