LED will soon be the only option when it comes to kitchen lighting. Read through the information below to understand why LED lighting is the smartest choice.
Although the initial cost of an LED fitting is higher, they last over 13 times longer than halogen, saving you money on replacement lights.
The savings that you will realize on electricity bills more than offsets this initial difference.
Thanks to the low power consumption of LEDs, you will see quite significant energy cost savings.
The Testing Station
The testing station (shown right) was set up to measure the energy usage of an LED light versus a halogen light of equal brightness. The difference in energy used was staggering. One single LED light will save you more than $14.00 annually.
Save energy, save money
* Cost savings based on
8 hours usage per day
One 20W halogen fitting costs $15.53 per year to run
One 1.65W HD LED fitting costs $1.45 per year to run
A saving of $14.09 per fitting per year
Therefore, based on a kitchen having 8 under cabinet lights installed, the saving on electricity bills per year would be $112.72
The majority of our LED lighting can be dimmed via the Sensio DayBreak driver using standard wall dimmer switches. This gives the customer increased flexibility.
Sensio LEDs have a lifespan of over 30 years when used an average of 4 hours per day. Halogens only last 1.5 years. The lifespan of our LED lights can ultimately outlive the kitchen itself. Not needing to replace lights means an added savings of time, hassle and money.
The majority of our lighting products are available in cool white and warm white temperatures. This allows you to choose the lighting that will best complement your color scheme. In addition, flexible strips can be installed almost anywhere because of their low profile and ability to be cut to custom lengths. LED offers a whole new set of possibilities in kitchen design.
LED fittings have an incredibly low power consumption despite their high light output. For instance, a standard Sensio HD LED under-cabinet lighting runs at only 1.65W. LED lighting uses over 90% less energy than halogen lighting.
The advancement of LED technology is rapid. The LED chip technology continues to evolve to give brighter lighting. The look and design of LED lights continues to be refined with ever increasing slimline products to suit any and every customer.
