Turn Your Home Into A Castle With A Beautiful Chandelier

Long, long, ago – throughout the dark ages, medieval homes were lit by fires in open cooking pits.

When candles (“chandelles”) were invented, they were incredibly expensive and reserved for the wealthiest class. It wasn’t until the 14th century that the first “chandelier” was created – a crude wooden cross with spikes at each end to skewer a candle. It didn’t take long for Continue reading

Stop Getting Burned on Incandescent Bulbs!

We’ve all burnt our fingers on hot light bulbs . . . but did you know that the intense heat is actually wasted energy? With the advent of LED replacement bulbs, you’ll enjoy a better quality of light and save over $148 per replacement bulb. Plus you’ll never burn your fingers on a hot bulb again!

bulbLED Lighting technology is here to stay. LED replacement bulbs are now available at LightStyles in Cornelius for most lighting applications and smart homeowners and businesses are making the switch to LED bulbs for one simple reason: COST SAVINGS!

The initial purchase price of LED bulbs is higher than for incandescent bulbs. But when you factor in the electricity cost to run incandescent bulbs vs. LED, the argument becomes compelling. LEDs produce the same amount of light as traditional incandescent bulbs (called “lumens”), but using ten times less energy. When you replace an incandescent bulb with an LED, you are getting the same lumens output for just 1/10th of the energy use – and cost. And since the average kilowatt/hour rate in South Carolina is 9.5 cents, the savings start adding up as soon as you turn on the lights.

LED bulbs are rated to last at least 25,000 hours vs. incandescent bulbs that last only about 2,000 hours. Homeowners and business owners who consider the replacement bulb cost and the electrical cost of burning an incandescent bulb for 25,000 hours are replacing with LED bulbs in multiple locations to save even more money.

Save Over $148 with each LED Replacement Bulb!
