Types of lighting:

You have 4 main types of lighting to consider when choosing a bulb for your home or business. They vary with initial cost, energy requirements, and longevity; and the expert Electricians at One Way Electric are here to assist you in sorting through the options.

Incandescent:

Incandescent bulbs are among the most popular and well known type of bulb. Their internal assembly is enclosed in a vacuum sealed glass bulb. The filaments on the insides glow white, suspended between two electrodes; but because of the lack of oxygen, does not burn while producing light. They have the shortest lasting time of about 700 to 1000 hrs.

Fluorescent:

This bulb also contains a partial vacuum; but in addition, mercury and phosphor vapors flow freely in the glass coils. When electricity excites the mercury vapor, it produces ultraviolet light. Then, the phosphorous vapor emits visible light caused by the UV light. These bulbs not only use a fraction of the energy, but can also last up to 10X longer than the previous incandescent bulbs. However, these bright lights can be quite harsh, so it is recommended by our electricians to have them in larger rooms such as kitchens, workshops, and great rooms.

LED:

A more recent developed form of lighting is this light-emitting diode. Electricity is converted to visible light using a semiconductor. Only being made available since the 1960’s, they produce low levels of light. They are more energy efficient compared to the later models, however they only produce directional light; similar to a flashlight. It very often consists of several individual LEDs clustered in an array to increase the light. While they are considerably more costly, it is suggested by the One Way Electric electricians to be used as under cabinet lighting or for illuminating controls.

Halogen:

While the halogen bulb is similar to the previous incandescent bulb, the differences produce a bulb that can endure a much higher temperature and create a whiter, brighter light. An inert gas and halogen element like iodine are what sets this bulb apart, also the lack of a vacuum like other bulbs. Amarillo electricians usually install these particular lights where they are not being directly looked into, such as recessed areas and under cabinets.

Lighting and Fans

Recessed lighting

Recessed lighting is the more modern form of lighting offices and houses. The newer models include features like “air-tight” enclosures; this new innovation has canceled older concerns of homes losing heated and cooled air into the attic. The cans now have a 5 inch diameter which is classified by electricians to be safe within insulation contact, or designation IC. This means they do not pose a heat threat to being in contact with the ceiling or insulation in the attic. They also contain thermal switches that can reset the light automatically. Making them safer in another way that the later models lacked. Another recent development in these lights that has caught the attention of most certified electricians has been the switch to LED lights, or solid state lights. These lights contain a built-in power supply, making them more compatible with 120 vac lines. These lights are energy efficient, and long lasting; saving you money! For more information about quotes for these lights installed please contact Nathan Hobbs with One Way Electric at (806)681-1217.

Track lighting

There are two different categories of track lighting, Please contact the One Way Electric team to discuss these differences in more detail, or to receive a quote for installation at (806) 681-1217. Both types of systems of track lighting have a mounted track, and moveable light fixtures. These fixtures are not only designed to be movable along the track but each individual fixture has a swiveling capability to illuminate art and other points of interest in a home or office.
The tracks supplying a 120 volt AC line current is the first category of track lighting to consider. On the higher end of the voltage scale these versatile track lighting can power low voltage fixtures and still be efficient by engaging a built-in power store; the main difference is that they also support the high voltage fixtures as well. The low voltage fixtures offer more variety in beam size and angles, and have different wattage specifications to fit your track lighting. Newer LED fixtures can be installed on higher voltage and lower voltage tracks; though they are more costly, these bulbs are not as harmful to to art fading and interior fabrics. A succeeding category of track supplies low voltage DC current; this track can only support the low voltage lamp fixtures.
Track lighting that has been professionally installed by our electricians can bring to life important objects and focal points in your home and office. Also because it is more efficient than lighting an entire area, it can fit in with your plan to conserve energy. Feel free to contact our professionals at One Way Electric for a quote.
