LED spelled out with LED's

LEDs can be a powerful source of lighting in many different colors.

Do you want to save on your electric bill, improve the efficiency of your home, and cut back on required maintenance? LED technology has provided a way to do all of these things while still being an affordable option for the average homeowner and Apex Handyman Service can help Chico residents get there.

So what is LED?

Homeowners in the Chico area have probably heard the term but might not be familiar with what it actually is or does. LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. Basically, it is a small solid light bulb that is much more efficient at delivering light than previous methods. The fact that these bulbs don’t contain any filament or gas makes them quite a bit more rugged and durable than your standard incandescent or fluorescent light bulbs.

That’s great, but why should you care?

This efficiency and durability means savings for you! With an average lifespan of 50,000 hours, that means you can run this type of bulb 24 hours a day/7 days a week for 6 years without having to change it out! These type of bulbs are incredibly energy efficient and consume about 90% less energy than your average incandescent light bulb.

How safe is it?

Safety is also another great factor to take into consideration when thinking about retrofitting your home to LED lighting. LED lights produce almost no heat in comparison to incandescent bulbs (which releases about 90% of it’s energy in the form of heat). This fact greatly reduces your risk of fires or burns from hot bulbs. As technology improves, so should the safety of your home.
