When LED lights first hit the market, the technology was extremely impressive but so was the price tag. Now it’s possible to find LED lights for much less, but how do you find the right product without compromising quality? Here are a few things to look for when making a decision about LED lighting:
Look for Energy Star Ratings
Energy Star is a program designed by the government to provide consumers with a rating system by which to buy credible, efficient products that benefit the environment. Quality LED lights will qualify for Energy Star approval. EcoLite surpasses Energy Star’s efficiency standards.
Read the fine print of your prospective LED distributor’s warranty. Most LED warranties are limited and do not cover the driver. This bothers us a little, which is why we are the only company in the nation that provides an unlimited, 50,000hour/10-year, non-prorated warranty for its products.
Find the Right Application
At home, bulb mounts can look pretty similar, but not all bulbs can fit the same fixture. It’s important to know the correct size every fixture so you don’t buy a case of the wrong bulbs. This is the situation your LED partner should help you avoid in a project.
Retrofitting is a proven way to help LED buyers select the right product for any situation. For example, choosing between area and parking fixtures, corn retrofit lamps, high bay fixtures, and post top fixtures and poles may be a daunting task if you are unfamiliar with the differences. This is why we provide certified energy experts to assist you in making the right choice, the first time.
R&D and Q&A
With such an innovative and customizable range of LED lights, your partner should have Research & Development (R&D) and Quality Assurance (Q&A) systems in place to ensure the product you purchase is trustworthy and certified. A partner with an R&D program is highly involved in leading the industry forward and will be able to assist you no matter the circumstance. A partner with a Q&A system is committed to producing quality products, every time.
At EcoLite, our partners come first, which is why we have both R&D and Q&A systems in place.
Making the switch to LED can be a costly move, which is why many companies haven’t yet. In truth, retrofitting LED to your project or facility can be done at zero-cost. You just need a partner who is willing to work with you on a payment schedule that benefits your budget.
