LED Lighting for Your Home

The latest in lighting technology is a residential recessed can light made from LED lights. Light Emitting Diodes or LED lights are a once-in-a-generation breakthrough that delivers the warmth and luxurious color of incandescent lamps along with all the cost savings and other benefits of eco-friendly LED technology.

Cree, Inc. is leading the LED lighting revolution and setting the stage to obsolete the incandescent light bulb through the use of energy-efficient, environmentally friendly LED lighting.

Here are a few great facts from Cree, Inc. you should know about LED’s:

1. You may never change another light bulb.
The LR6 lasts more than 20 years (50,000 hours) under normal use. That makes life simpler, especially in hard-to-reach installations.
2. Look at a home in a different light.
The quality of light from the LR6 is unmatched. There's no harsh glare, just warm, beautiful light.
3. The heat is off.
Unlike incandescent fixtures, the LR6 is comfortable to the touch, and it reduces the burden and cost of the air conditioning system.
4. Great light has never been so green.
The new LR6 uses 85% less energy than a conventional incandescent and less than half that of a comparable fluorescent. And unlike any fluorescent, the LR6 contains no harmful mercury.
5. Shedding light on lower costs.
Savings like these mean the LR6, in typical use, more than pays for itself in electricity savings.

LED’s are on the way to being the newest must have in homes. You'll never again have to choose between inefficient incandescents and fluorescents that contain mercury. LED lighting is safe, environmentally friendly and contains no toxic mercury.

You can choose between warm lighting, which gives a traditional and luxurious feeling that homeowners have come to expect, or cool lighting which creates an effective work environment or brings a contemporary look to a home. With Cree’s LED true color-rich light, they have all the benefits of incandescent lighting without the high energy cost or environmental impact.
