kitchen with integrated LED light fixtures

 

LED lighting technology is advancing rapidly, and The Home Depot is proud to offer products representing the newest step forward in how we light our homes: integrated LED light fixtures. These new products are changing the way we think of light fixtures. The light emitting diodes– the small lamps that create the light– are now so reliable, efficient and long lasting that for many applications, the concept of changing burned out light bulbs is becoming obsolete. This means that the lighting fixture you place in your kitchen, dining room, bath or back yard can now come with the LED integrated into the design, and the LED will last as long as the fixture itself.

Our integrated LED fixtures include recessed lightsunder cabinet lighting, as well as beautiful decorative lighting from Juno, Eurofase and other manufacturers. In fact, all the lighting you see in the image above is produced by LEDs in integrated fixtures. We also offer great LED options for outdoor landscape lighting, like path lights in both solar and low voltage options, and outdoor security lighting.

Of course, The Home Depot continues to sell LED bulbs for your existing fixtures, but expect to see more types of integrated LED fixtures becoming available.

FIVE THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT INTEGRATED LED LIGHT FIXTURES

1. LED Light Fixtures Are Remarkably Long-Lasting And Virtually Maintenance-Free

The light emitting diodes that produce the light are designed to last 25,000 hours. That means no more light bulb changes or maintenance, which is especially helpful with hard-to-reach outdoor lighting that requires ladders or other special equipment to access once they are mounted. You’re getting lamp life that is far longer than traditional lighting, minus the maintenance and replacement costs.

2. They Offer Huge Energy Cost Savings

LED light fixtures consume up to 85 percent less energy than standard lighting over the course of their long lives, while providing just as much brightness and versatility. LED light fixtures are also cool to the touch. Cool lights help reduce air conditioning needs.

3. They Are Among The Most Durable Lights You Can Find

Unlike traditional lighting, LED lights have no filament and are undamaged under circumstances when a traditional bulb would be broken. They’re excellent for use in cold climates, where some standard fluorescent lighting is more susceptible to malfunction. LED light fixtures turn on instantly in all weather conditions. They’re even impervious to on/off cycling, which can shorten the lifespan of traditional lighting.

4. They’re Easier To Live With

We touched on the fact that LED light fixtures are virtually maintenance-free, but that’s just part of what makes them so easy to be around. LED lights are also buzz-free, so you can say goodbye to that annoying background hum we’ve all heard from major light fixtures.

5. You Can Have Them Your Way

Some people may think LED light fixtures are stuck putting out cold, yellow-ish kind of light that draws attention to itself, but the truth is that they offer a variety of color tones, temperatures, and brightness levels. That means that virtually any illumination provided by traditional bulbs can be matched by LED lights – with the addition of a host of benefits as we’ve shown you.

    I am looking for a small base LED 100 watt tulip shaped bulb for my new ceiling fan. Is such a bulb available?

    • Craig Allen says:

      I’m not 100 percent sure I know what you’re looking for. We have no “tulip shaped” bulbs. But we do have what are often called “candelabra” LED bulbs, which look lovely in tulip shades.

      Also, we don’t have any such candelabra LED bulbs in a 100 watt equivalent. Forty-watt equivalent are the brightest that sort of bulb comes in.

    I’m presuming the new “integrated” LED fixtures that Home Depot is selling have built in transformers, which ups the cost, and provides another part to wear out.

    If I’m understanding the technology correctly, I’m guessing that soon new construction will have 12v wiring for lighting which will all be LED, and 110v wiring for outlets, and of course the 220 for large appliances that need them. Is Home Depot planning on selling the LED lighting units, and central transformers which presumably would be located at the panel soon?

    Where are your LED bathroom fixtures?

    Can any of them be dimmed by an old rheostat switch?

    • Craig Allen says:

      Brian,

      For now at least, The Home Depot has no integrated LED fixtures made especially for the bathroom. You can, of course, use LED bulbs in just about any fixture that takes standard base bulbs– which is practically all of them.

      You ask about using an old rheostat switch to dim LED lights. The answer is, an older dimmer switch probably will not work with LED bulbs. You’ll want to use a dimmer switch made for LED and CLF bulbs.

      Here’s part of an answer to a similar question that appeared on our online How-To Community Forums. Home Depot associate Joseph_HD_ATL said:

      “[Y]ou’ll need to make sure any new CFL or LED bulbs are fully dimmable. If it doesn’t say it on the package, then its a good chance that it isn’t. This is important because even if there is a dimmer on them rated for CFL and LED’s…it still won’t work. Which leads me to my 2nd item you’ll need…a dimmer rated for CFL and LED light bulbs. Older dimmers aren’t as sensitive to the changes in the CFL’s ballast or LED sensitive components for it to work properly, hence you will need a new dimmer rated for these kinds of new bulbs.”

    question I bought 2 led bulbs and noticed they say 110 volts and all my other bulbs are 120 volts can i still use the 110 volt ones or should i return them .I don’t want to open them until i am sure I can use them .The base says 110 volts

    • Craig Allen says:

      That’s a really good question, Betty. The answer is, yes, you can use the 110 volt bulbs and the 120 volt bulbs.

      But I’m not sure how to explain why.

      I took your question over to our online How-To Community Forums so that one of our electrical experts can answer your question, and explain why some bulbs are 120 volt and others 110 volts. I posted your question –> here.

      I look forward to seeing the answer myself!

      Thanks for the question.

      -Craig, from The Home Depot

    • Craig Allen says:

      OK, Betty, here’s the authoritative answer from Home Depot associate Ingar Nygren, posted on our How-To Community Forums:

      “You have 110v system which 120v bulbs are designed for. An 110v system will surge past 110v so the bulb is designed to support these surges, so it is called 120v.
      There are also 130v bulbs which simply have a thicker filament in them, designed to last longer than the 120v bulb, due to power surging past 120v.
      So the short and sweet of it is that your 110v lamp can use a 120v or 130v bulb.”

      The part I liked best about his response is this:

      “This is something that I did not know before learning it some time in my 16 year career with Home Depot. Thanks for your question.”

      That really WAS a good question, Betty!

    What can’t I put an LED fixture 24 inches over my stove?

    Thank you.

    • Craig Allen says:

      Hi, Wendy.

      There’s no reason in general why you can’t put an LED fixture 24 inches over your stove. Perhaps there’s a particular fixture that isn’t rated for that. It would depend on the manufacturer’s specifications.
