LED Kitchen Cupboard Lights
Kitchen cupboard lights can come in incandescent lighting, florescent lighting or LED lighting. LED lighting can give you benefits that more traditional lighting options simply cannot provide. Some of these benefits include:
- Long Lasting- LED lighting is made using the very latest in LED technology making these lights incredibly long lasting. These lights, depending on the specific light can last 20,000, 50,000, and 70,000 hours or more. LED lights can last years without ever needing to be changed.
- Energy Efficient- LED kitchen cupboard lighting is also highly energy efficient. LED lighting only uses a small fraction of the energy that more traditional lighting requires to operate. The fact that these lights use less energy means that you can save money on your energy bill. In addition, LED lighting also reduces the demand for lighting on the local energy company, which means that you can feel good that you are doing something good for the environment.
- Requires No Light Bulbs- LED lighting does not use light bulbs of any kind, which means that there are no light bulbs to change reducing the amount of maintenance these lights require. In fact, with the exception of an occasional dusting these lights don’t need any maintenance at all.
- Extremely Affordable- Many people still do not realize that LED lighting is actually extremely affordable. While these lights do initially cost a little bit more than your more traditional lighting choices they more than make up for that additional initial cost in the amount of money they save through by using less energy and not having any light bulbs to change. In fact, over a period of time these lights may actually be cheaper than those more traditional lighting options.
Due to the fact that LED lighting does need to be wired directly into your 240 electric main we recommend that you have you lights wired by a qualified electrician.
