4 In The Air with RAB

0

RAB has a new program for companies that want to replace their inefficient parking lot lights called  “4 In the Air “. Angersteins will order you 4 FREE lights that you install and keep at no charge for 2 months. If you don’t like them, return them to us. If you decide to keep them – we will bill you for them.

Call us for an appointment today. We also stock RAB’s LED wall packs. All RAB LED fixtures have a 100,000 hour lifespan based on IES LM-80 results and TM-21 calculations.

We took down our parking lot lights, three 400 watt metal halide bulbs, replaced with 78 watt LED lights by RAB.

Lighting - LED

At 100,000 hours, light output drops to 70% of initial output. But even at 70%, the LEDs are still
going strong, with a difference that is only subtly discernable to the human eye.

Don’t Waste Time Changing Bulbs
Instead, use LEDs, which last 25 times longer than regular incandecent bulbs.
 
 
RELIABILITY: The life span of an LED bulb is 25,000 hours
 

  • While most CFLs (compact fluorescent lights) cannot be dimmed and many can flicker, LEDs (light emitting diodes) use solid-state technology, which allows for dimming and eliminates flickering. LED lights can withstand extremely cold conditions, so they are very durable, which is one of the reasons LED lights are so popular for outdoor lighting applications.
  • LEDs turn on instantly, so there is no warm-up time. In fact, they are ideal for uses where there is a need for frequent “on/off” cycling. This is an advantage over fluorescent lamps, which fail faster when turned on and off often.
  • LED light bulbs do not contain breakable filaments or glass, making them shock-resistant, unlike fluorescent and incandescent bulbs, which are fragile.
  • Most important of all is the fact that LED light bulbs last 25 times longer than the old-fashioned incandescent bulbs. Instead of 1,000 hours, which is the typical rated life of standard incandescent bulbs, the rated life of LEDs is usually 25,000 hours or more. (The rated life of CFLs is about 9,000 hours.) This makes the LED light bulb cost-effective in the long run.
  • LED lighting can save up to 85 percent of the electricity used by incandescent bulbs and up to 50 percent of electricity used by fluorescents.
  • Unlike the old-fashioned incandescents, which waste 90 percent of the energy they use by giving off heat, LED bulbs do not create heat. Since LED light bulbs produce significantly less heat than incandescent bulbs, they reduce the need for air conditioning in the home.
  • While it’s true that LED light bulbs are more expensive, they provide real cost savings because they consume less energy – resulting in lower energy bills.

It’s Time to Take Advantage of the Savings with LED Lighting

0

The benefits of LED lighting in your home or office are being heralded everywhere – the local papers, magazines, blogs, websites, and just recently in the New York Times – see our post on facebook.com/angersteins.  So, what are you waiting for? Now is the time. And here are the reasons why you should start changing out your inefficient lighting for the rightfully popular LED.

LED - Lighting Design

 

1.)   Long-lasting – LED bulbs last up to 10 times as long as compact fluorescents, and far longer than typical incandescent bulbs.

2.)   Durable – since LEDs do not have a filament, they are not damaged under circumstances when a regular incandescent bulb would be broken. Because they are solid, LED bulbs hold up well to jarring and bumping.

3.)   Cool – these bulbs do not cause heat build-up; LEDs produce 3.4 btu’s/hour, compared to 85 for incandescent bulbs. Common incandescent bulbs get hot and contribute to heat build-up in a room. LEDs prevent this heat build-up, thereby helping to reduce air conditioning costs in the home.

4.)   Mercury-Free – no mercury is used in the manufacturing of LEDs

5.)   More efficient – LED light bulbs use only 2-17 watts of electricity – that is 1/3rd to 1/30th of what an incandescent or CFL bulb uses. LED bulbs save electricity, remain cool and save money on replacement costs since LED bulbs last so long.

6.)   Low maintenance – since LED last so long, there is no climbing on ladders to constantly change bulbs

7.)   Cost-effective – although LEDs are initially expensive, the cost is recouped over time and in energy savings. The cost of LED bulbs has gone down considerably in the last few years, and is continuing to go down. Today, there are many new LED light bulbs for use in the home, and the cost is becoming less of an issue.

At Angerstein’s Lighting we see these benefits helping our customers every day. At local clothing and shoe boutique, Peter Kate, they had problems with the halogen bulbs giving off so much heat that they had to keep their doors open – even in the winter months. Replacing the very hot and inefficient halogen lamps with LEDs made the store much more comfortable. Sandy Conley, manager of Angerstein’s Design Center, often works with local churches, such as Limestone Presbyterian, Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd and St John’s Episcopal, to replace their inefficient lighting in the naves and sanctuaries. Lowering their energy costs allows them to give more to their community outreach programs. Brenda Robinett, who at Angerstein’s works with many of the local landscape designers, has noticed a huge increase in the sales of LED landscape lights. “Landscape light bulbs go out quite frequently for many reasons – heat build-up, bad electrical connections causing shorts, lawnmowers hitting the lights continuously. With the prices of LED landscape light fixtures coming down, it is easier for us to sell the low-maintenance benefits to the customer.”

In this day in age, is there anyone who does not have recessed lighting in their home?

With recessed lighting comes heat; with heat comes bulbs blowing out quickly; with bulbs going comes the chore of changing them.

This is where Solais LED bulbs make a huge difference!

Lightbulb Basics

 

 

Bulb Basics
Beginning in 2012, new light bulb efficiency standards will affect which bulbs are available in stores. Here’s what you need to know.
By January 2012, all new medium screw-base bulbs will have more comprehensive labeling to help consumers understand and compare each type of light bulb. Information on new bulb labels includes: lumens (brightness), estimated yearly cost, life expectancy, light appearance and energy used. For more detailed information, go to www.LumenNow.org.

 

Contrary to what many people think, standard incandescent bulbs are not being banned, they are simply going to be more efficient. The bulbs most commonly used by consumers today will not meet the new requirements.Over the next two years, the new requirements will affect 100-watt, 75-watt, 60-watt and 40-watt medium screw-base incandescent light bulbs. These bulbs will be replaced with more efficient halogen bulbs, which are a type of incandescent.Timeline for implementing new standards for incandescent bulbs in the United States:

  • Jan. 1, 2012     100 Watt
  • Jan. 1, 2013     75 Watt
  • Jan. 1, 2014     60 Watt & 40 Watt
