When most people think of tube lighting they think of offices, shops, and other workplaces, like factories. They are an extremely efficient way to light a large space. The light they emit is bright and they are very energy efficient if you use LED tube lights from LED Hut or a similar supplier.
You would be surprised by how easy and useful it is for you to use them in and around the home. Here are a few examples of how homeowners are taking advantage of this type of low maintenance, inexpensive and effective lighting.
To light awkward spaces
If you have a light fixture located in a hard to reach place, having it converted to tube lighting can make a lot of sense. Using LED tubes instead of regular bulbs means that you will only have to change it every 16 years. A lot less, if you do not have the light on very often. That means you will only have to tether awkwardly on a step ladder to change the tube a few times in your lifetime. That is far less dangerous than having to do it every couple of years.
To light garages and workshops
Strip lighting is a particularly good option for a garage or workshop. The ceilings in these places tend to be quite high. If you use regular bulbs, you need to have them hanging low and to use the highest wattage bulbs. Having regular shaped bulbs hanging from the ceiling on long cables looks really ugly. Plus, they tend to gather dust and cleaning them is going to be awkward.
With LED tube lighting, you have none of those issues. They can be mounted up against the ceiling. Because they last for 16 years, or more, you rarely have to get a high step ladder out to change them. Most importantly of all, they are far more efficient than CFLs and incandescent bulbs are. This means that you can light a large space without having to pay for a lot of electricity.
In your sheds
They also work really well for sheds. These types of tube light cope with being switched on and off fairly frequently.
To light up big cupboards
If you have a large cupboard or wardrobe fitting a light inside them can make finding things a lot easier. For this job, tube lighting is a particularly good option. They provide a long strip of brightness, which means that the light gets into every corner of the cupboard. Regular bulbs only provide small puddles of light, which can make it hard for you to find what you want.
In the loft
Your loft space is another good place to install tube lighting. Again, it is far easier to find what you want when the entire area is lit up.
So, there you have it, five ways you could use low cost, easy to maintain LED tube lights in your home. Plus, if you chose the type that has smart technology built into them you can control when they turn on and off from a remote location.
