LED Bulbs for the Home!

LED bulbs for the home might seem like an expensive proposition! Actually, they are quite affordable when one looks at the entire picture. Many homeowners are sitting back and waiting for LED bulbs to come down in price before they make the plunge into this new technology. Another reason for delaying purchase is because many homeowners simply don’t understand the true value and benefits of LED lighting. The wait is over, now is the time to start changing over to LED lamps in YOUR household. First and foremost, LED prices ARE dropping and becoming affordable options these days. Also, some LED bulbs are lower priced than others because of certain features that may not be required……..such as dimming. Take a survey of your home and determine which lighting systems are on dimmers and which lighting systems are not. If dimming is not required, there are now available lower priced “non-dimmable” LED bulbs. You get the same quality of dimmable LED lamps, yet save in price since you are not paying for that dimming feature! BuyRite LED Lighting offers a complete family of household LED bulbs. Just match the LED lamps with the same shape and light output equivalency of the existing incandescent bulbs or halogen bulbs currently in use. The only effort it takes is to remove those inefficient incandescent energy guzzlers and screw-in LED bulbs………that’s it!

Now onto the real benefits of switching to LED lamps. Become an educated consumer with a few simple facts. First, the biggest portion of your lighting dollars spent goes toward your Utility Company……..yes your electric bill. Let us explain……….an inexpensive 60 watt incandescent bulb with an average life of 1,000 hours will consume a total of 60KWH. At a national KWH rate of about $.12/KWH that ONE bulb will cost you $7.20 in electricity over it’s 1,000 hour life! If you replaced that bulb with an 8 watt (as an example) Household LED Bulb, you would only spend $.96 in electricity over a 1,000 hour time period! But wait, we are not done yet. The LED bulb has a life rating of 25,000 hours vs. only 1,000 hours for that incandescent bulb! So, at a savings of $6.24 per 1,000 hours the LED bulb will save a total of $156.00 over it’s 25,000 hour life. Now that’s amazing!

Ok, we know what you are thinking………. Read More »

LED Lamps for Jewelry Stores: A great choice to save money and show off your best jewelry!

Attention jewelry store retailers….want to reduce your operating costs and showcase your best jewelry at the same time? Lighting is so very important to draw customer’s attention to your products for sale. Any Retailer will agree that properly merchandising their products is key to increasing sales and steering your store traffic to the right products. Lighting is a key factor in planning your store layout scheme. You want customers to feel comfortable, yet also be able to see your jewelry in the “best light!”. Most likely you have a combination of light sources for general illumination plus also for accent lighting. In typical jewelry stores, designers specify lighting fixtures that enhance the shopping experience with the proper level of light and very important the proper color of light. Halogen sources are very common in jewelry stores because they provide crisp white light to enhance gold, silver, and diamonds. A very often used fixture is a track system with 12 volt MR-16 halogen lamps which offer excellent accent lighting and a color temperature of 3000K, which is slightly cooler than standard incandescent. Overhead general illumination typically consists of recessed down lights with either warm incandescent flood lamps (2700K) or halogen flood lamps (3000K). Some retail stores also like to utilize small table lamps like those used in living rooms in homes because they provide a nice touch for their customers and makes them feel “at home.” They are usually placed in strategic locations such as on top of counters or at desk work areas. Wall sconces are also found in jewelry stores to provide a pleasing perimeter. Sconces typically contain decorative candle lamps (halogen being most popular). These same decorative lamps are often seen in chandeliers to give that “quality look” in the store.

Now that we are familiar with the most common types of light sources used in jewelry stores, let’s make some smart choices that enable retailers to maintain the look and feel that is necessary while at the same time dramatically reducing their operating costs……….electricity to operate the lighting systems. Electrical costs typically represent approx. 88% of a store owner’s lighting cost. Not to mention the maintenance costs associated with frequent changing of burned out light bulbs! Maintenance costs average approx. 8% of the store owner’s lighting costs. Nobody wants burned out bulbs in their store to detract from a visually appealing scheme, nor do they want to deal with the nuisance of changing bulbs when they do fail. 

LED Lamps from BuyRite LED Lighting can solve all these issues. Their on-line store stocks the LED products you need to save big! LED Lamps offer extreme long life, excellent color equivalent to the existing bulbs you are now using and most of all reduce your electrical costs due to their low wattage consumption compared to traditional bulbs.

LED Lamps for Restaurants: A Good Choice to Save Money

Without question, LED Lamps for restaurants are a great choice for restaurant owners looking to save money on their electric bill and reduce maintenance costs. Typically, restaurants have a variety of traditional light sources in their facility. They are used to illuminate the general areas and quite often used to create task lighting for specific purposes. Examples of task lighting would be over tables, over bars, perimeter accent lighting and in food preparation areas. Restaurant owners should be cognizant of how lighting can enhance the dining experience. The overall mood and ambiance should be subtle and inviting and provide a warm ambiance for diners.

restaurant image

Many restaurants utilize various objects to enhance their environment such as wall pictures, deco objects, and other various means to convey a particular image. So it is important to illuminate those entities or venues with appropriate yet “Cost Saving” techniques. Most
important, restaurant owners do not want short life lamps (bulbs) failing while patrons are enjoying a great experience.

So, the answer is LED lighting. With incredible long life and reduced power consumption, owners can save big time and reduce the annoyance of changing bulbs that constantly fail. LED Lamps last for years and usually save 50% to 80% in energy costs which is the biggest chunk of restaurant owners’s cost of light.

It is quite simple to choose the right LED bulb. Just look for the same shape and light output equivalency of the existing lamps being used. A simple retrofit takes place……..remove the existing lamps, and replace it with an LED Lamp. Examples might be: A-Lamp or Candle LED’s in sconces, Candle LED Lamps in chandeliers, BR30 or BR40 LED Lamps in downlights. LED’s are available to replace most lamp types used in restaurant lighting fixtures. It’s that simple!

Be sure to choose the appropriate color temperature to match what is being replaced. If replacing incandescent or halogen sources, choose a warm color temperature (2700K to 3000K). Most restaurants prefer the warm color (ambiance) of incandescent. Today’s LED Lamps can equal that look and actually provide a better quality of light.

LED Lamps, even though more costly than traditional lamp types, will provide excellent payback due to their low power consumption and long life. So the time is now to switch. See a complete offering that meets your needs at: BuyRite LED Lighting. Did we mention this is your opportunity to go “Green” with LED!
