What Is Under Cabinet Lighting?
Lighting installed under cabinets is typically used as kitchen task lighting. Its purpose is to provide additional light specifically above the counter tops. It’s ideal for kitchens because it’s neatly concealed beneath the cabinets, which eliminates glare, and placement is directly where tasks are preformed insuring adequate illumination on work surfaces. When kitchen cabinet lighting is installed with a dimmer switch it makes for a great night light too.
Kitchen Under Cabinet Lighting Options
Under the cabinet lighting is available in three different categories that are designated by the type of lamps or light bulbs they use. The type of light bulb used in each cabinet lighting fixture has a direct impact on the overall performance of the fixture. Considerations include the color of the light, the amount of light delivered or lumen output and the life expectancy and energy efficiency of both the lamp and fixture. The type of light bulb used can also impact the size, style and shape of the cabinet lighting fixtures.
Special Note: LED’s are semiconductor chips much like those found in your computer. Dolce Electric Co strongly recommends adding a whole house surge protector to keep your home’s under cabinet led lighting safe from electrical spikes and surges.
Disadvantages: Excessive heat radiation, poor energy efficiency, short bulb life
Lamp Life: 1000 to 2000 hours
Style Options: Puck lights, Linear Light Strips, Linear Bar Fixtures, Rope Lighting
Each fixture type has its respective strong points and weak points. For more information about a particular type of under cabinet kitchen lighting contact our in-office electricians in Mesa today.
Special Note: Be cautious if you’re considering halogen lamps. They get extremely hot making them a poor choice for areas where work is being done. Individuals can get burned when accidentally touching halogen fixtures.
