Switching over to LED lighting is something that can be incredibly beneficial for many different types of businesses. While many businesses have already made the switch themselves, some still tend to be uncertain as to the benefits that come along with switching over to LED lighting. Switching to LED lighting can be beneficial for your business in a variety of ways, from the environmental impact to economic benefits. In part one of this blog series, we will look at a handful of benefits that your business can benefit from making the switch over to LED lighting.

Cost Benefits

While this is something that we’ve touched on before in relation to home usage, the fact remains that switching over to LED lighting comes with many cost benefits. This is especially true for businesses who have more lighting than most homes and, thusly, go through more light bulbs as a result of this. LED bulbs last longer than incandescent bulbs. While the average incandescent bulb is said to deliver around 1,000 hours of usage, LEDs last a considerably longer amount of time, offering an estimated 25,000 hours of illumination. Depending on the brand and specification of your LED bulb, some bulbs have been known to offer nearly double this amount, lasting up to 50,000 hours. While the upfront costs of LED bulbs are more expensive than incandescent bulbs, you end up saving more money by not having to replace them nearly as often. Additionally, as we stated earlier, LED lighting consumes less energy, and with less energy consumed comes less money spent on your energy bills each month. A statistic from the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that if if everyone were to switch over to LED lighting over the next two decades, the amount of savings in energy costs would be in the ballpark of $250 million. While having everyone make the switch over to LED bulbs may take a little bit of time, every bit helps, and you will begin to notice the differences once your business makes the change over.

Environmental Benefits

Providing our clients with cost-effective energy solutions is what we do at Enertech, but we also help those very clients make decisions that are environmentally friendly, which is incredibly important to us as well. These concerns intersect beautifully with LED lighting, as switching to LED bulbs come not only with cost benefits, but environmental benefits as well. One of the best parts of switching over to LED lighting has to do with the energy related benefits that it provides its users with. By switching over to Enertech’s Easy LED™ bulbs, your business can expect to notice a near 50% decrease in energy consumption. Consuming less energy and enjoying decreased energy costs is the goal!

For businesses concerned with their carbon footprint, LEDs are a major boon thanks to incredible energy efficiency. However, the eco-friendly aspects don’t end when the bulb finally burns out. Unlike incandescent bulbs that contain toxic mercury, LEDs can be recycled when they reach the end of their usable life.

Those are just a few ways that switching over to LED lighting can benefits businesses. We will continue this blog series in our next post, but until then, for all of your LED lighting needs, contact Enertech Energy Management Solutions today.
