Our Story

About LEDs

We also deal directly with manufacturers, so we can supply our clients with highest quality and affordable LED lamps for their specific requirements. Our expert technicians can help you determine how much you are able to save with this new lighting option.

Reasons Why You Should Change to LED Lighting and Choose GCLEDL LED’s HIGH QUALITY LED Products:

Fast and Sure RETURN of your INVESTMENT

When you choose to re-lamp or replace using our high quality and proven LED bulbs, tubes and lighting fixtures, you can get a RETURN on your investment in just a short period of time. Typically, you can get between 35 to 80% ROI in less than two years upon installation of your new LEDs.

Also, we will help you qualify for any applicable rebates from your local electric company and get a federal or state tax breaks/credits as well. These rebates can then be used to cover some of the capital needed to fund the re-lamping project.

Our latest LED tubes/lamps have such a strong lumen output that we can de-lamp a 4-tube lighting fixture using just 2 LED tubes and still maintain the same or even greater amount of light in the workspace.

SAVE on your Maintenance Costs

Once you decide to upgrade to our LEDs, you won’t need to worry about tedious maintenance work. Our lamps are practically maintenance-free for 50,000 hours and our testing even exceeds 100,000+ hours on some of the products! That is 1,000% more than conventional fluorescent lamps. Our LEDs will definitely bring you huge savings throughout its lifetime. Some of our products from our first year are still working well today!

We or you can install our LED lamps in your existing fluorescent housings and they do not need an expensive ballast. Plus, our tubes are very cool and operate at a 75-80°F ambient temperature so they do not add to the room’s summer cooling consumption/load.

Traditional street lamps and parking lot lamps need scissor lifts or boom trucks to replace lights every 6 – 12 months. Our parking lot LED lamps are not only sure to work for 5 years, but labs indicate that they’ll last up to 10 years if left on <12 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Easy to Install and Use

All our LED lights can be easily installed to your existing light sockets or housings. There is also no need to remove your old ballasts (simply bypass), which will also lower your overall costs.

We only use patented designs that make our LED lamps one of the longest lasting products available on the market. We only use quality components that we know can meet all the EPA Energy Star Rating standards. Our products all have certifications from the Design Lights Consortium Certified, UL approved and made in the USA options!

We have a full range of colors and Kelvin temperatures such as 2500 to 6500. You can choose from our dimmable models and all lamps are guaranteed flicker-free. Our clients can choose from a wide-range of interior and exterior lighting fixtures and we can even work with our manufacturers to design a customized lamp to fit your needs.

Testamonials from a few of our clients:

Tanner Morris – Harper-Morris Memorial Chapel

We here at Harper-Morris Memorial Chapel had Don Richards with Gulf Coast LED Lighting come and give us some suggestions and ideas for lighting a few years ago. Don and his company were very professional, timely to respond, gave great suggestions and answered all our questions. Once we received and accepted the quote, they ordered everything and kept in communication with us and scheduled a time to come install everything. We could not have been more happy with the work and the results we saw! I would definitely recommend them to any friends or family that have businesses. Above all, even after the job was done, if we needed anything or had a question, it was answered or handled promptly. Good customer service these days is hard to find, but Don & Darlene Richards and their team at Gulf Coast LED Lighting still knows what that is and represents it well!

Kathy Kuehl – Mail’s A Breeze

We have been thrilled with the transformation of our business by replacing our fluorescent lights with LED lights.  Gulf Coast LED Lighting made the transition a painless process.  The installers were fast, efficient and so professional.  I wish we had made the change years ago.  No more shadows and less-than-flattering lights.  We are amazed that the installation of LED lights made such a significant difference. Best of all, we saw an immediate reduction in our lighting and energy costs.  Thank you Gulf Coast LED Lighting.
