Keep reading to learn how creating a smarter more energy-efficient home can help you achieve your resolutions this year.
Easy Swaps to Start Saving Energy
Before diving into the different types of LED lights for your home, it is helpful to think about bulb shapes and sizes, brightness level, shade of white light, and the cost of LED bulbs to ensure you purchase the bulb that is right for your needs. If you’re looking for quick ways to make your home eco-friendlier this year, replacing your old incandescent bulbs with general-purpose LED A19 bulbs is a good place to start. These LED light bulbs work in multiple applications such as bedroom lamps, floor lamps, pendants, and ceiling fixtures. They come in various shades of white light and are available in a glass or plastic finish. Be sure and check the sockets of your fixtures to be sure they are a match. The most common fixture socket and compatible bulb base for A19 bulbs are medium or E26.
Take Care of Your Loved Ones
Nothing says love and provides comfort more than food. To Puck lights, bars, panels, and strip lights can all be placed in different locations of your kitchen and synch together if they are within 50 feet of each other. You can even add a Smart Wi-Fi Bridge to make your lights smart and control from your smartphone or with voice control. All the convenience you need to dedicate more time to your loved ones is done with the help of OneSync lights and accessories.
Make Your Home Entertainment Ready
If one of your priorities is developing closer relationships with family and friends, you’ll want to be sure your home is prepared for social events and spontaneous intimate gatherings this year. Get the conversation going with an eye-catching bold vintage-style LED bulb. Or, create a welcoming feel with the charming look of a large vintage-style bulb. Our oversized bulbs come in various shapes, glass finish, white light, and filament style options. They add a decorative touch to any space, so your home can be the destination for your family and friends to gather all year long.
Enjoy Your Downtime Without Feeling Guilty
Bedrooms and living rooms are areas where people usually gather or relax after work or on the weekends. Your lighting helps you get into a mindset in which you can practice yoga, laugh with your loved ones, or shake off the stress from the previous year. Vintage-style bulbs that emit 2100k, 2700K, or 3000K light are especially useful to create an enjoyable atmosphere and their classic design complements any design style. These classic bulbs are an easy makeover project anyone can take on and are best enjoyed when placed in pendants, wall sconces, chandeliers, lamps, or any fixture that exposes the bulb. The traditional look of Edison bulbs is married with modern energy-saving LED technology so you can enjoy your downtime without worrying about accruing high energy costs. Feit Electric vintage bulbs range in shapes, sizes, filament styles, glass finish, and white light options.
Create a Home Spa Sanctuary
The bathroom is not only an area where people prepare for the outside world but can also be a refuge dedicated to self-care. The type of lighting will depend on the activity at hand, so it is important to upgrade to lighting that can work with your day. Cooler light helps you feel energized to get ready for the day. Use 4000K Cool White or 5000K Daylight when you want to see the fine details during your morning routine. Wind down with 2700K Soft White or 3000K Bright White to enjoy a relaxing environment. You can switch between light options with the flip of a wall switch or by using the presets on the product.
Light Up Your DIY Space
Now more than ever people are looking to dedicate their time to something meaningful to them such as starting a new hobby. The garage is the perfect space to get your new projects started. You’ll need crisp, 5000K Daylight lighting that gives you the energy to take on any project. LED garage lights with adjustable panels let you direct light exactly where you need it and installing them is as easy as screwing in a light bulb. Another option that adds bright lighting to your garage is smart Wi-Fi shop lights. These shop lights let you adjust the white light, brightness level and turn ON/OFF from your smartphone or with voice commands by connecting them to your Alexa, Google Assistant, or Siri Shortcuts.
