L.E.D. and Compact Florescents from Gosch Reduce Home and Business Energy Costs

The advent of Light Emitting Diode (LED) and Compact Fluorescent Lighting (CFL) systems has ushered in a new era of potential savings for both businesses and homeowners who use these systems,” said Garry Stanard, owner of Gosch Supply & Lighting Centre.

“ For homeowners, Energy Star®-qualified CFL fluorescent fixtures use 75% less energy, generate less heat and last up to ten times longer than incandescent lighting,” Stanard said. “And LED systems are more compact, can last up to 40,000 hours (15+ years) and are cool to the touch with a pure, even flow of light. These systems are perfect for better lighting from your kitchen to your entertainment center. In fact, the Oct. 2009 issue of Consumer Reports said: ‘Our tests confirm that CFLs use far less energy and last longer than regular incandescent bulbs. That can save you about $56 over the life of each CFL. There are also CFLs for most fixtures, indoors and out.’”

Garry Stanard, owner, Gosch Supply & Lighting Centre, displays two popular Light Emitting Diode (LED) light systems that save energy, are more compact, and last up to 40,000 hours.  Gosch also carries Compact Fluorescent Lighting (CFL) systems. The unit on the left is a six-inch LED dimmable light recessed ceiling fixture for businesses. The unit on the right is a recessed LED light fixture for kitchens, living rooms, and entertainment centers.  “The advent of LED and CFL systems has brought in a new era of potential savings for both businesses and homeowners who use these systems,” Stanard said.

Stanard said these energy savings extend to lighting systems for business and industry as well: “There is a six-inch recessed LED dimmable light, for example, that replaces a conventional 65 watt incandescent bulb with just 12 watts in a standard six-inch housing. That pays for itself in less than three years and lasts more than 20 years (15,000 hours).

“In addition, T5 and T8 High Efficiency (HE) fluorescent systems typically used in industrial applications can also reduce costs. In fact, the New York State Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) offers a broad range of incentives that give dollars back per fixture for replacement, retrofit or new construction,” said Patricia Davis, Gosch sales consultant. “These incentives cover everything from $10 incentives for replacing each EXIT sign with an Energy Star LED sign to $20 incentives per fixture on High Performance T8 fluorescent lamps and ballasts. T5 High Bay replacements have a $75 per unit rebate and use 45% less wattage. We help our customers get the maximum benefit from this opportunity.”

Another area affecting homes and businesses is federal, state and local regulations concerning spent lighting and electronic equipment as hazardous waste.

“Much of today’s lighting and electronic equipment contain hazardous materials such as mercury, lead or PCBs,” Stanard said. “In Oswego County, there are opportunities for residents to dispose of their spent lighting through special hazardous waste collection arrangements. For businesses and industries, we offer a variety of packages for disposal of fluorescent lamps, ballasts, batteries, computer electronics, and dental waste that meet all state, local and Federal regulations. It’s simple, safe and convenient.”
