Today we’d like to introduce you to David Bailey.
David, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
LED4HOME started as an idea from being in the lighting business over 20 years and consistently having my friends call from a big box store wanting to know which light bulb to purchase.
Later at my home, when I was on the top step of a ladder trying to change a light bulb, I realized that if I fell, at my age, I would break an arm or some part.
Understanding the problem and the need, I began to formulate a plan with my son, Jarad Bailey, about how to start such a business. We already had a large lighting distribution business and a commercial lighting installation company. Thus, we had the purchasing power and the installation experience.
We realized we could sell our commercial quality LED bulbs at the big box store price level and offer free installation to the home owner. Thus, LED4HOME.com was started in August of 2016 and has increased each month thereafter.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
We ran into quite a few obstacles, such as: the old dimmers not being sensitive enough to properly dim the much lower wattage LED bulb, and the customers needing to be educated on the different color light emitted from different bulbs and how that would affect the color within their home.
Please tell us about LED4HOME.
We are family owned and have been in the lighting business for over 20 years. I have three sons, all of whom are in the business. Our family’s reputation is on the line with each install, therefore, it must satisfy the customer. We have received most of our growth from the referrals of satisfied customers.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Our family would decorate our house with all the lights, and looking back, it was almost like Griswold’s in “Christmas Vacation.”
