Kitchen Track Lighting Power Usage Considerations

By Karin Mangan

When adding accent lighting to your home, you can vastly improve upon the energy efficiency by selecting the right lighting option for your particular use. One of the major advantages of track lighting is that it provides a flexible format to optimize your power use accordingly. Rather than applying to much lighting through extensive ambient lighting, targeted track lighting can work with low wattage 12 volt options so you can reduce overall power usage. With independent wiring you can dim and adjust each individual bulb to get the most out of the system. Not only does track lighting improve the look of your kitchen, but it can upgrade your energy efficiency as well.

By working with a junction box, you can ensure independent wiring for your kitchen track lighting for efficiency and safety purposes. Leading brands such as Pro Track, Hampton Bay and Tech Lighting produce high quality options which are highly energy efficient. While the styling and durability of these brands is top quality, what truly separates them from other models is their efficient energy usage. By connecting the bulbs to your track with a highly efficient independent writing you can adjust the light wattage to deliver impressive energy savings.

As part of an overall green upgrade to your kitchen, tracking lighting provides a better way to ensure you only use as much light as you need. For example, many older homes only have a binary on/off switch when it comes to kitchen lighting. As a result, you have to utilize the entire power source when you only need a low level of dimmed light. When switching to kitchen track lighting you're able to independently adjust and dim each light, resulting in impressive power savings.
