Customers on e-conolight.com are posting five-star reviews for several LED outdoor fixtures they say really deliver. The most highly-rated LED fixture by far is the 36 watt LED dusk to dawn, but large LED floodlights, large LED wall packs, and LED canopy lights are also garnering rave reviews for the amount of light they deliver, durable design and energy efficiency.

Since e-conolight introduced the 36 watt LED dusk to dawn late last year, the fixture has become a customer favorite for its reliable bright light, sturdy construction, hands-free operation and affordability.

The entrance to a church in South Carolina is safer now that an LED dusk to dawn has been installed.

“Now the area is very bright and safe,” the customer who installed the light wrote. “I would buy this product again if I need to. (It was) worth every penny.”

Another customer’s first LED purchase was the LED dusk to dawn, and he was so impressed, he’s urging other customers to give it a try.

“Now my light is bright white and looks modern,” he posted. “Anybody that’s on the fence about switching to LED, this is the light for you.”

When it comes to the large LED floodlight, customers are just as enthusiastic.

“Glad to get rid of the old slow start, heat-generating ballasted old technology,” a review reads for the 7000 lumen 152 watt large LED floodlight.

Another post reads, “Had fluorescent lights everywhere (and) started to replace them with these. Love it.”

Large 6000 lumen LED wall packs are also highly rated; receiving top marks across the board.

“Wow, what a difference,” one customer posted. “Easy mount, easy wire, quick fire on, and very bright.”

A customer in the marine construction industry appreciates the LED wall pack fixtures because they stand up to challenging on-board conditions.

“This wall pack throws light where I need it (and is) a great replacement for incandescent and CFL standing lights around the deck house,” the review says. “Also, not something I have to replace very couple of days like incandescent lights due to the amount of vibration we have onboard.”

An electrician in Texas installed two of the 3700 lumen LED wall packs on the columns at the entrance to a subdivision. He said residents are pleased with the overall quality of the fixtures.

“All residents (are) extremely satisfied (with the) quality lighting with the added plus of law amp draw and energy efficiency,” he posted. “(I) will soon be recommending and installing many more.”

Customers are also unanimous in their praise for the 3350 lumen 36 watt neutral white LED canopy light.

“I’ve been buying these fixtures for several months now, and they have been the best replacement fixtures for all of our applications,” a review reads from a customer who works for a school district in Texas.

Another post points out how bright the fixtures are while using less energy than comparable metal halide lights.

“Replaced 100 watt metal halide, and they are just as bright and use way less energy,” the customer posted. “(This is an) affordable, great product.”

A shop owner in Wisconsin’s north woods installed two LED canopy fixtures in his store, and he couldn’t be happier despite being a little leary of taking the leap to LED.

“(I) could not be happier with the light they produce,” he said. “I was a little hesitant before I placed my order, but now I am awfully glad that I ordered these lights. This is an excellent product!”

LED Lighting Helps Restaurants Give Good Presentation

Restaurant front of houseThe right restaurant lighting can make the difference between guests who linger – and spend more – and those who eat and run. E-conolight offers a number of LED fixtures appropriate for restaurant applications both inside and out where color and tone are critical.

In the dining room, dimmable recessed lighting and track lighting can create exactly the right atmosphere for guests. Turn lights up for daytime and early evening dining and bring them down again for more intimate affairs. LED lamps can be used in pendant lighting over individual tables to provide warm, white light that upgrades any dining experience.

The National Restaurant Association, in a post dedicated to front-of-house operations, advises restaurateurs to carefully apply lighting to highlight the eatery’s personality, make guests look great and create just the right atmosphere. The writer also points out the value in dimmable fixtures.

“Lighting can set the mood in your restaurant, creating a soothing ambience that encourages customers to linger … You want people to look their best, so they’ll stay longer and buy more,” the story reads. “Use dimmable lights to allow you to adjust the lighting as needed … (there’s) a different feel at lunch than at dinner than at late night.”

LED lay-in troffers in the kitchen provide bright, even light in sealed, maintenance-free designs that are easy to clean. Sous chefs can prepare ingredients for cooks and executive chefs know they have the right textures and colors. Because the troffer lights are designed for 1-for-1 replacement in existing T-bar ceiling grids, upgrading to LED from fluorescent light panels is a snap.

Barry Dickinson, service manager with Roman Electric, Inc. in Milwaukee, WI, said restaurant customers who install LED troffers are happy with them.

“They come in three sizes, which is great especially in restaurants,” he said. “They’re easy to install and easy to clean.”

The NRA in a recent post about the back-of-house noted that switching to LED is an investment in long-term savings both in energy costs and not having to replace burned out lamps.

“With their reduced heat load, LEDs can lower your cooling costs, especially crucial in warmer climes,” the article reads. “Because LED bulbs last for years, you’ll have fewer lights to change.”

LED directional floodlight at Olive Garden

Energy efficiency and great style begin before diners walk in the door, and the right outdoor lighting scheme is also crucial for leaving a great last impression as well.

Russell Guddex, manager of an Olive Garden restaurant in Brookfield, WI, chose LED premium directional floodlights for both security and landscape lighting. The combination of safety and beauty welcomes guests with the right amount warm illumination.

“The light is vibrant and bright,” he said. “The way (the LED light fixtures) wash the sides of the building and highlight the tressels is fantastic.”

LED wall packs and canopy lights make guests feel more secure by providing bright light along pathways and eliminating shadows along exterior walls. LED floodlights and parking lights improve visibility for drivers and pedestrians for even greater security.
