The light-emitting diodes (LEDs) light up immediately, like an incandescent bulb and is a source of light that is reliable, instantaneous, and can be dimmed accordingly. They last up to five times longer than the CFLs, which can literally last a lifetime. Moreover, these are user-friendly as they do not contain mercury and are available in soft, warm, and bright white hues. LEDs work well both indoors and outdoors because of their durability in the cold environment and they are safer, studier and easy to install.
What is your timeline? Last minute event lighting is not impossible, but we wouldn't recommend it. Suppliers might not have exactly what you need in stock and then your carefully crafted plan can start to fall to pieces. Allow enough time to shop around, and compare price of hires that include event production support and that all important insurance.
Will the Low Voltage LED lamps work with my current transformer? Low Voltage LED lamps are compatible with magnetic transformers utilized with VAC lighting. If you have an electronic transformer with a single LED lamp might not work due to its very low power consumption. To work properly, most of the electronic transformers need a minimum load more than the 3-watt utilized by our LED spot lights. While connecting some LED lamps to a single transformer, the load augments to such a point where the utilization of an electronic transformer is acceptable.
Consider the size of your kitchen and then identify areas where you need task lights. If you have a kitchen island, you will definitely want pendant lights over it. The size of the pendant must be in relative to the island size.
One of the more unique and visually-pleasing lighting techniques in decorative garden lighting is the use of fiber optics. Fiber optics is the science of transmitting light via optical fibers. Optical fibers are extruded cylinders of plastic or glass used to transmit light. All that is required to illuminate the optic fibers is a single light bulb; making fiber optic lighting an affordable garden lighting choice. Another great advantage of fiber optic lighting is that it uses no electrical current; therefore it is safe to place in and around water without danger of electrocution. Therefore, fiber optic lighting can be used to illuminate a garden pond, tree trunks and branches, shrubs, plant containers and even a patio deck.
