LED Lighting

LED lighting is a long-lasting, energy-efficient alternative to traditional incandescent and halogen options. LEDs (light-emitting diodes) have been around since the mid-20th century, but have only recently been used in residential and commercial lighting applications. Here at Westside Wholesale, we maintain an ever-growing selection of LED lights, including bulbs, downlights, rope lights, track lighting, street lights, flashlights, and much more.

Our collection of LED lights here at Westside Wholesale come from some of the most innovative brands in the industry. LED bulbs and lighting are most frequently used as eco-conscious replacements for existing fixtures. It’s a popular choice in these cases because most LED lights will save enough money in power costs to effectively pay for themselves when compared to non-LED alternatives.

However, LED lights are becoming more popular in new construction applications. This is because homeowners and contractors know that they’re reliable and cost-efficient. For products with more specific uses like flashlights, street lights, and exit signs, for example, Westside Wholesale knows that customers prefer LEDs because of their reduced maintenance and steady light output.

Because of their energy efficiency, most LED lighting products will have two different power ratings, wattage and wattage equivalency. Its wattage is the actual power used by the LED light. On the other hand, equivalency refers to the wattage used by its incandescent or halogen counterparts. This is helpful when finding replacement bulbs or for simply figuring out what kind of output to expect from your bulb.

Feel free to contact Westside Wholesale if you have any questions about LED lighting or which LED light is right for your installation.

How to Select

How to Select LED Lighting

LED Lighting is the most innovative form of lighting on the market today, saving as much as 80% on electrical costs versus conventional lighting.

When choosing your lighting, consider:

  1. Voltage:
  • Low Voltage – low voltage(usually 12v) lighting is typically used for under cabinet lighting, outdoor lighting, or landscape lighting. Ambient lighting sometimes uses low voltage fixtures as well. However, a low voltage fixture will not operate properly in line voltage connections. If connected to a line voltage (120v), it may cause electrical fire or damage to the fixture and surrounding area.
  • Line Voltage – Line voltage, is the common term for standard 120v power. Standard household electricity is line voltage. You should not connect low voltage fixtures to line voltage connections.  If you plan to install lighting inside your home besides accent lighting, you will most likely use line voltage lighting.
  1. Commercial Grade:

If the installation is a commercial building, consider using Commercial Grade fixtures which can handle heavier duty electrical currents and higher voltage. These fixtures are safer for regular use in commercial situations.

  1. Insulated Ceiling:

If you ceiling has additional insulation, please consider using a housing that is suitable for this. At Westside Wholesale, we offer models that are suitable. If you do not have insulation in your ceiling, we also have models that fit your application.

  1. Interconnectable:

Certain LED lighting models are designed to be interconnected to a series of lighting for dimming or to connect to a lighting control module.

  1. Color:

When refining by color, you will notice that it refers to several color variables whether it be the finish on the metal trim, or the color of the LED elements.
