Lighting season is here! Starting with Daylight saving time and lasting throughout the winter and the new year, lighting season is when we see a lot of businesses and homeowners upgrading indoor and outdoor spaces. To get prepared for this season, we’re recommending our best picks of LED Lighting below!
Lighting Facts – Understanding the label and choosing the right bulb
Finding the right light bulb for your home can seem difficult. You may notice that each bulb comes with a lighting facts label with different information about each bulb. This information is extremely valuable but not everyone fully understands it.
The Lighting Facts label is designed directly after the Nutrition Facts label and mandated by the Federal Trade Commission. With the information provided, we will help you to understand each part of the label so you can select the perfect light bulbs for your needs.
Using LEDs in Modern Lighting Designs
LED lighting fixtures are quickly gaining popularity, as people realize that they are a great choice for both residential and commercial settings. While there is no denying that LED lights are a tad bit more expensive than their traditional counterparts, it is also a fact that LEDs can cut electricity bills by up to 75%. Additionally, LEDs will need far less replacements due to better longevity and fewer maintenance needs. So that one-time expense doesn’t look so bad, does it?
Color Temperature Explained
Surprisingly, the color temperature of a light bulb has nothing to do with how hot the bulb gets! Color temperature is actually a method of describing the color characteristics of light. LED color temperatures have various ranges, including Warm, Cool, Natural and Daylight. Each color temperature has its own distinct look and feel. The color temperature is measured in Kelvins (K). The higher the Kelvins, the cooler the temperature, and the lower Kelvins, the warmer the temperature. The range for Kelvins for LED lights is from 2700K to 6500K.

Commercial outdoor LED floodlight fixtures give off a bright white clean light, and typically come with a 120 degree beam angle or more to illuminate larger areas. They are widely used across commercial facilities including warehouses, security perimeters, as well as stadiums for enhanced sports lighting.
