The Basics Of Installing LED Light Panels

When you are looking for a way to improve your lighting but reduce your energy bills, one of the things you might be thinking is investing in LED light panels. Unfortunately, many people lack the understanding of these panels and how to choose and install them. Before you invest in any LED light panels, there are some things that you should know. Here are a few things to think about.

Where Will You Install Them?

The first thing you need to think about when you're considering investing in LED panels is where you intend to install them. LED panels can be installed in many different places and in a variety of different ways. Knowing your options can help you decide what is right for your application.

If you're looking for lighting for drop ceilings, LED light panels are a great option. You can easily hang these lights from a drop ceiling to create sufficient lighting. They can be suspended for lower illumination, or they can be mounted more closely if you prefer. 

You can also install LED light panels horizontally, flush-mounted to a table, attached to the underside of cabinet structures, or any similar placement. Additionally, LED light panels are easy to install vertically. You can easily attach them to the wall in areas where you need lights positioned lower or you want to cast light from the walls to eliminate shadows.

What Kind Will You Use?

There are a variety of different LED lights available on the market, each with unique features and purposes. Some LED lights are created to emit warmer colors while others are crafted to emit cooler colors. Either way, you'll be saving significantly on your energy costs because LED lights are more energy-efficient, and you can also help to create the lighting environment you need in your facility when you choose cool or warm LED lights. You can even add colored LED light panels in areas where colored lighting would prove beneficial.

What Size Do You Need?

LED light panels come in a wide range of sizes, so you need to consider the size needs for each area where you'll install them. Depending on the lighting arrangement, you may find that you need one size for installing on the ceiling and another size for placement under cabinets or to suspend over work areas. Talk with your light panel installer about the size options available to you so that you can choose the right sizes for each location.
