How Much Can You Save By Switching to LED Bulbs?

While our R&D department is constantly working to improve the efficiency and performance of our American-made LED lights, our IT department also strives to make it easier for you to find just what you need online! That’s why we’re updating the LED Savings Calculator, one of the handiest features at LEDWaves.com.

The LED Bulb Savings Calculator shows you how much you can save and how quickly you can hit the return on your investment. It compares replacement LED lights with the your current lighting technology, factoring in hours of use and electricity costs. And only LED Waves’ calculator includes additional (non-required) fields for the cost and time for maintenance team to replace burnt-out bulbs – making this tool especially useful for professional facility managers in addition to smart homeowners.

Here’s a snapshot at the value that the average homeowner can save by replacing four 75W halogen downlight fixtures with the new 6″ PR15 UltraThin LED Recessed 4-Light Kit:

New! PR15 SQUARE UltraThin LED Recessed Light

Professional lighting designers of the world rejoice: We are now offering the PR15 UltraThin LED Recessed Light as a square-shaped fixture!

This addition comes in response to our many LED Waves clients who were looking for a square version of the best-selling PR15 Round Ultra Thin LED Recessed Light. The original PR15 fixture was particularly popular with high end residential and commercial lighting designers due in to its really pleasant quality of light: strong yet free of hotspots, thanks to its finely etched diffuser.

Professional lighting installers also appreciate the unique low profile (less than ¾ inch in height) of the PR15, allowing it to fit in tight spots. Both models feature the same simple, forgiving installation instructions – making the PR15 Square UltraThin LED Recessed Light quite possibly the most painless square light fixture to install in a ceiling!

Introducing the Illinois™ Dimmable PAR30 LED Light Bulb

New Illinois LED PAR30On this St. Patrick’s Day LED Waves is pleased to introduce you to our newest green product: the Illinois™ Dimmable PAR30 LED Light Bulb. A 16W replacement for a 150W halogen spotlight, the Illinois is even brighter and more efficient than our previous American-made LED PAR30.

Like the recently re-launched New York 3.0 PAR38, the Illinois uses a single high-powered Philips LUXEON CoB LED for higher efficacy, center beam candle power, and luminaire to luminaire consistency. Each one also features a uniquely textured reflector to multiply light output without added glare.

Like all LED lights made in the USA only by LED Waves, the Illinois comes with a 5 year warranty – thanks in part to the extra attention paid to heat dissipation. In addition to our signature lightweight aluminum heat sink that promotes air flow, the Illinois features a metal core printed circuit board (MCPCB) to lower thermal resistance from the LED. These high quality components work together to prolong the service life of the entire bulb.

We’re sure you’ll love the bright, feel-good light from the new Illinois™ Dimmable LED PAR30. Order today to be among the first to try it out!

Introducing the New York 3.0 Dimmable PAR38 LED Light Bulb

Today we are pleased to announce the latest addition to our exclusive line of American-made LED light bulbs. The New York 3.0 PAR38 Dimmable LED light bulb is a 1,700 lumen, <20 Watt replacement for a 175W halogen spotlight – and the improvements don’t end at the energy savings!

NY3.DIMMABLE LED PAR38

After the success of our Owl™ Outdoor LED Wall Pack – the first floodlight we made using a single Chip-on-Board (CoB) light source – we gave the same treatment to our new LED PAR38. CoB LED architecture is solder-free, streamlining and fortifying the lamp design by reducing stress points. And using a single LED as a light source gives the NY 3.0 a more concentrated beam with crisp, unpixilated edges, while also providing more bulb-to-bulb consistency in brightness and color.

LED Waves’ engineers chose the Philips LUXEON 1203 CoB LED for our redesigned PAR38 based on its efficacy (up to 135 lumens per Watt) and uniform optical performance – all packaged into the smallest Light Emitting Surface in the industry. This small footprint enabled us to use a smaller, more lightweight heat sink on this bulb.

Check out the New York 3.0 online for more details on the upgrades made to our LED PAR38 – and what these upgrades mean for your home or business. Pre-order today at LEDWaves.com or call 1(800)986-0169.
