Day One of LightFair International 2014 is in the books and the word that keeps coming up is WOW!

Not only love the classic styles but also the new trends and discovering new ways to customize fixtures and make them even more durable, beautiful, and energy efficient.Read More
If you have time to read this blog on Thanksgiving Day, you must have the bird in the oven, the cranberry sauce chillin’ in the fridge, and the pies cooling on the porch. It’s been an amazing year for us here at Barn Light Electric, and we wanted to take time today to share with you some of the things for which we are truly grateful.
From our Headquarters building, we are thankful for…
…my Savior, my family and my business — Bryan Scott, owner, Barn Light Electric
“Hey honey, I think we should quit our jobs and make lights full time!”
Those remarkable words started a conversation between Bryan and Donna Scott just four years ago. Being a good sport, Donna agreed, and Barn Light Electric was born. In one of the worst economic downturns in our nation’s history, the couple quit their full-time jobs to begin the company with little more than a laptop and a barn full of old light fixtures Bryan found on his weekends off.Read More

Since it was first introduced in the early 1990′s, the Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb (CFL) has been one of the most popular Energy Efficient bulbs in America. Compact Fluorescent bulbs were designed to replace the less energy efficient Standard Incandescent bulb. CFL’s produce just as much light as your Standard Incandescent, but use 1/3 of the overall energy!
Why should I switch to CFL’s? What’s the difference? It’s the average lifespan of each bulb – it differs drastically! Although less in your initial cost, Standard Incandescent bulbs can be manufactured to last 750 to 1,000 hours. By paying slightly more up front, a Compact Fluorescent bulb typically has a rated lifespan of 6,000 – 15,000 hours! Doing the math, that means CFL’s last between 8 and 15 times longer! If you’re not on board to save the earth, do it for your wallet!Read More
