LED lights offer many advantages over other types, such as halogen or fluorescent lights. This especially applies to the kitchen. LED lights produce a high number of lumens and a low number of watts. This means that LED’s light up a room without consuming a lot of power.
The low power consumption keeps the bulb from producing excessive heat. Due to the appliances that rely on heat, the kitchen often stays warmer than the rest of the house. Make sure your lights don’t contribute to this heat. LED lights brighten up your kitchen without increasing the temperature. This contributes to a more energy efficient home overall.
In addition, HOMEnhancements’ under-cabinet lights include a dimmer. This allows you to save even more energy by controlling the brightness of your bulbs. LED lights do cost more initially than other types of lights. However, their energy efficiency saves you money in the long run.
When installing under cabinets, you need to consider the power options. Under-cabinet lights can get their power in three different ways:
A line voltage light goes directly into the electrical system. A low voltage plug-in light typically goes in a power outlet. A battery-powered light relies on AA batteries instead of the home’s electricity.
HOMEnhancements uses line voltage cabinet lights which require a 120 Volt. AC grounded electrical supply line. These easy-to-install hardwired lights include mounting hardware and efficiently brighten the dark spaces under your cabinet.
