LED Can Light Upgrades Lenexa, KS & Kansas City, MO
Options for indoor lighting have evolved over the years to keep in line with changes in design and technology. Regardless of the age of your home, it likely contains a mixture of hanging fixtures, wall fixtures, and can lights. Environmental and ecological concerns have lead to further changes to the types of bulbs used in these fixtures, including the phasing out of the incandescent bulb in favor of more energy-efficient alternatives. If your home currently has older can lighting fixtures, you can easily and affordably upgrade to LED can lights and experience the benefits of this latest technology.

Benefits of LED Can Lights
Smart home technology and environmental awareness have created a movement towards more environmentally friendly products for the home, including LED can lights. The benefits of upgrading your existing can lighting or installing new LED can lights as part of a renovation include:
According to the Department of Energy, LED lights use at least 75 percent less energy and last 25 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs. Multiply those savings by all your recessed fixtures, and they can have a significant impact on your monthly energy bills and environmental footprint.
When you compare the average lifespan of a 60W incandescent bulb at 1,200 hours to a 10W LED bulb at 25,000 hours or more, the choice becomes clear.
Changing your bulbs less often is an appealing feature, but the convenience continues as LED can lights produce full light the instant you turn them on, unlike CFL bulbs which take several moments to heat up and illuminate your space.
LED lights produce little to no heat, making them safer to touch and reducing or eliminating the risk associated with overheating and the potential for fire. Unlike CFL bulbs, LED light bulbs contain no mercury (a highly toxic metal).
LED can lights are dimmable for enhanced lighting control and have a lower profile which offers greater flexibility with regards to placement.
Traditional can lights require the installation of insulated boxes in order to provide adequate separation between incandescent bulbs and your insulation. LED can lights can be installed virtually anywhere along the ceiling and are simply connected to a transformer in the ceiling cavity located near the light.
While a longer lifespan results in fewer light bulbs in our nation’s landfills, decreased energy usage also helps cut down on the consumption of fossil fuels, making LED lighting a viable environmentally friendly alternative to traditional can lighting.
Superior Light Quality
LED lights come in a range of color temperatures to suit your individual needs and preferences and provide a clean, clear source of light free from damaging infrared or UV rays.
