Local Electrician in Wilton, CT Offers Tips on Saving with LED Light Bulbs.
October 23, 2014
  Wilton, CT (PRWEB) October 23, 2014         It may be a good idea, as 2014 will mark the first year that light bulb manufacturers will officially stop making traditional 40 and 60- watt light bulbs, in favor of halogen, compact fluorescent, LED and high-efficiency incandescent bulbs.           Chestnut Electric, an electrical contractor based out of Wilton, CT, has all the information you need to know about LED lighting and the tips you can use to help you save money on your electric bill for this upcoming winter.     There are two basic methods of utilizing LED lighting. The first method is using light fixtures that are designed from the ground up as LED light fixtures, meaning that the LED light circuits are built right into/onto the fixture itself and there is no bulb to change or swap out. Previously, we at Chestnut Electric might have suggested to steer away for these electrical options, especially on the recessed lighting side, because they were new to electrical technology and the color quality was not quite there. While there are still issues and potential additional costs involved in dimming proprietary LED fixtures (a separate topic in and of itself), we believe that they have now become a very viable option.         The second method of utilizing LED lighting is that of the LED "retrofit" bulb.
