Falken Reynolds is honoured to be spokespersons for Philips range of LED light bulbs. It was an easy decision for us – not only is Philips the industry leader in LED technology, but the products are ones that we are excited to use. The quality of light is amazing, many of the bulbs are dimmable, and there is an LED option for most of the lamps we use in our projects.
There is a lot of talk in the design and building industry about being green – which is encouraging – but so often the talk is misleading. We try to keep our green philosophy simple: reduce, reuse, recycle. We believe one of the best ways to be green is to simply use less: buy quality products that last a long time. Not only are Philips LED’s fully recyclable (and contain no mercury), most last over twenty years for typical residential use.
In the following posts we will share five of our lighting tips – and show how LED’s can be incorporated into any residential lighting plan. We worked with a good friend and some of our favourite design shops to create a space that is 100% lit by LEDs – inside and out.
In Vancouver, keep an eye out for rebates through retailers like London Drugs, Home Depot, Lowes among other home improvement stores. Local utilities in British Columbia – BC Hydro and Fortis BC- also offer LED lighting rebates.
