Give Your Home a Well-Deserved Lighting Upgrade

Replace the Inexpensive Cans with Efficient and Flexible LED Downlights

Older homes in Salt Lake City certainly have their charms. They often have features and touches you can't find in modern designs and constructions. One area that may lack that charm, however, is the lighting. Depending on the age of the home, if it has ceiling downlighting, it's likely to be of the inexpensive "can" variety that you can find at any Utah Home Depot. Even newer homes in just the past ten years often have this lighting, often coupled with somewhat efficient but maddening CFL bulbs. 

However, there is an easy way to replace this older lighting with higher performance, efficient, and long-lasting LED lighting upgrades. Read on below to learn more!

The LED Advantage

LED lighting offers numerous advantages over traditional lighting options in just about every aspect. LED lights last significantly longer than their traditional counterparts, meaning you'll spend less time replacing bulbs and more time enjoying your beautifully lit home. They are also up to 80% more energy-efficient, which can lead to substantial savings on your electricity bill over time. But perhaps the most exciting advantage of LED lighting is its flexibility. With a wide range of brightness levels, color temperatures, and aiming options, LED lights can be customized to create the perfect ambiance for any room.

Upgrading Downlights

If you want to replace those existing cans, suppliers like American Lighting offer various options. For instance, their ADVANTAGE SELECT series is a great choice for retrofitting old can lights. These models operate at 120V AC, emit up to a super-bright 1200 to 2000 lumens, and consume up to 25W of power, a fraction of what you'd be replacing. These are also offered in a range of 5 color temperatures, from warm to cool, to create the desired ambiance for your space. With an excellent Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 90+, these lights will show off your home's true colors. Available in 4 and 6-inch versions, these can replace the most common cans in homes without modifying your ceilings.

Surface Mount Options

You can also change the look of your ambient ceiling lighting with surface mount fixtures. American Lighting's NIEVE series are available in different sizes and can mount to standard junction boxes in ceilings. Like the ADVANTAGE Series, they feature up to 1200 lumens of brightness, high CRI, and similar efficiency.  

Spectrum Lighting is another great option, offering both downlights and wall-mounted lights. Their surface-mounted fixtures are 4 inches wide and emit up to 2000 lumens, providing semi-direct illumination. Additionally, Spectrum offers LED lights with 360 RGB colors, allowing you to choose whichever shade and hue fits your space. With Spectrum Lighting, you can have fun creating vibrant game rooms, cozy lounge spaces, and effervescent entertainment areas.  

The Convenience of Lighting Control

Taking your lighting upgrades a step further, consider integrating a lighting control system. Lighting control systems offer a host of benefits for efficiency, ambiance, and convenience. They allow you to control all the lights in your home from a single interface, enabling you to turn off unnecessary lights and save energy. With pre-set scenes, you can easily adjust the lighting to suit different activities or times of day, enhancing the ambiance of your home. Plus, with features like remote control and scheduling, you can ensure your lights are on when you need them and off when you don't, adding a layer of convenience to your daily life.
