When we go house-hunting, we tend to look around the house judging them by their space, location and the floor plan, forgetting the impact the lighting of the home can have.
Of course interior and exterior lighting can be changed, but do you really know what type of lighting is the best for your home?
LED lighting installation
The lighting in your home is a key feature that can add a sense of freshness and make it feel modern and clean when done correctly.
LED (light emitting diode) lights are known to be very efficient, 90% better than incandescent lights, and have extremely long lives.
Coming in several different tones and colours, you can easily adjust the lighting of your home to your liking.
It is so much better for both the environment and for you, there really is no reason not to change to LED lights.
Energy Saving Lighting
One of the main benefits of upgrading your lighting in the interior and exterior of your home is that LED lights are much more cost effective and better for the environment.
How are LED lights cost effective?
As LED lights last longer, you replace them less often, reducing the cost and the amount of waste going to our landfills.
Other types of lights including incandescent lamps and halogen lights are very ineffective—lasting from about 6 weeks to 2 years—whereas LED lights last for about 15 to 20 years.
Another disadvantage of using incandescent and halogen lights in your home is that they waste a lot more energy than LED lights.
Most of the energy consumed by incandescent and halogen lights is lost as heat. If you consider the hot Toowoomba summer days, you don’t want to be adding more heat to your room from these lights!
Alternatively, LED lights work to conserve the energy they consume and have a lot less heat radiating from them therefore less energy waste.
Exterior lighting installation
Lighting in the exterior of your home is an important value adding factor for homeowners in Toowoomba to consider.
Installing appropriate lighting at the entrance of your home and on your patio or veranda will not only make your home more inviting and usable in the evening time, but lighting in the exterior of your home will bring you a sense of safety, and will help to deter intruders as well.
Installing lighting in the exterior of your home will make like that little bit easier too.
Ever come home to a dark entrance and have to fumble your way through your bag to get the keys and try to unlock your front door in the dark?
It can be a lot easier with ample lighting at the entrance of your home.
Installing LED lights can add value to your home, making it look brighter, more modern and fresher.
Through using LED lights, you not only save money due to the longer lifespan of LED light bulbs and the energy efficiency in their design which also contributes to a cleaner, healthier environment thanks to less waste.
Lighting in the interior and exterior of your home is a simple but very effective way to add value tot your home, modernise it and save money in the long run with smarter, cleaner, energy efficient solutions: LED lights.
