The Best Types of Lighting for Your Garage
December 22, 2017
The garage is often one of the busiest places in the home, with most families using the garage as the way they enter and exit the house, where they keep a lot of their things, and maybe even spend time in a home gym or office. So it deserves good lighting just like any other part of the house and we thought we would help our customers out by recommending the best lighting for the garage space. Here is a list of the different kinds of lighting you can look into for your garage.
The lighting you choose will depend on how you use your garage. Fluorescent lighting is pretty common in garages because it doesnít use up too much energy and lights up a space well. But if you have a work station in the garage as well, using fluorescents for lighting is a great idea. They are known for running cooler than other lights and are pretty compact so they wonít take up too much space.
Another well known lighting solution is incandescents, which includes halogen lights. Halogens are known for being more energy efficient than standard bulbs because they have an inner coating that reflects heat back into the core. They also have a longer life expectancy than your standard incandescent bulb and provide great color rendition. Incandescents tend to be inexpensive and come in a wide variety of colors, size and shape, with a warmer tone of light. However, incandescents are usually the least energy efficient among commonly used lighting solutions so not the best option if you are looking to make your garage environmentally friendly.
But if you are ever looking to upgrade your existing fluorescent lighting, LED lights might be the way to go. LED lighting is very energy efficient, durable, and light instantly. They are known to last a long time and for that entire duration, they will save you money as they lower your electricity bill. And on top of all that, LED lights are some of the brightest in the business and you have plenty of options, like LED ceiling fans, lamps, recessed lighting, flatlights, and more.
You can always replace your old bulbs with new ones or upgrade with more modern, energy saving lighting, the choice is up to you. We hope this quick list of well-known lighting solutions helps you to figure out which is the best for your garage and how you use it.
