Cut Energy Costs & Reap Other Benefits by Upgrading to LED Lighting
December 7, 2017
Want to save more than 30 percent in energy costs every month? If your business hasn’t upgraded to LED lighting both indoors and out, you’re missing out on a way to dramatically reduce energy expenditures and dramatically reduce the need for maintenance.
LED (light-emitting diode) lighting has become the new standard in lighting for most businesses and homes. Here is a list of some of the benefits your business will reap as a result of making the switch.
LED Lighting Is Very Efficient
LED bulbs are approximately 80 percent more efficient than older lighting options, such as fluorescent and incandescent bulbs.
It is estimated that 40 percent of a building’s energy usage is for lighting, so replacing your lighting with LED bulbs can reduce your energy costs by 30 to 70 percent, depending on how much lighting your office uses.
LEDs Are Better for the Environment
Because LEDs last a very long time — up to 20 years, or 125,000 hours, in some cases — there are fewer bulbs to dispose of. Making the switch to LED lighting will demonstrate your company’s commitment to green business practices.
LED Lighting Requires Less Maintenance
Because LED bulbs last so long, the need to change them is infrequent, so you can save money and time on maintenance staff or contractors.
LED Lights Are Brighter & More Natural
The pure white light emitted by LED bulbs is more like sunlight, which can positively affect staff in your buildings through improved productivity and attitude. Customers often feel better energy and find your building environment to be more pleasant. Better lighting also improves safety in and outside your buildings.
