Visions Integrated Technology Solutions provides custom LED lighting design and installation for homes and businesses in Johnson City, TN. We deliver high end, low voltage solutions – at an affordable price point.
The light-emitting diode (LED) is one of the most energy-efficient lighting technologies available today. LED is a type of solid-state lighting that uses a semiconductor to convert electricity into light. Today’s LED bulbs can be 6 to 7 times more energy efficient than conventional incandescent lights, and can cut your energy use by more than 80 percent!
LED lighting can produce significant energy savings for in Johnson City, TN homes and businesses. The US Department of Energy estimates that widespread use of LEDs could save 348 TWh of electricity by 2027, equivalent to the annual output of forty-four 1000-megawatt electric power plants. At today’s electricity prices, the total savings would be more than $30 billion!
How are LEDs Different?
LED lighting is very different from other lighting sources such as incandescent bulbs and CFLs. Key differences include:
Light Source – LEDs are the size of a speck of pepper. A mix of red, green, and blue LEDs is typically used to make white light.
Direction – LEDs emit light in a specific direction, reducing the need for reflectors and diffusers that can trap light. This makes LEDs more efficient for uses such as recessed downlights and task lighting. With other types of lighting, the light must be reflected to the desired direction, and more than half of the light may never leave the fixture.
Heat – LEDs emit very little heat, while incandescent bulbs release 90% of their energy as heat and CFLs release about 80% of their energy as heat.
Environmental – LEDs contain no mercury, and a recent Department of Energy study determined that LEDs have a much smaller environmental impact than incandescent bulbs. They also have an edge over compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), which is expected to grow over the next few years.
Wide Range of Uses – From traffic lights and vehicle brake lights to TVs and display cases, LEDs are used in so many applications because of their unique characteristics, which include compact size, ease of maintenance, resistance to breakage, and the ability to focus light in a single direction.
Longevity – Good-quality LED bulbs can have a useful life of 25,000 hours or more – so they can last more than 25 times longer than traditional light bulbs. That’s a life of more than three years, if run 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Residential LEDs – especially Energy Star rated products – use at least 75% less energy, and last 25 times longer, than incandescent lighting. Visions Integrated Technology Solutions offers LED lighting for a wide range of applications for in Johnson City, TN homeowners, including:
Kitchen Under-Cabinet Lighting – Because LEDs are small and directional, they are ideal for lighting kitchen countertops. The color can appear more cool or blue than is typically desirable in a kitchen, and some fixtures can exhibit excessive shadowing, so it’s important to compare products to find the best fixture for your space. Visions Integrated Technology Solutions can help you determine the best LED products to use for your in Johnson City, TN kitchen.
Recessed Downlights – Recessed downlighting is commonly used in residential kitchens, hallways, and bathrooms, and also in office and commercial settings. LED technology can decrease downlight wattage by 75% or more.
Home Theater Lighting – LED lighting can help set the perfect mood in your home theater, to deliver a full-on immersive entertainment experience to your family and guests. LED lighting strips in the floor or baseboards can guide you safely in and out of the room while it’s darkened, and provide extra visual impact.
