Choose a Plainville Electrician

K-Co Electric, your local Plainville, CT electrician, will help you make the most of new electrical conservation technology while keeping you and your family safe. Electricity is increasingly expensive. That is why investing in energy efficient electrical services will pay dividends over time. An experienced electrician can help you maximize your lighting efficiency while bringing quality illumination to required spaces. Lighting should be energy efficient and functional. Fortunately, there are many options available to meet these needs while providing choices that exhibit superior design.

The government’s Energy Star Program offers a 30% tax rebate for solar energy use and small wind turbines. Your Connecticut electrician can help you choose and implement these energy savings. Such energy sources produce direct current (DC). DC lighting is extremely energy efficient. A small solar panel or wind generator can be used to run a DC lighting system without an inverter. Halogen lighting fixtures and older incandescent fixtures can be easily connected to a 12 volt DC power source.

Whether you are looking for energy upgrades, small improvements or enhancing your lighting to provide better functionality and design, a Connecticut electrician from K-Co can provide you with the quality work that you seek.

Energy efficiency and lighting

Bulbs based on LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, use far less electricity than just about any other bulb. While these bulbs are considerably more expensive than older models, prices are falling steadily.

Fluorescent lighting is up to four times as efficient as halogen in a 12 volt system, but there are few fixtures available. As your local electrical Plainville CT expert, we can help you with all of your electrical needs.

Your Plainville CT electrical contractor keeps up to date on the technology that can help you. Some people claim there is no proof of LED performance superiority, but scientific studies have shown that this technology is highly energy effective. The Minnesota Department of Commerce Division of Energy Resources conducted a study of roadway lighting to determine how effective LED lighting was when compared to a wide selection of other types of lighting. Average performance values for lamps in hours were measured to be up to 24,000 for mercury vapor, up to 15,000 for metal halide, up to 25,000 for high pressure sodium, 70,000 for induction and 100,000 for LEDs. With the exception of induction lamps, LED lamps were shown to be the longest lasting. In addition, there are many low voltage applications designed especially for landscaping and outdoor use.
