What types of businesses benefit the most from LED cove lighting?
Generally speaking, large hospitality businesses with tall ceilings, long operating hours, and massive square footage receive the greatest financial and decorative returns on their investments.
Hotel lobbies look superb with any number of Phantom LED lamp color temperatures. Light output from any of our lamps is equivalent to xenon and incandescent, so the luminance has a good, robust distribution that fills the ceiling area all around the room.
Casinos need both bright lights and specialty lighting to keep the excitement levels high. The money saved on cove lighting with superb color rendering goes a long way to cutting overhead in the gambling industry.
Restaurants, of course, are all about atmosphere and really have to watch their overhead to maintain profits. With new Phantom LED light bulbs, they can count on having the very best in décor, lower cooling cost, and spend less money overall on specialty lighting. All of this ultimately means greater attraction factor for customers as well, because these lights are practically indistinguishable from previous generations of luxury cove lighting lamps.
How are businesses able to save money with LED cove lighting?
There are several ways. The first and most obvious is reduced power consumption. LEDs use less than 60% the amount of electricity than incandescents. Furthermore, the new LED festoon lamps by Phantom Lighting now only require .6 watts of power per lamp. This means there is less than one BTU of heat for each lamp in operation. This drastically reduces heat and lowers electrical cost on air conditioning. Finally, each festoon’s 50,000 hour lamp (that is the equivalent of just under six years of non-stop use), sees to it that you will not have to replace them any time soon.
What types of residential properties can benefit from LED cove lighting?
Any home with decorative ceiling architecture can theoretically benefit from warm, ambient lighting at the top of the wall. The luxury nature of these linear cove lighting strips places them more in the custom home marketplace than the home of average size.
Where can I use these lights?
Places in such homes that can always be enhanced by LED cove lighting include master bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms, foyers, and media rooms. Media rooms especially gain a certain magic from the presence of ambient lighting near the ceiling—especially those that are used as home theaters.
