Lighting your building is part of the expense of doing business. Whether you have a retail store, warehouse, offices or other commercial building, you can significantly reduce your lighting expenses with LEDs. Energy savings is just the start, even though it might be the best part of lighting with LEDs. You’ll discover some other surprising improvements to your business, just by switching to LED lighting. If you want to save money on your energy bill and put more dollars on your bottom line, then here are some great reasons to make the switch to LEDs, plus some bonuses that you never would have imagined.
LED Lights have a Longer Life
The solid state(no moving parts) semiconductor technology that powers an LED light give it a super long life. Estimates range from 25,000 to 100,00 hours of service with the average LED bulb. Commercial buildings can save time and money by replacing fewer bulbs with LEDs. Depending on your lighting run times, many LEDs can last up to 20 years.
No Mercury in LEDs
Your employees have enough to worry about without wondering if a mercury-filled CFL light bulb is broken or not. Light bulbs are made of glass and are very sensitive. CFL light bulbs contain mercury and require you to follow hazmat guidelines for cleanup. Your employees do not need to become experts in hazardous materials with LEDs. They are made of electronic chips and are extremely durable. LEDs let you concentrate on your business, not on hazardous waste removal.
Bulbs are Super Energy-Efficient
Older lighting options emit heat, thereby losing part of their energy in the form of heat loss. Because the LED light is produced by an electronic chip, it can provide efficient management of the energy required to produce light and substantially reduces energy waste to heat loss. In some instances, you can save as much as 90% on your lighting costs by switching to LEDs. Over the lifetime of each bulb, the energy savings and cost reduction in your electricity bill with LEDs can by huge.
LED lighting provides bright and brilliant lighting. LED bulb technology is so versatile that you can match the style and type of lighting to your current lighting conditions or create an entirely new lighting design. It’s really left to your imagination and application.
Increase Worker Safety, Productivity and Morale
Your commercial building will be improved with better-lit interiors and exteriors. A well lit building can contribute to a safer working environment, such as production facility locations. Additionally, improved lighting conditions have been known to increase morale, which could lead to increased productivity.
Customers Will Notice Well-Lit Businesses
When you drive down the highway, you notice vehicles with LED lights. Their beam is not scattered. If you have merchandise displayed on your retail shelves, vehicles in a showroom, or if you just want to provide a positive image to the public, then the brilliant lighting of LEDs will get your business noticed.
A Variety of Sizes and Colors
Modern LED bulbs can be constructed in very tiny sizes, as small as a millimeter or as large as stadium lights. This modern semiconductor technology can be customized to your commercial building needs. You can replace your existing lights with an LED retrofit or choose from the range of colored lights in reds, greens and blues. Each has its own energy characteristics. Programmable, colored lighting could give your business an edge, by making it stand out in a crowd of competitors.
When you want safe, energy efficient, cost reducing, and superior lighting for your commercial building, then switching to LED bulbs is something to consider. They are constructed in all shapes, sizes and colors to deliver a powerful lighting impression or to give the perfect amount of energy saving light for your everyday business operations.
