Energy Efficient LED Lighting in Your New Home

Energy Efficient LED Lighting in Your New Home

LED lighting is just one energy-efficient feature you’ll get with an Ameri-Star Homes house!

LED lighting is becoming more and more popular in new construction homes. What exactly is LED lighting? “Light-emitting diode” lighting conducts electricity through a diode, a semi-conducting material. This technology is brilliant, especially for the kitchen, for several reasons. Here’s why you can look forward to the benefits of LED lighting in a customized Ameri-Star Homes home.

Truly Energy-Efficient

LED lighting is truly energy-saving, unlike incandescent or halogen technology. Unlike these competitors, LED lighting does not rely on heat to produce illumination. It converts virtually all of the electricity into light. Other forms of lighting turn some of that energy into heat. LEDs also use a lower wattage, meaning you won’t have to use as much energy to light your rooms in the first place. For example, an incandescent light bulb might use 60 watts, while an LED light bulb might use a shockingly low 10 watts.


You can also expect LED lighting to last for a very long time before you need to change the bulb. It outlasts incandescent and fluorescent lights by far; while these lights might last upwards of five years, one LED bulb can last for 20 long years.


The result is a cost cut like no other. Each case is different, so one cannot necessarily put a single number on how much someone might save. However, with the energy efficiency, low watt usage, and longevity of this lighting, one can expect to save hundreds of dollars over the years. When lighting takes up 15% of the annual cost of living, these savings are worth getting.

Aesthetically Pleasing

LED lighting comes in many stylish forms. It is excellent for recessed lighting, task lighting, and pendant lighting. One can customize even further with specific light temperatures for a cooler or warmer glow. Light bulbs themselves come in different shapes, such as standard, can, track, tube, and flood. One does not lack for choices with LED bulbs!

Easy Maintenance

In daily life, these lights are easy to maintain. They are simple to install, clean, and replace alike. Because they don’t produce heat, they won’t cause an accidental burn when touched. Ameri-Star Homes is happy to help you navigate your new home’s lighting as well as all other aspects to your satisfaction.
