General information.
At, we want to make sure you get the best possible type of light for the least amount of money. The strip light fixtures that we carry are for the most part formed in the USA and always UL listed. There’s a few that we have that are imported, but we do our best to sell USA made products whenever possible. Most of the time these are surface mount to almost any ceiling or wall situation, and they’re easy to attach to such surfaces. It’s the application of flexible strip lights that make it a natural selection for a wide variety of lighting situations. People often see these as shop lights, and that would be true, but it’s so much more than that. They can be used for general lighting to get the most extensive spread of light possible in a low ceiling application. Typically a lower ceiling needs to have the maximum light range and that’s always been right with the fluorescent fixtures, and now it’s gone over to LED technology. Keep in mind though if you have a shallow application, sometimes the florescent is still the better way to go because of the spread of light that it has. There are still many fluorescent light fixtures available of this type as well. But most people want to use LED strips because it’s going to save them a lot of energy regardless of the application. You’ll also find these to be good for accent lighting, display lighting, both indoor and outdoor. When used with other types of light fixtures in a facility, you can get a complete lighting upgrade that’s going to save you a lot of money in the future.

Saving money.
LED strip lights are usually a part of the complete energy overhaul and lighting upgrade that’s going to give people excellent illumination while giving them the lowest cost of lighting operation that they can have. If you’re thinking about doing an upgrade, keep in mind that many electric utility rebates sometimes apply to this type of light fixture. Sometimes it’s based on wattage or possibly a flat rate rebate. If you’re unsure whether your area has rebates, we can help you discover which ones might apply to you or put you in a direction where you can find exactly what you can get and save. Make sure to download our free Excel spreadsheet which gives you an estimate of how much money you can save by going to more efficient lighting. It’s on the left-hand column of our website, and you can input your existing lighting system compared to a new lighting system that you would get from us. For this type of lighting, many people find that they’re going to save a lot in electrical costs and the paybacks that they get will sometimes be as low as months, but for most applications including commercial lighting, it’s probably somewhere between one and three years. There’s never been a better time to consider going to a more efficient lighting source. LEDs have given the opportunity for people to get 75 percent energy savings over existing HID lighting and a little bit less with fluorescent depending on how it’s applied. There are even some programs where you can finance your new equipment through energy savings that you get every month. It makes it about as painless as it can get. No matter which way you go, you will enjoy more significant energy savings that hit your bottom line directly.

Retrofit kits are easy and low cost.
The other option for people is not necessarily to replace the whole fixture but to use one of our retrofit kits and keep the existing light housing. When doing this, you reduce the cost of your initial investment and get a payback usually faster than getting a whole new light fixture. There’s never been a better time to consider going to something like an LED strip light when so many the incentives are right and the paybacks are going to be excellent. But one of the things you need to think about is the color temperature, will you want something that’s a warm white or possibly a cool white or even a daylight color which many people like for commercial lighting applications. That seems to be the choice because it offers a light that’s very similar to outside noontime daylight which our eyes best respond to. The peaks in the spectrum of red, green and blue produce a light that gives us a better visual acuity, and for many people, it makes the light more comfortable and easier to see under.

More or less for my space.
One of the other questions that people have commonly asked us is how many light fixtures they may need for their current lighting situation. They want to know what the results are before there’s any installation. And as a part of ordering light fixtures from us, we can provide a free lighting layout so you can get an idea of how many light fixtures you’ll need and how many footcandles that you’ll arrive at the end of the upgrade. That way you can make sure that you’re going to get good lighting along with the energy efficiency that the accountant in the company may like. We always say, if you get all the energy savings in the world but have poor lighting. As a result, you haven’t saved anything. What you might gain in electrical savings, you’ll probably lose in employee productivity or increase sales, and all that needs to be taken into account. Good lighting is more than just getting energy savings, and we want to make sure that when you upgrade that you genuinely get all possible satisfactory outcomes. There’s no reason you can’t save a lot of energy today and get a good lighting job. So we can run a layout that will tell you exactly where to place the fixtures and what the result will be. To some degree, it is an estimate, but it’s very close as to what you’ll get at a minimum if you change over to more efficient lighting.
