Light Saving, Sight Saving, Energy Saving

Basically, LEDs are just tiny light bulbs that fit easily into an electrical circuit. But unlike ordinary incandescent bulbs, they don’t have a filament that will burn out, and they don’t get especially hot. They are illuminated solely by the movement of electrons in a semiconductor material, and they last just as long as a standard transistor.
LEDs are superior to traditional lighting solutions such as incandescent and fluorescent technologies because they:

• Are significantly brighter and smaller.
• Use up to 90 percent less power/energy.
• Are virtually indestructible.
• Operate up to 100 times longer.
• Have no moving parts, wire filaments or other fragile elements.
• Offer up to 130 percent more color gamut for greater coFrontier Lighting's 20th Anniversarylor saturation.
• Eliminate the use of lead and mercury.

Saving Your Money!
We all know of the critical condition of the water supply in the west central portion of Florida. Southwest Florida Water Management District (sometimes referred to as “SWFWMD”) has developed several ideas and tips concerning water conservation. The following are some of their major recommendations:

1. Never pour water down the drain when there may be another use for it such as watering a plant or garden, or for cleaning.

2. Verify your home is leak-free. Many homes have hidden water leaks. Read your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter does not read exactly the same, there is a leak.

3. Repair dripping faucets by replacing washers. If your faucet is dripping at a rate of one drop per second, you will waste 2,700 gallons per year.

4. Take shorter showers. Replace your shower head with an ultra-low flow version.
